we changed our name

We were previously known as Navitas Professional and have now changed our name to ACAP Professional Year. 

We continue to be part of the Navitas global education group and the change in name reflects our ongoing commitment to bridging the gap between higher education and successful career outcomes.

ACAP Professional Year is a professional development and education provider that helps tertiary graduates to access work placements, mentoring and training with respected Australian and global businesses. The Professional Year Program enables graduates to develop skills critical to grow their professional careers. 

We deliver the Professional Year Program (PYP) to international Accounting, IT and Engineering graduates. We are the only education provider in Australia to offer the PYP in all three career disciplines in eight locations: Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Darwin, Hobart, Melbourne, Perth, and Sydney. The PYP aims to build industry-specific and employability skills through a combination of coursework and internships.

Professional Year Program

The Professional Year Program is an initiative of the Australian Government Department of Home Affairs to address the skills shortage in Australia and provide graduates with the skills to improve their employability and understanding of the Australian work environment.

Incorporated within the 44 week Professional Year Program is a 12 week internship placement providing practical Australian workplace experience. The Professional Year Program incorporates a choice of IELTS or PTE English language test preparation.

After 14 years delivering quality education to more than 15,000 graduates, the Professional Year Program (PYP) is closing nationally.  We will no longer be accepting applications for the PYP at any of our campus around Australia. ACAP will be supporting all current students enrolled in the PYP to complete their studies. For more information please contact [email protected].
