Review of Accreditation Standards for the Psychology Profession in Australia 2013
At the request of the Psychology Board of Australia, APAC has undertaken a major review of the accreditation standards for the psychology profession in Australia (the Review).
As part of the Review, APAC re-drafted the current APAC Accreditation Standards for Psychology Courses (the main standards for undergraduate and postgraduate programs of study in psychology in Australia), which have been in place since June 2010. APAC expects to release new standards in 2014.
Draft Standards: Area of Practice Endorsement
A second set of draft standards, concerned with the specialised components of professional postgraduate programs of education intended to qualify graduates for entry to an Area of Practice Endorsement Registrar program, will be released for public consultation in 2014.
APAC encourages all stakeholders to participate in this important review of standards for the education and training of psychologists in Australia.
APAC welcomes feedback from stakeholders.
