Professional Development
  • CPTD Orientation and Sign-up for Principals,
    Deputy Principals and Schools
  • Targets for Schools 25 851, Principals and
    Deputy Principals 40 747
  • The targets were initially planned and approved
    in the 2012/13 APP with an understanding that the
    CPTD system implementation would start at the
    beginning of the 2012/13 financial year.
  • The implementation of the CPTD Management system
    did not take place as planned due to other
    systems and processes (as per the CPTD Status
    Report A report based on the pilot July 2012)
    that needed to be reviewed and updated first
    before full roll out takes place.
  • Subsequently, the CPTD implementation plan was
    approved by Council in November 2012. This meant
    that the activities in the implementation plan
    (for example, the principals/deputy principals
    and schools sign-ups) could only start at the
    beginning of 2013 (which is also the last quarter
    of the 2012/13 financial year).
  • Therefore the first three quarters of the 2012/13
    financial year were spent on planning and
    preparations for the phased-in implementation

CPTD Orientation and School Sign-Up
  • Establishment and Capacity Building of a National
    Orientation and Sign-up Team
  • The team has been established and capacitated to
    assist SACE and the 9 PEDs in implementing the
    CPTD system in provinces and more specifically in
    Orientating and Signing-up Principals and Deputy
  • The team consists of SACE, DBE, 9 PEDs, national
    teacher unions, National Independent School
    Association (NAISA), and South African Principals
    Association (SAPA).

CPTD Orientation and School Sign-Up
  • Engagements with Stakeholders and the Provincial
    Heads of Departments / SGs
  • 28 CPTD engagement sessions (meetings/information
    sharing sessions/workshops) held with all the
    national and provincial and national stakeholders
    (teacher unions, SAPA, NAISA, SGBs)
  • Visits to the SGs / Heads of Departments in the 3
    provinces (Western cape, Northwest, and Gauteng)
    to also share the CPTD implementation plan,
    clarify roles and responsibilities, and identify
    areas of collaboration for
  • Purpose of the Engagement sessions
  • sharing the CPTD implementation plan
  • Buy-in
  • identifying areas of collaboration and support
  • Clarify roles and responsibilities

CPTD Orientation and School Sign-Up
  • CPTD Orientation and Sign-Up Sessions
  • Phased-in implementation is done according to the
    three cohorts Principals and Deputies (2014),
    HODs (2015) and PL1 Teachers (2016)
  • All the cohorts must be orientated and sign-up
    for the CPTD System a year before their three
    year CPTD cycle starts (e.g. Principals and
    Deputy Principals orientation and sign-up takes
    place in 2013 and their three year CPTD cycle
    starts in January 2014)

CPTD Orientation and School Sign-Up Achievements
  • The 10 Principals and Deputy Principal CPTD
    orientation sessions held focused on
  • An overview of the CPTD System

  • Signing-up and how to use the CPTD self-service

    and subject to approval by the PC chairperson

CPTD Orientation and School Sign-Up Achievements

  • Create a clean and updated database of educators
    and schools with relevant information / fields /
    variables for teacher education and development
    purposes (link ups with SA SAMS, EMIS, SACE
  • Create individual CPTD Accounts / Records of
    principals and deputy principals/schools
    participation in the CPTD System and professional
    development uptake
  • Provide individual educators and schools with
    login details through an sms (username and
    password) so that they can utilise the CPTD
    self-service portal to

CPTD Orientation and School Sign-Up Achievements
  • Actual Sign-Ups (January March 2013)

  • The CPTD orientation and sign-up sessions planned
    jointly with Northwest, Free State, and
    Mpumalanga Provincial Education Departments, for
    the last quarter of the financial, were postponed
    due to teacher union disengagement with DBE,
    PEDs, and SACE.
  • This had a direct bearing on the number of
    principals and deputy principals participating in
    the CPTD Orientation Sessions and Signing-Up.
