VETASSESS is pleased to announce an agreement with UK NARIC as the chosen agency on behalf of VETASSESS to serve customers based in the United Kingdom and Europe.

January 2020 - UK NARIC (the UK national agency for the recognition and comparison of international qualifications and skills) will provide VETASSESS with support for skills assessment of residents of the UK and Europe who want to migrate to Australia.

This will include supporting new customer enquiries for trades and professional skill assessment through to administrative services in verifying applicants’ employment claims. 

VETASSESS Executive Director Rob Thomason says the partnership will enhance VETASSESS’ service to people who want to bring their skills to Australia.

“Australia’s migrant population has played an important part in the nation’s growth and diversity, and demand for highly-skilled migrants continues to grow,” he said.

“Both VETASSESS and UK NARIC are committed to providing quality independent assessment for individuals, employers and governments.”

UK NARIC Managing Director Paul Norris said: “UK NARIC already delivers qualification comparison and skills mapping services to over 50,000 people a year through our website naric.org.uk, backed by an enquiry and call centre that handled 140,000 communications last year”.

“We are delighted that VETASSESS has recognised the experience and expertise we have, and that now we will be able to extend our support to skilled UK and Europe residents seeking to move to Australia.”
