The Board has released its new Guidelines for the 5+1 internship program.
All sixth year interns currently undertaking the program have been automatically transferred to the new guideline. The Board has published information about transferring to the new guidelines in a new fact sheet for 5+1 pathway provisional psychologists and the 5+1 section of the website has been updated.
The Board has also released a suite of user-friendly reporting and recording forms to support the new 5+1 guideline.
The development of the Guidelines for the 5+1 internship program included wide-ranging consultation with the profession and the community. Feedback from provisional psychologists, supervisors, employers, professional associations, consumers and other stakeholders has been invaluable and is now being used to inform work on the new guideline for 4+2 internship programs. A public consultation paper on the 4+2 will be released in 2014.
