Welcome to AITSL skills assessment for migration
The Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership (AITSL) provides skills assessment services to teachers who wish to migrate to Australia. As the assessing authority for teacher occupations, we provide a skills assessment to every applicant.
Migrating to a new country takes a lot of work. The links below provide helpful information and documents to guide you through the assessment and migration process.
What is a skills assessment?
A skills assessment determines suitability for an occupation for skilled migration purposes. AITSL is the skills assessing authority for school teacher occupations for Australia’s skilled migration program.
It is one step in the wider skilled migration process administered by the Department of Home Affairs. Occupations subject to skills assessment are listed on the Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL) and the Short-term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL).
A skills assessment is not the same as teacher registration. Please consider speaking to a relevant state or territory registration authority about their requirements.
