Skills Assessment Pilots – Skills Assessment Opportunities for Migrants
Opportunity for free and fast skills assessment for migrants – from 28 February 2022 until June 2023
Do you have a partner, family member or friend in Australia who is on a family, partner, humanitarian, or refugee visa and is looking to improve their chances of getting a job at their skill level?
Skilled migrants play a vital role in Australia’s workforce. They may be able to get a free and fast-tracked skills assessment if they are on a family, partner, humanitarian, or refugee visa and have experience in a priority occupation.
Skills Assessment Pilots – Skills Assessment Opportunities for Migrants is an Australian Government initiative that offers skilled migrants a fast-tracked way to gain employment in a job where there is strong demand for skilled workers. This will help support Australia’s economic recovery from COVID-19.
A successful skills assessment outcome letter can be used by skilled migrants to support job applications, giving employers confidence that the applicant has the skills needed for working in Australia.
