Hospitality, Hairdressing and Accounting Still Hot For Skills Shortages
The Australian Federal budget for 2009/10 was announced last night at 7.30pm. The issues related to skilled migration, the nationwide skills shortage and the role of private education institutes within the migration sector were addressed.
The Migration Occupations in Demand List (MODL) lists those occupations and specialisations identified by the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations (DEEWR) that are in short supply.
Currently, the hospitality, hairdressing and accounting sectors are listed on the Migration Occupation in Demand List (MODL). The Australian Government announced that all three of these industries will remain on the MODL in the 2009/10 financial year despite speculation these courses would be removed.
The Australian Government states “The priority arrangements implemented on 1 January 2009 will remain in place for the 2009–10 skilled migration program, which has a cap of 108 100 places. This will ensure that employer-sponsored and government-sponsored visas continue to be fast-tracked and will remain uncapped.”
For international students this means hospitality, hairdressing and accounting remain some of the best course options for international students wanting to obtain part-time work and ultimately permanent residency in Australia.
