The National Registration and Accreditation Scheme (the National Scheme) regulates more than 850,000 registered health practitioners and over 180,000 registered students across 16 health professions. 15 health profession boards and the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (Ahpra) work together to deliver the National Scheme.

The Psychology Board of Australia (the Board) has established national committees who work in partnership with Ahpra to make registration and notification (complaint) decisions about individual practitioners, based on national policies and standards set by the Board.

Vacancies for community members have arisen on the following committees:

  • Psychology Immediate Action Committee

  • Psychology Registration and Compliance Committee

*PNCC is divided into two cohorts. We have community member vacancies for both committees.

We are seeking individuals with an ability and interest to contribute to the regulatory work of the committees. Community members will have strong community connections to bring a public/lay perspective.

Location: Committee meetings are held online via Zoom (or similar).

Time commitment: Time commitment varies, approximately one to two days per month, including reading and preparation time.

Eligibility: A person is not eligible to be appointed as a community member if they are currently, or have previously been, a registered psychologist. Employees and contractors for Ahpra are not eligible for these positions.

Training and development: Orientation program and ongoing training provided. Participation at conferences or in professional development activities may be required.

Our commitment: The National Scheme has an important role in ensuring the development of a culturally safe and respectful health workforce that is responsive to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples health and contributes to the elimination of racism in the provision of health services. We have committed to increasing Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander leadership and voices and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples are warmly invited to apply, as are people from rural or regional areas.
