Offering a broad range of subject areas across English language, financial and quantitative, marketing and business as well as business administration and IT, LCCI qualifications equip learners with work ready skills to prosper in their careers.

“As an institution, this provides Southville an opportunity to offer an international qualification to learners who aim to work globally with an internationally recognised certificate. This qualification is not limited to the learners of schooling age, but likewise to individuals who want to add international credentials to their resumes. As a faculty, the partnership with Pearson provides us with international training to deliver LCCI qualification to Filipinos. For the students, this will help them be more competitive in the global market place.”, shared by Ms. Caroline Mediodia, SISFU’s Programme Leader - Head of Graduate School.
