WHAT IS THE TAX FACULTY ABOUT?

Accredited as a non-profit tertiary and continuing professional development (CPD) provider, The Tax Faculty’s focus is solely on tax studies. We take pride in our ability to provide students with the requisite skills required of the twenty-first century tax professional.

At the core of our educational methodology, The Tax Faculty teaches students to approach business and tax problems using critical thinking skills. In preparing future tax leaders with metacognitive skills, our tuition methodology develops higher order thinking skills through analysis, evaluation and synthesis. This unique tuition approach aims to develop sound reasoning, questioning and investigating, observing and describing, comparing and connecting, finding complexity, and exploring different viewpoints.

Our collaboration with the University of South Africa (Unisa) and Wits University (Wits) enables us to offer students access to high-quality, accredited, applied and career-focused learning programmes. Course tuition is provided by The Tax Faculty, whereas Unisa and Wits offer the examination and certification on short learning programmes. 

Our accreditation as a registered skills development partner under the Skills Development Act, 1998 (Act No 97 of 1998) by the Quality Council for Trades and Occupations (QCTO) enables us to offer the Technician and Tax Professional occupational qualifications registered with the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA).

As an approved CPD provider by the South African Institute of Tax Professionals (SAIT), a SARS recognised controlling body under the Tax Administration Act, 2011 (Act No 28 of 2011), we offer best-in-class tax CPD.
