What is NAPSA?

The National Association of Prospective Student Advisers (NAPSA) was formed in Sydney in 1989. Members work throughout Australasia in collaboration with school career advisers and guidance officers to promote further education as an option for secondary students and members of the community.

The majority of members are staff of Universities, TAFEs and private colleges who hold roles as schools liaison officers, prospective student advisers, student services officers, managers of external relations units, student recruitment officers, etc.

NAPSA members work pro-actively and cooperatively with one another as well as government, education and training providers, industry and community organisations, to ensure that the information provided to prospective students is accurate, of a high-quality and reflects the diversity of today's higher education environment.

The association also provides a vital network for members and helps to develop an ethos and set of skills for all those working within this industry.
