The Australian Physiotherapy Council is a not-for-profit public company that has two core responsibilities – we accredit entry-level physiotherapy programs delivered by Australian universities, and we assess overseas practitioners who wish to practice physiotherapy in Australia.
The Council is the appointed accrediting authority for physiotherapy under the National Registration and Accreditation Scheme (NRAS) and is authorised by the Physiotherapy Board of Australia which is part of the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (Ahpra).
The Council undertakes a range of activities as we deliver accreditation and assessment services. These include:
Our organisational values are our driving force that enables our people to focus on and deliver our purpose, vision, and mission.
These values inform how we serve and interact with our stakeholders, partners, and customers, and it is the standard we hold ourselves accountable to.
“If we can change somebody's life and give them a great experience on a day to day basis in the way that we deal with them, in making it more efficient, in the way we empower Universities to connect better or to do things better...when we can add the pixie dust, as it were, and make it so much better, so much smoother, more relational...we're creating a better humanity"
