Skills Assessment Requirement

Skills Assessment authority for Education Managers nec is Vocational Education and Training Assess (VETASSESS). To have a positive skills assessment, you must meet the following criteria:
- Qualification(s) assessed at Australian Bachelor degree or higher degree with a highly relevant field of study and at least one year of post-qualification highly relevant employment at an appropriate skill level in the last five years.
- For nec occupations, VETASSESS conducts a case-by-case assessment to determine whether the employment can be considered highly relevant to the classification. However, if an applicant’s employment is highly relevant to another ANZSCO occupation, the same period of employment cannot be assessed suitably against an nec classification, regardless of whether the occupation is available for migration purposes or not
- Applicants should provide a cover letter that justifies the rationale for choosing an nec category.
