Changes to VETASSESS Assessment Requirements for General Occupations

vetassess-changesVETASSESS conducts assessments for over 200 occupations for people applying to migrate to Australia under the General Skilled Migration (GSM) and Employer Nomination Schemes (ENS).

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
