Draft CSOL: JSA's Consultation on Australia's Skilled Occupation List


Jobs Skills Australia (JSA) is tasked with conducting labor market analysis and engaging stakeholders to inform the Government's decision-making process regarding the Core Skills Occupation List (CSOL), which is designed to address Australia's workforce requirements in the temporary skilled migration system.

On March 20, 2024, JSA released the draft CSOL for public consultation. It's important to note that this draft does not represent JSA's final recommendations to the Government, nor does it constitute a governmental decision.

The purpose of releasing the draft CSOL is solely for consultation purposes. The draft list is divided into three categories:

1. Skilled occupations deemed confident by the JSA Migration Model to belong on the CSOL, inviting stakeholder feedback.

2. Skilled occupations suggested by the JSA Migration Model for targeted stakeholder feedback, emphasizing the importance of labor market surveys, independent research, business recruitment experiences, and input from Australian and migrant workers and jobseekers.

3. Skilled occupations suggested by the JSA Migration Model not to be included on the CSOL, allowing stakeholders to provide feedback.

The consultation period extends until May 10, 2024, at 5 pm AEST. Stakeholders can contribute through various means:

- Completing survey questions

- Completing survey questions and submitting additional materials separately

- Uploading separate submissions only

JSA will utilize the information gathered to enhance labour market data and intelligence, informing its advice to the Government regarding the CSOL. Employers and industry stakeholders are encouraged to participate in the consultation process to ensure that JSA receives relevant insights and feedback concerning industries experiencing skill shortages.

To access the draft CSOL and participate in the consultation process, visit the JSA website: Draft Core Skills Occupations List (CSOL) for Consultation | Jobs and Skills Australia.
