Default **STOP PRESS** - Important VETASSESS changes for General Occupations

From the 1st of January 2010, VETASSESS will be changing the requirements for assessment against these “Generalist Occupations” which are managerial, administrative, professional and associate professional occupations.

The new assessment process will help to ensure that applicant’s who meet the requirements under the new process are job ready and have the relevant skills and qualifications for employment in Australia in their nominated occupation.

From 2010, in order to receive a positive assessment, you will need:
  • to hold a qualification which is assessed at the required educational level in a highly relevant field of study to the nominated occupation, and
  • at least one year of relevant employment for all occupations. For some occupations, if your qualification has a shortfall in content relevance either one or two additional years of employment is required.

This is a significant change. The current VETASSESS skills assessment regime for skilled occupations allows for any qualification that is assessed as equivalent to an Australian degree (in the case of 50 point occupations), or an Australian diploma (in the case of 40 point occupations).

The announcement from VETASSESS can be found here: http://www.vetassess.com.au/download...l_with_occ.pdf

This is going to be the first of many such changes being brought into the general skilled migration programme over the coming weeks. A rollercoaster ride for sure!
