About BlueCrest College

BlueCrest College was conceived as a high-tech Centre of Excellence in Sierra Leone in February 2014. The mandate of the College was to carry out scientific, technological, management, professional, vocational and skill development courses to benefit the youth of Sierra Leone.


In April 2015, The National Council for Technical, Vocational and Other Academic Awards (NCTVA) of Republic of Sierra Leone granted Accreditation to BlueCrest College in respect of Diploma and Higher/ Advanced Diploma in the following domains:

  • Information Technology (Network Engineering)
  • Desktop Support Specialist
  • Web Design and Development
  • Accounting and Finance 
  • Business Management 
  • Management Information Systems among others.

While the country struggled against deadly EBOLA virus outbreak in 2014/15, BlueCrest persevered with the good people of Sierra Leone and continued to remain open thereby showing solidarity with the nation in the moment of dire need. As the country recovered from the scourge of Ebola in early 2015, BlueCrest was firmly positioned to help rebuild the nation through its capacity building programs for the youth. To express governmental support, several dignitaries from the Government visited the campus regularly and appraised its facilities and faculty which were assessed to be of international standards.   

The College achieved another milestone when The Tertiary Education Commission (TEC) of Sierra Leone, vide Registration number 037 dated 20th March 2017 and under Certificate no. TEC/SN/D/016, certified that BlueCrest College having fulfilled all the conditions provided in the TEC Act 2001, has been duly registered as a Certified Tertiary Education Institution.
