11 trades recognition australia ‘assessing your skills’ 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

12 trades recognition australia ‘assessing your skills’ 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

13 trades recognition australia ‘assessing your skills’ 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

14 trades recognition australia ‘assessing your skills’ 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
