Review of Accreditation Standards for the Psychology Profession in Australia 2013 and 2014
At the request of the Psychology Board of Australia, APAC is undertaking a major review of the accreditation standards for the psychology profession in Australia (the Review).
As part of the Review, APAC has re-drafted the current APAC Accreditation Standards for Psychology Courses (the main standards for undergraduate and postgraduate programs of study in psychology in Australia), that have been in place since June 2010. The revised draft Standards are currently being considered for approval under Section 47 of the National Law by the Psychology Board of Australia. APAC expects the new standards to be released 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.
