Consultation paper released

07 Jul 2017

The Psychology Board of Australia (the Board) has published Consultation Paper 28: National Psychology Examination Curriculum Review.

The curriculum was first published in 2012, with the National psychology examination coming into effect on 1 July 2013.

The Board has determined to review the curriculum every three to five years in keeping with good regulatory practice. The aim of the review is to ensure that the examination:

  • assesses the right competencies for general registration as a psychologist in Australia
  • remains fit-for-purpose
  • is aligned with the newly published International declaration of core competencies in professional psychology(2016), and that the
  • curriculum is up-to-date with advances in the field of psychology.

The Board is seeking feedback on the proposed updates to the national psychology examination curriculum from all stakeholders.

The consultation paper is available under Current consultations and the Board is accepting submissions until close of business (AEST) Friday 1 September 2017.

Please provide written submissions in Word format by email, marked ‘Consultation – National psychology examination curriculum review’ to [email protected].
