Overview of the cptd system and implementation plan

OVERVIEW OF THE CPTD SYSTEM AND IMPLEMENTATION PLAN

Ella Mokgalane

SAPA KZN CONFERENCE

23 August 2013


National policy and legislative context

National Policy and Legislative Context


National policy and legislative context1

National Policy and Legislative Context

  • SACE is a professional council established in terms of the SACE Act no. 31 (2000), as amended

  • The Act mandate SACE to:

    • Register educators;

    • Manage a system for Continuing Professional Development of all educators;

    • Ensure educators’ adherence to the Code of Professional Ethics


National policy and legislative context2

National Policy and Legislative Context...

  • SACE’s additional mandate comes from the National Policy Framework on Teacher Education and Development (NPFTED) in South Africa, April 2007

  • Section 53 of the NPFTED (2007) states that

    “…the South African Council for Educators (SACE), as the professional body for professional educators, will have the overall responsibility for the implementation, management and quality assurance of the CPTD system. SACE will be provided with the necessary resources and support to undertake that role”


National policy and legislative context3

National Policy and Legislative Context...

  • This mandate is supported and enhanced by the Departments of Basic Education and Higher Education and Training’s Integrated Strategic Planning Framework for Teacher Education and Development in South Africa, 2011 – 2025

  • The plan indicates the following explicitly:

    • that it (the plan) must be considered by other planning processes such as those related to IQMS, WSE, NEEDU and the SACE CPTD Management System

    • The TED ICT support system will be linked to the SACE CPTD Management System


Teacher development framework and cptd management system

Teacher Development Framework and CPTD Management System


National policy and legislative context4

National Policy and Legislative Context...

  • Lastly, SACE’s role of managing the CPTD Management System has been strengthened further through National Planning Commission’s (NPC) National Development Plan released in August 2012.

  • The Plan acknowledges SACE as key role player in continuing professional development of teachers and the promotion of professional standards.


National policy and legislative context5

National Policy and Legislative Context...

  • The NPC’s National Development Plan (2012) specifically states the following:

     ”Teachers must take the initiative to identify the areas in which they need further development and approach the department for assistance to access training opportunities. Courses that are in line with the requirements of the teacher’s job must be fully subsidised by the government and should take place outside term time.

    On completion of the course or professional development activities, teachers should earn points towards meeting the Continuing Professional Teacher Development requirements of the South African Council for Educators (pp307-308).


National policy and legislative context6

National Policy and Legislative Context...

  • Secondly, with regard to providers offering professional development activities to educators, the Plan indicates that there is a need to:

    “Allow a wide range of training providers to offer professional development courses for teachers, subject to approval by the South African Council for Educators (pp307-308)”


National policy and legislative context7

National Policy and Legislative Context...

  • Finally, it also recognises teacher unions’ role in providing professional development by indicating the need to:

  • “Assist unions in developing the capacity to implement continuous professional development strategies for their members. Over time, accredit professional development institutes linked to unions so that they can offer continuous professional development that earns points towards meeting the Continuing Professional Teacher Development requirements of the South African Council for Educators. (p. 308)”


The cptd management system

The CPTD Management System


Introduction

Introduction….

  • All workers, including professionals like teachers, need lifelong learning to do their jobs better

    • To improve their knowledge

    • To improve their skills

    • To keep up to date with new research

    • To learn from colleagues

  • Better teachers will help learners to learn better and become better citizens


What is the cptd management system

What is the CPTD ManagementSystem?

It is a system for recognising all useful teacher development activities

  • By approving quality and credible professional development providers

  • By endorsing relevant and good professional development quality activities and programmes

  • By allocating professional development (PD) points to such activities

  • By crediting each teacher’s CPTD account / record with the PD points they have earned


Purpose of the cptd system

Purpose of the CPTD System

  • Ensure that all professional development

    programmes contribute more effectively and

    directly to the improvement of teaching and

    learning;

  • Emphasise and reinforce the professional

    status of teaching;

  • Provide educators with clear guidance about

    which Professional Development (PD) activities will contribute to their professional growth;


Purpose of the cptd system1

Purpose of the CPTD System..

  • Protect teachers from fraudulent providers; and

  • Expand the range of activities that contribute to the professional development of teachers


Vision of the cptd system

Vision of the CPTD system

  • Tosupport and facilitatethe process of continuing professional development

  • To give recognitionto teachers who commit themselves to continuing professional development

  • To revitalize the teaching profession


What is sace s role in continuing professional development

What is SACE’s Role in Continuing Professional Development

  • It is very important to clarify the role of SACE in Continuing Professional Development (CPD) to avoid confusing it with that of the employers

  • “SACE IS NOT A PROVIDER OF CONTINUING PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT”

  • The CPTD Management System will not provide professional development activities to teachers.

  • It will help SACE to work with teachers and providers to improve the provision and take-up of professional development activities and manage that.


Cptd system target audience

CPTD System Target Audience

  • In terms of the NPFTED (2007) the CPTD Management System will be made available to all school-based educators (principals, deputy principals, HoDs, teachers) whether:

    • state-employed,

    • employed by School Governing Bodies, or

    • employed by independent schools


The basic structure of the cptd system

The Basic Structure of the CPTD System

  • Educators engage in three kinds of SACE Endorsed Professional Development (PD) activities / programmes:

    • Teacher initiated activities (Personal)

    • School initiated activities (School)

    • Externally initiated (Providers)

  • Externally initiated activities will be offered by:

    • Educators’ employers (PEDs, SGBs, Independent Schools/Boards

    • Higher Education Institutions (HEIs)

    • Teacher Unions

    • NGOs / CBOs / FBOs

    • Professional Associations, Private Providers and others

  • Educators will earn their PD Points from each of the three types of Professional Development Activities


  • The basic structure of the cptd system1

    The Basic Structure of the CPTD System

    • SACE will allocate professional development (PD) points to educators’ professional development activities according to a schedule of points approved by SACE

    • Each educator will be expected to achieve 150 PD points on their PD points Account in every three year cycle.

    •  SACE will issue a Certificate of Achievement to each educator who achieves the 150 PD points within the three years as follows:


    The basic structure of the cptd system2

    The Basic Structure of the CPTD System

    • Bronze Certificate of Achievement to each educator who achieves 150 PD points within the three years.

    • A Silver Certificate of Achievement to each educator who achieves 150+ to 300 PD points within the three years.

    • A Gold Certificate of Achievement to each educator who achieves 300+ PD points within the three years.


    Professional development portfolio

    Professional Development Portfolio

    • Each educator will have a personal Professional Development Portfolio (PDP) developed according to SACE guidelines.

    • The PDP will provide advice and support on professional development.

    • It will also be a personal record of an educator’s professional development journey.


    What is the professional development portfolio for

    What is the Professional Development Portfolio For?...

    • The PDP is a resource document to assist each educator’s professional growth. It will contain:

      • Advice on understanding and analysing a teacher’s professional development needs

      • The educator’s analysis of professional development needs and ways of addressing them

      • Guidance on how the educator can undertake or access professional development activities information on the CPTD Management System

      • A record and evidence of the educator’s PD activities and PD points earned


    Will educators be expected to submit their pdps to sace

    Will Educators Be Expected to Submit their PDPs to SACE?

    • No. The PDP will be the educator’s own property, kept and signed by an educator.

    • Educators will monitor their own participation in PD activities, guided by their personal Professional Development Portfolio (PDP).

    • The principal and SMT in each school will use it to monitor their educators’ PD participation and discuss improvements in departmental and staff meetings or with individual educators.


    Will educators be expected to submit their pdps to sace1

    Will Educators Be Expected to Submit their PDPs to SACE?

    • SACE will monitor a representative sample of educators’ PDPs each year to see how educators are using the system, and will provide feedback on its findings to the educators and schools concerned


    Who will have access to an educator s pdp

    Who will Have Access to an Educator’s PDP?

    • The following persons will have access to the PDP for developmental or monitoring purposes:

      • The school principal or delegated SMT member

      • An authorised representative of an educator’s employer

      • An authorised SACE representative.

    • An educator will record Type 1 and Type 2 PD points in the personal PDP according to the PD Points Schedule.

    • SACE expects educator to record their points honestly. Dishonest reporting is unprofessional conduct. It may also be a breach of SACE’s Code of Professional Ethics

    • Educators will report their participation in Professional Development twice a year manually on a form prescribed by SACE or electronically on the CPTD self-service portal – in June and November


    How will a educators pd points be reported to sace

      • must keep abreast with educational developments

        .


    Is participation in professional development compulsory1

    • Principals, deputy principals and heads of department are required, as part of their duties and responsibilities, to help teachers develop professionally.

    • They are also required to develop themselves

    • So, professional development is an all-teacher and all-school affair

    • SACE expects and encourages all teachers to sign up for the CPTD Management System as it rolls out so that they keep up to date and on their toes professionally


    What happens if educators don t reach the 150 points target

    What Happens if Educators don’t Reach the 150 Points Target?

    • For the first six years (starting from 2014) SACE will not impose a penalty on educators who don’t achieve the PD points target on time.

    • After six years SACE will review the situation and make a decision about sanctions for non-compliance.
