Study at Optima College

Optima College was established in 1985 in Baileys Muckleneuk in Pretoria and is the training facility of the South African National Council for the Blind. It provides training to blind and partially sighted persons who are in need of independence and/or work related skills. It is one of the only Colleges in South and Southern Africa that caters exclusively for blind and partially sighted persons.

We are proud to say that Optima College has been recognised for its excellence in the field and is a registered NPO and FET college.

Optima is a full residential facility offering courses in Business and Office Practice, Computer Literacy, Contact Centre training, and Braille Literacy. Students’ lives are also enriched with Activities of Daily Living skills classes which enable visually impaired students to be fully independent.

Although the facilities and training programmes are in the first place for the benefit of South African citizens, a small percentage of students from other African countries may also be admitted annually. South African students are drawn from all provinces of South Africa and there is no discrimination in terms of gender, race, language, religion - although English is the language of instruction on all courses. 

The College has committed itself to providing relevant training to all students, based on the assessment of their needs. Coming to the College is about moving in for the period of training, and then moving on, whether a student is a school leaver, or is returning to education or work. The commitment to each student is that an opportunity will be created that they can achieve their goals and hopefully reach their full potential.

VISION – Optima College is a centre of excellence, which offers development opportunities, training and support to visually impaired persons in South and Southern Africa, and serves as a bridge to new beginnings.


MISSION - Optima College is committed to:
Creating training opportunities for blind and partially sighted persons to develop relevant independence and work related skills, which will enable them to maximise their potential and to function as independently as possible, by using a comprehensive assessment process to identify their training needs and applying an individualised training approach.
