CCMA, Bargaining Councils and Public Universities’ Statement
DELIVERY OF A NEW LABOUR DISPUTE RESOLUTION PRACTICE QUALIFICATION
10 January 2014
BY PUBLIC UNIVERSITIES
The CCMA and Bargaining Councils have embarked on an initiative to partner with Public Universities to
develop and deliver a qualification in Labour Dispute Resolution Practice.
• is targeted at aspirant CCMA commissioners and Bargaining Council panellists and trade union,
HR/IR and legal practitioners;
• is pitched at postgraduate level equivalent to NQF level 8, occupationally directed and aims to produce competent ready to practice graduates;
• includes all core aspects of the current CCMA commissioner training;
• includes training in substantive law and in-depth technical skills training on arbitration and conciliation;
• in addition, following a holistic approach, the Programme includes components on soft-skills, social justice, ethics, diversity and other topics. The Programme aims to equip participants to be competent conciliators and arbitrators, or to participate effectively in the conciliation and arbitration hearing process as a party. It will also empower participants to engage in a knowledgeable and skillful manner more broadly within the labour relations. A bridging component is also on offer for aspirant candidates who have potential, but do not meet the entry requirements.
The programme will be delivered by UWC early in 2014:
