Accreditation standards

Accreditation standards are used to assess whether a program of study, and the education provider that provides the program of study, provide persons who complete the program with the knowledge, skills and professional attributes to practise the profession.

Interim accreditation standards (November 2012) took effect when published on the Board’s website on 23 November 2012.

The Board has now approved the revised Accreditation standards for Australian entry-level occupational therapy education programs (December 2013) at its meeting on 20 June 2013.

The standards were revised following wide-ranging consultation, as required under section 46 of the National Law. In accordance with section 47(7)(b) of the National Law the accreditation standards will take effect at the later date as stated in the standard (i.e. 1 December 2013).

Please refer to the Occupational Therapy Council (OTC) website for further information.
