Committee Vacancies

Partnership and Accreditation Committee: Chair Vacancy

The Society is looking to appoint an experienced Chartered Psychologist to chair its Partnership and Accreditation Committee (PAC). PAC is responsible for overseeing the Society’s accreditation process on behalf of the Society’s Membership and Standards Board, and for ensuring that standards of psychology education and training are maintained and enhanced at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. The Chair will have a key co-ordinating role to play here. Ours is a collaborative approach, and PAC works to support effective partnership working both with the Society members who undertake our accreditation process, and with our university partners who deliver accredited programmes. Overall, we are seeking an individual who will be able to champion our work, and help us work with our partners to develop it further in line with the priorities outlined in the Society’s strategic plan.

PAC meets three times per year, and holds an annual partnership event for members of its constituent committees. In addition, the PAC Chair also sits on the Membership and Standards Board, which meets four times per year. There is also the potential for involvement in Society working groups.
