Australia still needs skilled migrants from UK

The Australian government has announced a major new scheme targeted at increasing its skilled workforce.

However, industry leaders are adamant that the Australian government should maintain its drive to recruit skilled migrants from countries like the UK.

Skilled workers will be able to fast-track to full trade qualifications in as little as 18 months under a government plan to address the growing workforce crisis in the resources sector.

Skills Minister Chris Evans said the government would also provide $200 million for training projects for skills in high demand.

However, Australian Industry Group chief executive Heather Ridout said improving training and apprenticeships wouldn’t be enough, with immigration still vital.

“Immigration programs are essential to delivering skilled workers when and where we need them,” she said in a statement.

    this is utter stupidity. Australian policy makers are living in Jupiter. if they have little sense they will not target people from English speaking develop ed economies, for the simple reason ; well doing professional from UK or canada will not migrate to Australia. if they do so, for what reason? climate? in fact to target skilled workers from these countries they increased the language requirement, so to get a better chance ielts requirement is 7 or 8. i am sure such demand will not be met and Australia going to lose valuable potential assets from developing countries. infact all the developed countries were able to keep their level high by taking migrants from develop countries, for the first time australia is trying new and i am sure its going to cost them a lot

  11. Mae says:

    hi..i always get excited to read news about Australia needs more skilled workers or migrants..I am very much interested to live and work in this country but it seems that Australia is setting too high in terms of their requirements especially for nurses or midwives who wanted to practice their profession..it is so unrealistic to undergo ielts exam with the bandscore of 7 and above in each band. as long as the score in speaking test is 7 or above,with no less than 6 in other bands,Australia will consider it..just like in the US,they will accept this score..you can learn English and even the accent eventually..unlucky for us in the developing countries,it is very hard to get in Australia..hope someone will take a look at this problem….thank you very much.

There are no jobs for migrants here for this profession as you need australian work experience.It would you be better if you apply to the australian companies while you are at your home country. If you succeed only than you may plan
