Clinical psychology training programmes in Australia are under pressure to increase the number of graduates they produce and to ensure that these graduates meet professional competencies. This Australian Learning and Teaching Council funded project aimed to better align clinical psychology training curriculums to competencies in several key areas, including competency assessment, e-therapy training models and models of university-based clinic operation, distance (especially rural) training concerns and clinical supervision issues and strategies. The project team has drawn together an advisory board of relevant stakeholders, scoped the relevant empirical literature, surveyed current students and programme directors, and is in the process of transferring innovations developed in one university to others across the country. This chapter provides a summary of important structural components of the proposal, key process issues, and important outcomes to date, as well as overarching future considerations.
