UCW Limited (UCW or the Company) owns and operates tertiary education businesses, with a current focus on Health and Community Services fields of study. The Company's strategy is to foster and support growth in its existing businesses, through initiatives such as course, campus and delivery-mode expansion, while concurrently pursuing complementary acquisition opportunities. The Board includes directors with extensive experience in for-profit education.
UCW currently has two wholly-owned subsidiaries:
Australian Learning Group Pty Limited (ALG) - acquired 24 March 2016; and
- Proteus Technologies Pty Ltd trading as Ikon Institute of Australia (Ikon) - acquired 4 July 2018.
Ikon is both a VET and a higher education (HE) provider, with a primary focus on higher education and the domestic student market. Ikon also operates nationally, including in Adelaide, where its head office is based.
In addition to its wholly-owned subsidiaries, and outside of its current Health and Community Services focus, UCW owns 24.57% of the ordinary shares in Gradability Pty Ltd (Gradability), acquired 11 July 2017, one of the leading providers of the Professional Year Program (PYP). The PYP is a work-readiness program for international student graduates in Information Technology, Accounting and Engineering, which includes an internship in an Australian workplace.
