Call for applications for appointment to the National Psychology Examination Committee

The Psychology Board of Australia (the Board) invites applications from registered and experienced psychologists seeking appointment to the National Psychology Examination Committee.

The Board is seeking members of the psychology profession who have experience and knowledge in the core competencies required for general registration in the profession, including experience in training, teaching, and assessment of professional competencies. Expertise is required in the following areas:

  • ethics and professional issues
  • assessment and psychological testing
  • interventions
  • communications including cross-cultural and diverse groups, and
  • multiple-choice test construction (test validation, parallel forms, statistics)

Committee appointments are made by the National Board, under the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law, as in force in each state and territory (the National Law). Members will include psychologists with different areas of practice (practitioners and academics; private and public sector psychologists).

The functions of the Committee are to develop the National Psychology Examination multiple-choice questions and to contribute to policy and curriculum frameworks and the development of resources (such as the reading list).

The committee meets in Melbourne between four – six times per year over two business days. Appointments are for up to two years, with eligibility for reappointment and are expected to commence in January 2015.

Your application will be assessed by a selection advisory panel.
