Who is Eligible?
To be eligible to become Board-approved, psychologists must have held general registration as a psychologist for:
- two years before starting as a secondary supervisor
-three years before starting as a primary supervisor
Psychologists providing supervision in the registrar program, must have held endorsement in the relevant approved area of practice for at least two years before starting supervision. The supervisor must continue to hold that endorsement for the whole period of supervision.
The training offered by Clinical Supervision Services (CSS) has been specifically designed to meet the requirements for psychologists who wish to become supervisors of Higher Degree students, interns (+ 2 and + 1 pathways) and supervisors in the area of practice endorsement of clinical psychology.
Psychologists previously approved by the Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency (AHPRA) prior to July 2013, are eligible to undertake a Supervisor Master Class which will allow individuals to maintain their Board approved supervisor status.
The Full Training and Master Class options are available nationally to organisations by arrangement.
