The perfect
collaboration

Upskill is in the process of developing its own CPD compliance tool in collaboration with LTS. LTS has vast experience in offering their clients cutting edge online assessment solutions, combined with old school support. LTS helps thousands of trainees across hundreds of growing training sites not only across Southern Africa, but also in the United Kingdom and Channel Islands. Our collaboration with LTS represents the alignment of our values and passion for the development of students and professionals. The SAICA output-based CPD policy became effective on 01 January 2020 and members are required to complete and maintain a CPD reflective plan annually. The SAICA member is then required to attend relevant and appropriate training linked directly to the competencies identified by the member in the CPD reflective plan.

What is the Upskill CPD solution?

The Upskill CPD solution will offer CA’s an integrated, one-stop-shop to not only manage their CPD compliance, but to also access relevant training from a wide variety of content creators. Our solution will allow CA’s to manage their CPD compliance on an electronic dashboard and access training, all in one place. No longer do you have to source and find training providers across various platforms to fulfil your needs. Our solution will make your CPD journey easy to manage and to comply with, all in one place. Access to carefully curated technical and professional skills content will be part of our offering to CA’s.

Who delivers the training

We are in the process of signing on several content creators across diverse technical and professional skill disciplines. We want to ensure our library includes training and thought leadership discussions from various service providers all in one place. The training you will have access to is therefore not content exclusively created by Upskill. Our aim is to ensure our clients have a variety of content creators to pick from. All our training will be online and will therefore allow the CA to access content anytime, anywhere.

When do we go live?

We are hard at work to ensure we build a world class product that is easy to use and seamlessly integrates into the Upskill platform. As CA’s you will be able to purchase our solution through an annual subscription fee for the first full CPD calendar year (2022) towards the end of 2021. We will be running various promotions in the second half of 2021 that will allow CA’s to sign up for 2022 in advance at reduced subscription prices. Should our solution be ready for roll-out earlier, we will ensure you are notified first.
