Continuous Professional Development (CPD)

 

 

SABPP aims to sustaining the HR profession through the creation of a culture of continuous professional development (CPD) and ensuring that all registered professionals maintain their competence and professionalism.  

 

The SABPP CPD is a blend of input or output-based methods, concepts and practises that are aimed at assisting the HR professional to progress throughout her or his career.

 

CPD is based on the following principles

 

An understanding among practitioners of the importance of continued professional development in the promotion of HR professionalism in South Africa.

There is an ethical obligation on HR practitioners to regularly enhance their professional competence through CPD, as stated in the SABPP Code of Ethics.

CPD should complement and update, but not replace, knowledge and skills gained through initial education in HR practices.

CPD is based on the SABPP HR Competency Model.

CPD is based on various forms of learning, including formal and non-formal activities, covering theory, practical, workplace or actual demonstrated abilities.

 

 

 

 

CPD Cycle and Effective date of the new CPD


The CPD cycle will be from January to December every year. All new members registered after January are expected to achieve the necessary requirements for the year on a pro rata basis.

 

New CPD comes into effect as of the 1st of July 2020.
