What is Skills Assessment?
Skills assessment is the process of assessing the qualifications and experience against the suitability of the nominated occupation. Qualification assessment involves assessing the educational level of the qualifications as per the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) and determining the relevance of the qualifications for the nominated occupation.
Employment assessment involves determining whether the work experience (in Australia or overseas) is at an appropriate skill level and relevant to the nominated occupation. A positive assessment of both qualifications and experience is required for a successful skills assessment, be it for temporary or permanent migration purposes.
