Australia New Trade Assessment Process

Australia has been making accessibility easier for those immigrating with a trade skill

If youre planning to move there, youve probably heard. If you havent, listen up. Over the past 18 months, Australia has been making accessibility easier for those immigrating with a trade skill, which means previous stipulations, such as no entry without qualifications or prior education, is being bypassed for those whom can show demonstrable deftness in their field of expertise.

The Trades Recognition Australia (TRA), which uphold that eligibility for skilled entry is accompanied by formal qualification, not solely work experience, is somewhat being overlooked now for the English and Irish, providing they prove their merit through practical assessment. Past programmes of the same nature have been criticised for their laboriousness and cost, so the relatively new scheme should prove a breath of fresh air for those without degrees, apprenticeships and other such qualification.

The assessment, which is barely 18 months old, will award successful candidates with an Australian Qualification Framework Certificate, which is now widely acknowledged by the TRA. The following is a shortened list of eligible trades: Hairdressing, plastering, carpentry, decorating, roofing, plumbing, and landscaping.

Exclusive to UK applicants, however, are these further trades: electricians, joiners, mechanics, bricklayers, cable jointers, and refrigeration / air conditioning mechanics.

It is a first-time opportunity for those without the formal paperwork and academic experience to capitalise solely on their practical skills. Why not take the assessment today, and see if your business is cut out for the Australian market!
