2021 NATIONAL STANDARD OF COMPETENCY FOR ARCHITECTS (ACTIVE from 2022)
Friday, 6 August 2021
The 2021 NSCA was released on the 1st July 2021 and is the result of the regular five-yearly review. It underpins all assessment processes, including the accreditation of architecture programs leading to registration as an architect in Australia.
The 2021 NSCA sets out a clear roadmap for the development and assessment of competency at key milestones over the course of a career in architecture – from graduation, through the registration process, to ongoing practice after registration. This is inclusive of a
range of practice models and career paths.
The 2021 NSCA has been developed through an 18-month process involving in-depth research and close engagement with stakeholders. The new NSCA will continue to provide the framework for the Architect Registration Board in every state and territory.
