May 7, 2016 In less than two months, the federal government will release it updated Skilled Occupation List (SOL) for the year 2016-17 which will come into effect on July 1, 2016 . The federal government is currently reviewing its skilled occupations list. The Department of Education is responsible for providing advice to the Minister for Immigration and Border Protection on the composition of the SOL.
This advice is given based on the submissions gathered by the Department of Education that helps identifies the professions and trades that will be in demand in next five years in Australia and also points out professions whose demand is either declining or the demand is being met locally.
While the process of updating the SOL for 2016-17 is currently underway, the submission process for the 2016-17 Skilled Occupations List ran from 1 October 2015 to 13 November 2015.
In total, 115 submissions by industry, employee representatives, trade and professional organisations, and other stakeholders were received which are now being reviewed for the 2016-17 SOL.
