Why Study at GTIB?

GTIB has developed a unique education and training philosophy which encompasses four major pillars:

High completion rates

Ample support and encouragement is provided for each learner, including facilitators, a study group, and a help line. We are not content with a 50% pass mark; we work with each learner to identify the barriers to understanding and attempt to address these. With small class sizes, facilitators can provide personal attention to each individual.

Fundamental soft and hard skills

We ensure all learners have the fundamental skills required to succeed in their studies and careers. This includes lifelong learning skills, communication skills, the principles of professional success.

Work-readiness through
professional simulation

All learners can apply their knowledge practically upon completion. Programmes include activities and case studies which simulate challenges presented in real world professional situations.

Job placements

With a wide range of corporate relationships in the accounting and financial sectors, GTIB provides career guidance and will assist graduates to find work.

Online Learning

GTIB has developed an online learning platform which guides the student and provides additional resources to enhance the learning experience.

All students enrolled in the GTIB programmes must have their own laptop computers with a data connection. This facilitates access to the online platform and supports the development of critical computer skills prior to entering the job market. GTIB will assist in the procurement of a laptop at discounted prices for those who do not already have one.

Qualifications Offered

GTIB is accredited by the relevant quality assurance bodies to deliver SAQA registered qualifications with a focus on the Accounting and Financial Sectors. Approximately 120 credits can be completed in one year of study for a full time student. If you have completed prior related qualifications, you may be able to earn credits through a Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) and shorten the duration of your studies.

Testimonials from Graduates

“The Guarantee Trust Virtual Bank program made it very clear for me how things work in a bank and what will be expected of me when I start working… It would have taken time for me to get used to processes and procedures of the bank had I not done this program.”

Mbali Nzimande

Sales and Service Consultant

“I was the ‘Top Banker for Small Business’ in the country for September 2014. I was again the Number 1 Banker in February 2015, out of 124 bankers nationally. I attribute these accolades to the skills I acquired from Guarantee Trust. The Virtual Bank simulation training made me focus and able to work under pressure, within short time frames.”

Mziwendoda Qaba

Small Business Division

“I consider myself really fortunate to have been accepted onto this (Guarantee Trust Accounting) program… I completed the program after which I was placed at Equity Accounting in Durban. On my first day, I was given two huge bags full of invoices. I had to do the bookkeeping for one of the famous stores in the Pavilion Shopping Centre… I managed to do it without any problems. Thanks to the facilitators of Guarantee Trust, I was already skilled in these tasks… I now have the designation of Professional Accountant…. In June 2011, after completing my articles, I got a job at the department of Justice as Assistant Director: Finance.”

Nonhlanhla Zikalala

Professional Accountant

“I felt really bad about my situation because I didn’t think I deserved to be unemployed. If there was any time in my life that left me hopeless, it was that period. I was left feeling worthless. It was in the midst of all that confusion that my fellow student showed me an advert about a company looking for trainee graduates and let’s just say, that advert is the reason I am a Financial Accountant at one of the leading banks in South Africa, Standard Bank”
