Glenn, students will continue to scam. After spending a huge sums of borrowed money for their two or three years of studies, and yet unable to get an employer to employ them for 18 months students will revert to scaming with the connivement of complicit employers. WITHOUT experience and not certain the employers' investment of 18 months training will lead to permamncy of both PR status or the student remaining with the employer will not lead to a smooth transition. Where there is a regulatory requirements scams will flourish.

Student will be compelled to compromise their work (industrial realtions) rights just to tolerate the 18 months.Australian students will demand they be given priority in employement with the support of the Union. The Minsiter is now asking for attestations from empl;oyers that they will employ Australians first and spend a good sum of their income to train local Australians. I can see some students paying the tax and creating payslips on behalf of the employers, just to meet the 18 months "genuine" employment like the 900 hours was. And the scam goes on.

I still think the students will not be the main source of skills for the Australian resource driven growth vehicle. Relevant experience with immediately employable skills imported from overseas under 457 (later converted under 856 on a proven basis ) would be the framework for future migration agents.

Ms. Gillard announced today A $ 100 m training plan for our youth.


Thanks Glenn for this info.

Are there details of what sort of training this $100 million is going towards?

I agree Robert. Chris Evans has made no secret of his preference for employers sponsored visas being the way of the future in migration. So one has to question his bringing in the stringent and punitive legislation which is currently in place for 457 sponsors - the changes are not going to be too helpful in promoting his vision which is a pity.

Policy has been high-jacked by the real lefties in government as well as the unions (of course) and while no-one wants or likes to see employees from overseas being exploited (the protection of whom is the explanation the government has given for making the changes), statistically speaking only a handful of employers do the wrong thing. Bringing in such stringent measures is akin to trying to crack an egg with a sledge-hammer! Way too heavy handed and unnecessary. All that was needed in my view was for money and human resources to be thrown by DIAC into monitoring and training of sponsors. Throwing the book at the deliberate baddies and educating those employers who unwittingly do the wrong thing.

The government is now going to have to woo back employers and encourage them to use 457s and the ENS scheme. Interesting time ahead.
