Lloyds International College was founded by Kofi Ameyaw Osei and
his wife Liba Osei in July 1999, as private College offering courses
mainly to International students.
The College has always been at 307 Pitt Street, Sydney, being centrally
located in a very accessible location near Town Hall Station. Initially
it started on Level 5 as an ELICOS College, offering General English
and IELTS courses, but then expanded into VET courses in Business
and Information Technology. The College also expanded to included
Level 1 of 307 Pitt Street.
During its relatively short existence the College has built up
an excellent record of service to students, quality of teaching
and compliance with government regulations. The English College
in particular has always had a high reputation. A wide and varied
network of agents and contacts was established and maintained.
The original owners were Caprock International Pty Ltd trading
as Lloyds International College, and this was the basis of the CRICOS
entries under the Commonwealth Department of Education Science and
In May 2003 the owners of Caprock decided to move overseas to pursue
other interests, and made an arrangement to sell their interest
in Lloyds International College. New prospective new owners established
a company known as Lloyds International Pty Ltd, with the intention
of taking over the College. However, a number of factors worked
against this arrangement and control of the College reverted to
the original owners, who then looked for new buyers.
In September 2004 a new Board of Directors was established and
Lloyds College now plans to move on and to develop and expand to
the mutual benefit of students, staff and the international student
area in Australia.
Recent events have seen firm articulation arrangements with the
Central Queensland University campus in Sydney, the benefit for
students being that they do not have to provide additional evidence
once they have graduated at Lloyds.
