TRA review

In September 2007, TRA suspended Skill Pathway (Pathway D) from its Uniform Assessment Criteria following increasing concerns that the claims made in this type of application were fraudulent

 Since the suspension of Pathway D, TRA has undertaken a review of its assessment standards and procedures

 In July 2008, TRA released an exposure draft of its proposed new assessment standards and procedures – The Migration Assessment Policy

 Prior to the release of the exposure draft, TRA sought the views of key stakeholders, the Department of Immigration and Citizenship, ACPET, TDA, and the MIA

 TRA also invited submissions from key stakeholders

Response to the Exposure Draft

  • The main feedback has been in relation to TRA’s 900 hour work experience (employment) requirement
  • Some stakeholders perceive TRA has changed its position on its 900 hours.
  • TRA has always required that the 900 hour ‘work experience’ is in addition to any work experience required of a student in order to successfully achieve a Certificate III
  • Some stakeholders perceive the 900 hour requirement is a slight against institutional based training

Key message

  • The MAP has a much stronger emphasis on an Australian Qualification than the UAC
  • It requires all applicants to provide evidence of formal recognition
  • In some countries mechanisms for achieving formal recognition may be limited
  • This will provide new opportunities for RTOs interested in delivering training and or RPL offshore

Where to from here?

  • Before we release the MAP, we need to make sure we have got it right
  • A second draft will be issued on TRA’s website on

that clarifications issues raised during consultations and submissions

  • We are undertaking further consultations
  • This means there will be a slight delay in implementing the MAP
