20 Nov Update: Architectural Education and the Profession in Australia and New Zealand
Survey of practitioners open until 14 December
A critical component of the Architectural Education and the Profession in Australia and New Zealand led by the AACA with the support of all architectural stakeholder organisations is a survey of practitioners (whether registered as architects or not).
The brief anonymous survey of practitioners working across all levels in the profession is open until 14 December. Interviews and focus groups teasing out findings of the survey will follow early in 2019, so it is important that all practitioners across the profession participate in the survey.
So, please make sure you complete the survey and encourage your colleagues to do likewise – regardless of their role and experience in practice. We want to hear all voices!
The Research Team is currently working on the literature review – an important component to provide context for the research.
The Academic survey has been issued to all ongoing and sessional architecture academics via Schools of Architecture for administrative ease. Information is not linked to particular Schools – the responses are anonymous and will be aggregated across Australia and New Zealand. The survey is open until 30 November 2018. If you are an ongoing or sessional academic Semester 2 2018 and you haven’t seen the survey – ask your Head of School so you can have your say.

The Architects Accreditation Council of Australia is leading a major study of Architectural Education and the Profession in Australia and New Zealand with the support of all architectural stakeholder organisations in Australia and New Zealand. The Study includes a literature review, collection of data from a range of sources, surveys of the opinions of architecture academics and practitioners, interviews with key stakeholders such as Architect Registration Boards and architectural representative bodies, and focus groups with architecture academics, students, graduates, practitioners and employers.
The Study is expected to report mid-2019.
