Are you a skilled worker and wish to offer your professional services overseas, say, in Australia? If yes, this news report is for you!
Plans are afoot to slim down the Australian Skilled Occupation List (SOL). As many as 50-plus jobs may be taken out from the list duly brought together per annum by the concerned officials for the professions that are most expected to require trained specialists from abroad.
Though it has already been reported that the Australian Department of Health is interested in getting several jobs, including GPS, taken away from the list, a much bigger range is actually threatened.
For those not tuned in SOL of Australia duly identifies the professions for immigration to the nation even as it is suitably appraised every year, on the recommendation from the Department of Education and Training, and this in turn takes submissions from bodies and groups throughout the nation.
Looking forward to 2016-2017, at present, there are more than 50 professions on the list for the likely removal, and this comprise barristers, solicitors, health professionals, accountants, among others.
As per a Health Department submission into the evaluation of the SOL, immigration is over and over again employed as a short-term demand administration approach even as it keeps on being rather badly co-ordinated.
In a related development, a spokesman for the Department of Education and Training elucidated that it gets on the evaluation of the SOL every year, and after this several professions are ‘flagged’ for probable elimination in the future.
He stated that usually the need for the flagging of vocations crops up when there is a rising proof of surplus supply in the labour market. The suitability or otherwise of professions, for possible inclusion on the SOL, is accordingly reviewed in a two step procedure.
The Step Number 1 involves identifying professions that are most vulnerable to supply constraints, for instance courtesy the time required to develop the required skills, and/or most possible to necessitate administration interference to address supply restrictions, for instance thanks to the price of a skills dearth.
The Step Number 2 involves evaluating the medium to long term skill requirements of the economy for every specific line-of-work, duly identified in the step one, to decide in case the same would gain from independent skilled movement.
Every Australian state also has a list for the State sponsored visas--the basis of which are the local situations--even as these are compiled utilizing comprehensive labor force study of present skill famines & the potential demand of those particular skills in the future.
The study involves all-embracing industry discussion with associations and industry-associated training councils. The same also considers different other conditions, like the age of the manpower, supply from local & global graduates, and interstate movement.
