Job ready Program Applicant Guidelines

The Job Ready Program

Section 1 Program Information

1.1        Introduction to Trades Recognition Australia

Trades Recognition Australia (TRA) is a business unit located within the Australian Government Department of Education, Skills and Employment (the Department). It is the relevant skills assessing authority for nominated occupations under the Migration Regulations 1994.

TRA skills assessments are intended to ensure that a successful applicant is able to perform at the required skill level for their nominated occupation. They also provide an assurance to government and to the individual that their training and experience is relevant and appropriate for the Australian labour market.

TRA operates several different skills assessment services, which are based on an applicant’s occupation, country of passport, where they studied and the type of visa they are seeking.

1.2        Program objective

The Job Ready Program (JRP) is for international student graduates who have studied at and received a completed qualification issued by a Registered Training Organisation (RTO). The RTO must be registered under the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS) to deliver the training.

It is a four‐step employment‐based skills assessment program that provides applicants with the opportunity to demonstrate skills and job readiness in an Australian workplace, relevant to a nominated occupation, before applying for migration in Australia.

The JRP aims to ensure that a skilled worker is well placed to seek employment in their nominated occupation in Australia. The four steps in the JRP are outlined in Section 2 and include:

  1. Provisional Skills Assessment (PSA)
  2. Job Ready Employment (JRE)
  3. Job Ready Workplace Assessment (JRWA)
  4. Job Ready Final Assessment (JRFA)

1.3        Program Guidelines

These Guidelines describe the JRP and outline the requirements for applicants who wish to participate in the program. Following completion of the program, applicants may apply for temporary or permanent migration to Australia.

You must read the eligibility requirements for the JRP before starting an application. If you do not understand any part of the eligibility requirements, please contact TRA via the TRA website www.tradesrecognitionaustralia.gov.au

These Guidelines do not provide specific information on visa or points requirements for migration. All enquiries relating to migration requirements must be directed to the Australian Department of Home Affairs (Home Affairs) (www.homeaffairs.gov.au).

TRA reserves the right to amend these Guidelines as necessary. Information about changes will be documented in the Change History Table in Section 5, and posted as a news item on the TRA website www.tradesrecognitionaustralia.gov.au.

1.4        Before applying for the JRP

Before applying for the JRP, you should contact Home Affairs to ensure you have identified the appropriate visa pathway and check that TRA is listed as the assessing authority for your nominated occupation.

If you are intending to apply for Temporary Graduate Visa (subclass 485), you should also check that your nominated occupation is on the Medium and Long‐term Strategic Skills List on the Home Affairs website www.homeaffairs.gov.au.

Section 2 Program Requirements and Processes

The JRP is a four step employment‐based skills assessment program. To complete the JRP you must complete each of the steps shown in the Diagram 2.

Diagram 2: JRP steps

You should familiarise yourself with the eligibility requirements for each step of the program before you apply. Eligibility requirements must be met and these may differ slightly from Step 1 (PSA) to Step 2 (JRE). For example, TRA does not accept certain visa types for Step 2 of the program. (See section 2.2.1 of the Guidelines)

The following provides detailed information about the requirements of each step of the program.

2.1        Step 1: Provisional Skills Assessment (PSA)

Under PSA, TRA will confirm your identity and verify the authenticity of your Australian qualification, and that you have had exposure to a range of tasks and duties relevant to your nominated occupation in an Australian workplace.

A successful PSA outcome can be used to apply to Home Affairs for a Temporary Graduate visa (subclass 485). A successful PSA outcome is required before you can apply for Step 2 JRE of the JRP.

2.1.1      Eligibility

To be eligible for a PSA you must have:

  • held an international student visa (as the primary visa holder) to study in Australia
  • a qualification relevant to an occupation assessed by TRA, and awarded by a CRICOS RTO as a result of study in Australia
  • evidence of a minimum of 360 hours of employment and/or a vocational placement relevant to your qualification and nominated occupation, completed in an Australian workplace, within the three years prior to submitting a PSA application

2.1.2    Online application process

To apply for the PSA you must register through the TRA Online Portal on the TRA website www.tradesrecognitionaustralia.gov.au. (see section 1.5 of the Guidelines).

You should then select the Provisional Skills Assessment link and follow the guidance to complete the Provisional Skills Assessment application, pay the application fee and upload the application documents listed in section 2.1.3 of the Guidelines. Your application cannot be submitted until all required documents are uploaded on the TRA Online Portal.

2.1.3      Application documents

Your PSA application documents must be uploaded in PDF format and include the following:

  • a copy of the passport identification page of your current If the qualification you are submitting was completed under a different passport, a copy of the passport identification page of your previous passport must also be included;
  • a current passport‐size photograph of you;
  • a copy of your Australian qualification(s) relevant to your nominated occupation;
  • the full academic transcript of results for all of your qualification(s), including the commencement and completion dates of study in Australia; and
  • evidence of a minimum of 360 hours of employment and/or a vocational placement relevant to your qualification and nominated

Employment evidence requirements:

  • copies of pay evidence such as pay slips or payroll printouts to support any periods of claimed employment completed in Australia in the last three years. Pay slips must show the hours worked or the hourly rate of pay.

Subcontracting arrangements may be accepted if it was with a single contractor who can confirm in a written statement the nature of the work you have done, the hours completed, and is accompanied by copies of invoices and bank statements. Invoices must show the hours worked or the hourly rate of pay and be accompanied by bank statements that clearly show the invoiced deposits from the contractor.

  • copies of work statements from your employer/contractor to support claims of any employment undertaken in an Australian workplace in the last three years. The work statement must:
    • be on letterhead used by your employer’s business;
    • state the occupation in which you were employed;
    • state the exact dates and total hours of employment;
    • include a detailed description of the nature and content of the work undertaken, along with the machines, tools and/or equipment used; and
    • be signed and dated by the employer or a person authorised by the employer, including: the name, position and telephone contact details of the person making the statement.

Vocational placement evidence requirements:

  • copies of timesheets or log books to support any periods of claimed vocational placements completed in Australia in the last three years. Timesheets or logbooks must show the hours worked.
  • copies of work statements from the RTO to support your claims of vocational placements completed in Australia in the last three years. Work statements for vocational placements must:
    • be on letterhead used by the RTO;
    • confirm the vocational placement was undertaken as a requirement of a training course;
    • state the exact dates, hours and location of the vocational placement;
    • include a detailed description of the nature and content of the work undertaken along with the machines, tools and/or equipment used; and
    • be signed and dated by an authorised person, including the name, position and telephone contact details of the person making the statement.

All employment and/or vocational placement evidence submitted must total a minimum of 360 hours.

2.1.4      Verification process

Identity verification documents enable TRA to establish who you are and the connection to your qualifications and work experience. Once completed, TRA will then verify the legitimacy and eligibility of your qualifications. TRA will verify employment and vocational placements which may include contacting the person who signed your work statement/s. TRA must be able to link the landline or mobile telephone number/s to the business or RTO. Once a link has been established, TRA will only attempt to contact the signatory three times.

If a link to the business or RTO cannot be established, the signatory will not be contacted.

If the signatory cannot be contacted or does not respond to call back requests from TRA, your work will not be able to be verified and your application will be unsuccessful.

If additional documents are requested by TRA to support your application, these can be uploaded through the TRA Online Portal at any time.

2.1.5      Assessment outcome

You will receive notification of the outcome of your PSA application by email following the assessment and verification process. If your assessment is successful, the outcome letter can be presented to Home Affairs as part of your visa application.

Your application will be successful if TRA is able to verify that your documents provide sufficient evidence to satisfy the PSA eligibility requirements.

Your application will be unsuccessful if:

  • your documents are not relevant to your nominated occupation;
  • your documents contain insufficient detail to satisfy PSA eligibility requirements;
  • TRA cannot verify your qualification or work statement/s; and/or
  • documents are found to contain false or misleading i

PSA applications are generally processed within 90 days of receipt of the application documents. Processing times may vary and are dependent on the volume of applications received as well as the complexity of the verification process.

To support a fair process, your application will be assessed in order of receipt and TRA will not consider any requests to expedite the processing of your application.

2.1.6      Review of an unsuccessful PSA outcome

If you receive an unsuccessful outcome and you do not agree with the outcome, you can apply for a review. You must apply within 45 days from the date of the original assessment outcome letter.

Please note that a review will only reconsider the documents you provided in your original application; no new evidence can be provided. The TRA Review Request form is available on the TRA website www.tradesrecognitionaustralia.gov.au.

The PSA Review fee is payable through the TRA Online Portal by selecting the PSA Review link. Your PSA review will be conducted by a different TRA officer from the one who provided the original assessment outcome. You will be advised by email of the outcome, and if the original assessment is overturned, the review fee will be refunded.

Alternatively, you can submit a new PSA application and new documents and evidence at any time.

A new application for PSA must be submitted through the TRA Online Portal along with payment of the PSA application fee. You will receive a new username, password and TRA Reference number. There is no limit to the number of times you can apply for a PSA.

 

2.2        Step 2: Job Ready Employment (JRE)

Diagram 3 – JRP Steps

The JRE step requires you to complete employment in an Australian workplace to further develop your skills. Employment must be in the occupation, or one closely related to the occupation assessed in your PSA outcome. You must still be working with your employer when you submit your JRE application online.

2.2.1      Eligibility

To be eligible for JRE you must:

  • have received a successful PSA outcome
  • have less than 4 months remaining on your student visa
  • hold or have lodged an application with Home Affairs for a visa that has full (unrestricted) work rights and provides sufficient time to complete Steps 2‐4 of the JRP (a minimum of 12 months)
  • have secured eligible employment (see section 2.9 of the Guidelines)

Please note: A student visa with more than 4 months remaining or a training visa are not accepted visas for this program.

2.2.2      Online application process

To apply for the JRE, you will need to sign in to the TRA Online Portal on the TRA website www.tradesrecognitionaustralia.gov.au with the username and password created for your PSA application.

You should then select the Job Ready Employment link and follow the guidance to complete the Job Ready Employment application, pay the application fee. You will need to upload the application documents listed in section 2.2.3 of the Guidelines. Your application cannot be submitted until all required documents are uploaded on the TRA Online Portal.

Please note: Step 2 and Step 3 (Job Ready Workplace Assessment) of the JRP are employment based and require regular contact between TRA and the JRE applicant. TRA will only communicate directly with the JRE applicant during these steps.

A migration agent or representative can act on behalf of an applicant in Step 1: Provisional Skills Assessment or Step 4: Job Ready Final Assessment. (See section 3.2 of the Guidelines)

2.2.3      Application documents

Your JRE application documents include the following:

  • Employment Verification Report (EVR), signed and dated by your employer and nominated supervisor (See section 2.2.11 and 3.1.1 of the Guidelines)
  • a copy of your current Visa Grant Notification (TRA does not accept VEVO printouts). If you have pending Visa notices these should also be provided.
  • pay evidence that covers your prior employment claim period, if applicable
  • a copy of your passport identification page if you have been issued a new passport since you applied for your PSA.

2.2.4      Decision ready documents

Applications must be decision ready, which means that your application is accurate and complete before submitting to TRA. If all the required information and documentation is not provided to TRA, your application may be made unsuccessful.

If the information contained in the application documents cannot be verified to satisfy TRA requirements, your application may not be approved for JRE.

2.2.5      Additional or change of employer

If you have more than one employer, or change employers during the program, you must submit the employment details through the TRA Online Portal. You do this by selecting Add New Employer under the Job Ready Employment link and completing the online form.

Your employment hours with any additional or new employers will be calculated from the date the employer’s details were submitted online.

There is no JRE application fee payable to register any additional employers for JRE.

You must also complete an EVR for any additional or new employer. EVRs can be accessed from the TRA website www.tradesrecognitionaustralia.gov.au. Please select the form relevant to your occupation. (See section 2.2.11 of the Guidelines)

You cannot exceed five (5) employers, and at least 863 paid work hours must be completed with the one employer.

2.2.6      JRE Start Date

Your JRE Start Date is generally the date you applied through the TRA Online Portal unless the date is varied by TRA. Your JRE Start Date is available in your TRA Online Portal account.

2.2.7      Claiming prior employment

You can claim up to three consecutive months of paid employment that was undertaken immediately prior to applying online for JRE. This can only be claimed at the time of submitting your JRE application online.

To make a claim, you must complete the prior employment section of your JRE online application and provide TRA with acceptable pay evidence for the period being claimed. TRA will assess your claim based on the paid work evidence submitted as part of your JRE application. No additional documentation or clarification will be requested or accepted. (See section 2.2.13 of the Guidelines for acceptable pay evidence)

Prior employment will only be considered where it was:

  • undertaken with the first employer you registered for JRE
  • in your nominated occupation
  • undertaken in the three months immediately prior to your online JRE application
  • not already used to meet the work requirements for your PSA application
  • supported with acceptable pay evidence
  • for employment arrangements approved by TRA

You can claim up to three consecutive months of paid employment that was undertaken immediately prior to applying online for JRE. This can only be claimed at the time of submitting your JRE application.

To make a claim, you must complete the prior employment section of your JRE online application and upload acceptable pay evidence for the period being claimed. TRA will assess your claim based on the paid work evidence submitted with your application. No additional documentation or clarification will be requested or accepted.

A revised JRE Start Date and any approved claimed work hours will be added to the Total Approved Hours table in the TRA Online Portal if your employment is approved by TRA.

Employment verification

A TRA officer will conduct a number of online verification checks to confirm the existence and authenticity of the workplace listed in your application and EVR. Your employer or supervisor may be contacted to confirm your work arrangements, and if deemed necessary, a site visit will be arranged. (See section 2.2.11 of the Guidelines for employment verification)

Skills Progress Report and pay evidence

A Skills Progress Report (SPR) is a self-assessment record of the skills and activities you have undertaken in your workplace as you develop your skills in your occupation. The SPR must be confirmed and signed by the supervisor recorded in your online registration for that workplace.

You will be required to provide a completed SPR after six months from your JRE Start Date, or as required, until you have achieved a successful Job Ready Workplace Assessment (JRWA) (Step 3 of the JRP). TRA will email you when your SPR is due.

SPRs will be provided to the TRA-appointed workplace assessor who conducts your JRWA. Therefore, it is important that your SPRs are an accurate record of the work you undertake in your workplace.

Completed SPRs and corresponding pay evidence must be uploaded in PDF format through the TRA Online Portal Document Uploads link.

SPRs can be accessed from the TRA website www.tradesrecognitionaustralia.gov.au.

Approved work hours

Once your SPR and pay evidence are verified by TRA your work hours will be updated in the Total Approved Hours table on your Home Page in the TRA Online Portal.

Detailed information about the JRE is provided in Section 2.2 of the Guidelines. You must read the Guidelines before submitting a JRE application.

 

Step 3 – Job Ready Workplace Assessment

The purpose of the Job Ready Workplace Assessment (JRWA) is to determine whether you are working at the required skill level in an Australian workplace for your nominated occupation.

An assessor from a TRAapproved RTO will conduct your JRWA and will focus on the activities you have been required to perform during your employment as recorded in your Skills Progress Reports (SPRs) and Employment Verification Reports (EVRs).

TRA will email you when your records indicate you may be eligible for your JRWA.

Eligibility

To be eligible for a JRWA, the following is required:

  • your work arrangements must have been approved by TRA
  • acceptable pay evidence totaling at least 863 hours, over a minimum of six months from your JRE start date
  • acceptable SPRs, EVRs and any other required evidence confirming you are performing the expected tasks and duties for your nominated occupation

If you have a new employer, your work arrangements must be approved by TRA and you must provide pay evidence for at least one month of work before your JRWA arrangements can proceed. (see section 2.2.5 of the Guidelines for change of employer requirements).

Your employer must have signed an EVR and confirmed they agree to the assessment being conducted at your workplace.

How to apply

Once you have received confirmation from TRA that you are eligible for a JRWA, you need to sign into the TRA Online Portal with your username and password. You should then select the Job Ready Workplace Assessment link and complete the Job Ready Workplace Assessment application and pay the mandatory application fee.

When you have completed the online application and your application fee payment has been processed, your JRWA application will be submitted to TRA.

Next steps

When your JRWA application has been registered by TRA, the following will be provided to a TRAapproved RTO:

  • contact details for you and your employer/supervisor
  • a copy of your SPRs, EVRs and any other relevant information
  • a copy of your Australian qualification
  • a copy of your passport identification page.

A TRA-approved registered training organisation will allocate an assessor to conduct your workplace assessment. The assessor will contact you and your employer/supervisor to organise a time and date that is suitable to conduct the assessment.

Detailed information about the JRWA is provided in Section 2.3 of the Job Ready Program Applicant Guidelines (Guidelines). You must read the Guidelines before submitting a JRWA application.

Step 4 – Job Ready Final Assessment

The Job Ready Final Assessment (JRFA) is the final step of the JRP.

TRA will email you when your records indicate you may be eligible for your JRFA.

A successful JRFA provides you with a skills assessment outcome, which can be used to support an application to the Department of Home Affairs for an independent skilled migration visa.

Eligibility

To be eligible to apply for a JRFA you must have:

  • your employment arrangements approved by TRA
  • a successful Job Ready Workplace Assessment outcome (Step 3)
  • provided TRA with pay evidence totaling at least 1725 hours over a minimum of 12 months from your JRE Start Date.

How to apply

Once you have received confirmation from TRA that you are eligible for a JRFA, you need to sign in to the TRA Online Portal with your username and password. You should then select the Job Ready Final Assessment link and complete the Job Ready Final Assessment application and pay the application fee.

When you have completed the online application and your payment has been processed, your JRFA application will be submitted to TRA.

Once your JRFA application is processed by TRA, you will receive a letter by email confirming you have completed all steps of the Job Ready Program and have attained a successful skills assessment in your nominated occupation.

Detailed information about the JRFA is provided in Section 2.4 of the Job Ready Program Applicant Guidelines (Guidelines). You must read the Guidelines before submitting a JFRA application.

ACT Critical Skills List

ACT Critical Skills List August 2020

ACT Critical Skills List August 2020

 

The ACT Critical list has been updated on 11 Jan 2021. Click here to check the updated ACT Critical list

 

The ACT Critical Skills List is used to determine the eligibility for ACT nomination of the following programs:

• Skilled Work Regional (Provisional) subclass 491 visa.

• Skilled Nominated (Permanent) subclass 190 visa.

The Australian Government’s priority for migration in 2020-21 is supporting Australia’s economic and public health response to, and recovery from, the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes an emphasis on migrants who will make productive investments in Australia, create jobs for Australians, provide critical health and medical skills, and support economic productivity.

Under the Territory Migration Agreement, the ACT is allocated a fixed number of nominations each year. The Australian Government has directed that the nominations provided to states and territories are to focus on applicants critical to supporting the COVID-19 response. This includes individuals providing critical or specialist medical services, those with critical skills required to maintain the supply of essential goods and services, and people who deliver services in sectors critical to Australia’s economic recovery.

New guidelines for ACT 491/190 is available here.

Cap on Occupations

The number of ACT nomination places may be capped for each occupation on the ACT Critical Skills List. Invitations may not be issued when the monthly cap for an occupation is reached.

ACT Critical Skills List

ACT Occupation List 2020

New ACT Critical Skill List (Aug 2020) is available

here.

 

About the ACT Occupation List

The Australian Capital Territory (ACT) offers Territory nomination under the following skilled migration streams:

  • Skilled Regional (provisional) subclass 491 visa.
  • Skilled Nominated (permanent) subclass 190 visa.

The ACT Occupation List identifies the skills that are currently in demand in Canberra (for skilled migration purposes). The ACT Occupation List is not linked to specific job vacancies and it is not a guarantee of a job in a nominated occupation. You must be satisfied that there are sufficient employment opportunities in your nominated occupation before you apply for ACT nomination. You will compete for employment vacancies with all people in the labour market as part of a normal selection process. Your success will depend on employer requirements, your relevant skills, your experience and your level of English language ability.

New residents generally do not meet the criteria of employers with employment opportunities that require Australian Citizenship or a security clearance.

 

ACT Occupation List updates

While a major analysis of the demand for occupations will generally be undertaken twice a year, usually in January and July, the demand for each occupation will be reviewed on an ongoing basis. Once it is determined that the demand for an occupation has been met, the occupation will be closed without further notice.

 

ACT Occupation List

Occupation Caveats: The following caveats apply to certain ‘open’ occupations on the ACT Occupation List. If you wish to nominate an ‘open’ occupation but you cannot comply with any ‘caveat’, the occupation is deemed to be ‘closed’.  If your occupation is closed or deemed to be closed, you (or a spouse/ partner) cannot claim Matrix points for an ‘open’ occupation in any category.
** Employment Caveat. Minimum one year ACT employment contract in nominated occupation:

  • with an Australian medium to large enterprise (50 plus employees) located in the ACT; or 
  • an appointment for an academic position at an ACT tertiary institution. 
## Minimum one year employment contract with an ACT employer in the nominated occupation.
^^  Australian Registration or licencing is required
