Welcome To Our Staff Development Academy (SDA)


As we advance into our ONE SMART CPUT journey, the Human Capital: Learning and Development Department wishes to communicate the updates of our newly developed Staff Development Academy (SDA).  Our collective approach to managing and delivering learning and development for CPUT employees is a combination of learning opportunities from various internal departments and partnership with external role-players.  It is our vision for a ONE SMART CPUT Online Staff Development Academy where all learning and development programs are available to all employees to promote a learning culture. This vision is striving to ensure that every one of our employees acquires the opportunity to develop their skills and knowledge.

Learning and development is about much more than attending a training course. In times of rapid change, it’s more important than ever that you have the support you need to keep learning and developing, building your confidence and increasing both your job satisfaction and productivity.

This platform includes information and resources under the following tabs:

  • Induction
  • Booking Courses
  • Human Capital (HC and Learning and Development)
  • Resources
  • Contact Us

This year the Staff Development Academy will be offering more than 50 learning programmes. This includes learning programmes based on the learning needs identified by staff members, institutional learning knowledge and skills, as well as our partners that we collaborate with. (CHEC, Hers SA, NPA and LinkedIn)

Whatever you want or need to learn, there should be something here for you. We will also be updating and improving this platform throughout the year as more types of learning programmes and topics become available. This will be publicised via Newsflash and the Staff Skills Development Committee (SDC).

We are keen to hear your views and look forward to continuing working with you. Please assist us in sharing your comments, experience, ideas and feedback by completing the following short survey https://forms.office.com/r/jHLUFSB5eS .
