    There is no doubt that the 8 areas served us well over the years, providing a structure to the MSc (Level 1) curriculum and ensuring breadth of knowledge at entry level for aspiring Occupational Psychologists. Nevertheless, calls for the curriculum to change and be brought up-to-date have been voiced at regular intervals. An extensive report by an expert panel delivered to the Division in 2011 emphasized the need for change, now or never, so this is what a dedicated project board set out to do. This session will introduce and launch the new curriculum by explaining the consultative and iterative process taken, the rationale for the new and broader topic areas and also the new emphasis on practical as well as research skills. There will also be plenty of opportunity to ask any questions. For further information on the background for the project, please visit
