Employability Assessments for migrants

If you have received a successful skills assessment from VETASSESS we may be able to help you gain work in your occupation by providing an Employability Assessment and access to subsidised training.

Employability Assessments for migrants

This program is for people already living in Australia but who are not working at their skill level although they have had a skills assessment in a priority occupation.

Employability Assessments for migrants

At VETASSESS, we can offer this service if you have received a successful VETASSESS skills assessment from 1 January 2012 in one of these occupations:

There are two parts to this offer:

  • A free employability assessment that will help identify if some extra training could help you gain employment in your occupation. This could, for instance, be some literacy or digital skills training.
  • A referral to a training organisation that can help you gain the extra skills. The Australian Government will pay most of the cost.


Check your eligibility

  • You have received a successful skills assessment in a priority occupation from VETASSESS on or after 1 January 2012 and have held it for a minimum of 12 months.
  • You are in paid employment below your skill level at the time of submitting your Application Form.
  • You have worked a minimum of 30 hours per fortnight within the last month. This includes work you have performed with more than one employer.

  • You are on an eligible visa subclass.
