Australian Psychologists and Counsellors in Schools


Please click the link above for information on our 2015 conference, to be held in Adelaide.

AGCA has recently changed its name to APACS- The Australian Psychologists and Counsellors in Schools Association.

APACS is a professional association that provides leadership and support to its members in educational guidance and counselling. APACS has over a thousand members across Australia who work in school settings as school psychologists, guidance officers and school counsellors.

Support for APACS to attend International Conferences

The Australian Psychologists and Counsellors in Schools association (APACS) National Executive is keen to promote the excellent work of psychologists, counsellors and guidance officers in Australian schools. ISPA conducts an annual conference at which various countries are represented. These conferences have been found to be a rich source of evidence-‐based practice and exchange of ideas and research. APACS offers a subsidy for 3 APACS members, for $500 each, towards the cost of attending the ISPA conference.
