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.
