Assessment of Fitness to Practise (FTP) guidelines within clinical psychology training programmes requires balancing the individual student's right to pursue their vocation of interest and the rights of others with whom that person comes in contact, most especially clients. The past decade has seen an international growth in policies related to formal FTP assessment built into clinical training programmes leading to professional qualifications. We draw on data from a large Australian research project on clinical psychology training in Australia. This national survey of 35 clinical psychology programmes explored views from both clinical directors and clinical students. Recommendations on realistic ways to move forward in this area are offered.
