Consultation on the new occupational stage 2 qualification now open

26 November 2017

The Society’s Occupational Psychology Qualifications Board is now consulting on the proposed design of the new Qualification in Occupational Psychology (QOP) Stage 2.

The proposed new qualification will follow a more developmental structure and will prepare candidates for undertaking their own research and interrogating existing research. 

The introduction of a viva as part of the final summative assessment has also been put forward, this will give candidates the opportunity to talk about their work and prepare them for a career as a qualified practitioner.  The assessment criteria have also been streamlined and standardised, and built around the six stages of the consultancy cycle.

The consultation is now live and runs until 16 January 2018.  The Board is very keen for Society members to have their say and get involved in shaping the new qualification which represents a significant departure from the current qualification.

Angie Ingman, Chair of the Occupational Psychology Qualifications Board said:

“This is a chance for the Qualification in Occupational Psychology to be more in line with the work we do as well as the MSc modules. A new qualification that will develop the Chartered psychologists of the future.“
