Migrate to Australia

We provide skills assessment services to teachers who wish to migrate to Australia. A skills assessment determines suitability for teacher occupations for Australia’s skilled migration program.

AITSL is currently assessing applications received in January 2023. Processing times can be impacted by the volume and complexity of applications received.

Australia is popular for many things – people, beaches, food and wine, wildlife and its vast landscape. Australia is known as a safe country with a friendly and relaxed culture.

If you are considering moving to Australia to teach, or maybe you are already here, we can help you get started on your teaching journey in Australia.

As a teacher migrating to Australia, on a skilled migrant visa, you are required to complete a teacher skills assessment through us. Not all work visas require a skills assessment so you will need to refer to the Department of Home Affairs for more information.
