Flagged Occupations

The Dept of Education & Training have provided the Flagged Occupations for the Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL) for the 2017-18 Migration year.

The suitability of occupations for inclusion on the Skilled Occupations Lists is assessed each year. Occupations are assessed against Australia's need by Identifying occupations that are most susceptible to supply constraints and assessing the medium to long term skill needs of the economy of each of these occupations. To determine if independent skilled migration would be beneficial to Australia. Occupations are added and removed following this procedure.

The following occupations were been flagged as currently being monitored by the department to determine if they still merit inclusion. Therefore, there may be risk of them being removed in the future.
