Australian Skilled Migration and SOL List Changes in 2014

The Australian Workforce and Productivity Agency (AWPA) flagged a number of occupations which were borderline in terms of their inclusion on the SOL in 2013. This means that these flagged occupations may be removed in future years subject to monitoring of the labour market, education and migration data and evidence from stakeholders in relation to future oversupply issues, migration outcomes and areas of specific need.

Since the SOL may be changed on 1 July 2014, it is possible that any of the “borderline” occupations will be removed from 1 July 2014.

Below is the list of flagged occupations, currently included on the SOL, that are being monitored for significant changes in labour market conditions:

If you are concerned that your occupation may be removed in July 2014, you need to aim to ensure that your application is submitted before 1 July 2014.
