The company was founded in 1997, with its first premises in Swatar, limits of Dingli. It was formerly known as the Government Computer Centre. Fourteen IT firms together with the Government of Malta agreed to set up a joint venture company having the mandate to establish an effective and profitable centre of training excellence that would offer whole-life continuation training in the development of IT skills.
5 months later we signed up with NCC Education, global provider of British Education providing affordable degrees and master’s in Business and IT. A unique and flexible approach to providing the International Degree Pathway allows students to enter or leave their degree journey at their own pace and receive a certificate for their achievements at each stage
We accepted our first intake of students in Dingli in 1997.
In July 2006 the company relocated to a more central, accessible location in Pembroke in order to better serve its ever-increasing student numbers. The move heralded a new era for the organisation in an area designated by government for the development of educational institutions.
Partnership with Middlesex University
In 2009 we set up a partnership with Middlesex University, enabling participants to obtain internationally accredited qualifications by studying locally.
