Please note: The Standard Pathway Assessment (SPA) has been discontinued effective 19 June 2019 and we will not be accepting any new applicants to commence the pathway.

The new assessment process is being developed to align with contemporary assessment practices and we anticipate the new pathway will be available in early 2020. Please contact us if you have any questions
