National Panel of Assessors

The National Panel of Assessors is a Federal Government program providing for independent assessment where an individual's physical, intellectual or psychological disability presents a barrier to participation and independence in the workforce.

APM assessors are health professionals who are able to identify interventions to help job seekers overcome their barriers and maximise their ability to work.

APM carries out more than 1500 assessments each year in 78 Employment Service Areas as part of this program.
