The South African Council for Educators (SACE) is responsible for managing and implementing the Continuing Professional Teacher Development (CPTD) System, with the support of the Department of Basic Education (DBE) and the 9 Provincial Education Departments (PEDs).
What is the CPTD Management System?
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
