The new SAICA output-based CPD process


SAICA’s new CPD model more explicitly recognises that different professionals have different development needs and requires practitioners to take ownership of their professional development by following three broad stages of the output-based CPD reflective cycle. These stages are PAR:

  1. Planning through reflecting on your practice to identify their own developmental needs
  2. Action by undertaking appropriate CPD activities to meet the developmental need(s) you have identified and applying what you have learnt to your practice; and
  3. Reflecting by measuring the impact of CPD on your practice and identifying any further developmental needs.
