Vocational Education and Training (VET) Students
From December 2019, the requirements under the Graduate Stream of the State Nomination Migration Program (SNMP) will be extended to include VET graduates (Certificate III and above); and ELICOS graduates.
Graduates who have completed at least two years study in WA at one or more WA education providers studying ELICOS, VET at a registered training organisation or a higher education provider will have the opportunity to be considered under the Graduate Stream.
Other changes to the SNMP Graduate Stream program are a reduction in the work experience and job offer requirements. Graduates will need to either demonstrate six months of work experience or a six month employment contract, but not both. Currently international students need to have 12 months of work experiences plus a job offer for 12 months.
A new Graduate Occupation List and updated eligibility criteria for the Graduate stream will be published on the Migration portal prior to the December invitation round.
