Student Membership


SABPP is excited about the future of the HR profession, we realise that in order to develop the future HR talent pool we need to give recognition to our youth; those young men and women who have committed themselves to the Human Resources field. SABPP has thus taken the important role of ensuring that tertiary students are fully prepared for a working environment in the HR field.

What happens next?
The SABPP Student Chapter?
As of January 2015, SABPP has actively begun creating awareness and launching student chapters at universities and colleges around South Africa. The SABPP Student Chapter is an exclusive SABPP H.R Student society, comprising of HR students who are actively registered as Student Members with the SABPP.

This exclusive society will become recognized and deemed a SABPP Student Chapter once 50 students from the specific institution have registered with SABPP. As part of developing the future talent pool SABPP recognises the important role it can play to ensure that tertiary students are fully prepared for a working environment in the HR field.

Once officially recognized, SABPP will correspond with students from the University Student Chapter and offer and provide as much support as possible to ensure that awareness is created about the importance of HR and good ethics and practice in the field of HR. Any events to promote the HR Field will be supported by SABPP and funded by SABPP. SABPP aims at practically preparing students to become familiar with the HR profession.
