Dairy Australia push for ANZSCO recognition

Dairy Australia has submitted an overseas labour agreement application to the Department of Immigration in a bid to address difficulties accessing overseas workers to fill chronic skilled labour shortages on farms.

Positions are currently not recognised as skilled in the ANZ Standard Certification of Occupation (ANZSCO) list that the Department of Immigration relies on for eligibility for 457 Visas. Labour agreements may offer a solution, as they may allow recruitment of overseas workers with skills equivalent to the NCDEA (National Centre for Dairy Education Australia) certificates II, III, and IV.
