The issue of training career counsellors in Australia requires considerable review with respect to theory and practice. This paper describes an internship model of training in career counselling for candidates enrolled in a master-level qualification in psychology. The program takes a competency-based format and engages interns in the work of career counselling in the higher education sector. The value of competency-based learning and integration of training into extant professional degrees are highlighted as promising avenues for the development of career counsellors.
