Skills assessment opportunity for migrants

Skills assessment opportunity for migrants

Opportunity for free and fast skills assessment for migrants – from 28 February 2022 until 29 February 2024.

Do you have a partner, friend or family member in Australia who is looking to improve their chance of getting a job? They may be able to get a free and fast-tracked skills assessment if they are on a permanent family, partner, humanitarian or refugee visa and have experience in a priority occupation.

Migrant Skills Incentives – Skills Assessment Opportunities for Migrants is an Australian Government initiative. The program 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.

Skilled migrants play a vital role in Australia’s workforce. 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.

More information on priority occupations and how to apply is available on the Australian Government Department of Education, Skills and Employment website.
