Contact Details for Assessing Authorities


The following list includes all current assessing authorities and their contact details. Applicants must contact these assessing authorities to obtain valid skills assessment. The Skilled Occupation List (SOL) instrument lists previous relevant skills assessing authorities in the assessing authority column. A valid (a skills assessment that has not expired) skills assessment from these assessing authorities is still acceptable as evidence of having met the criteria of skills assessment by the department. However, the previous assessing authorities no longer provide skills assessment for occupations listed in the SOL. Notes: National Office of Overseas Skills Recognition (NOOSR) ceased conducting skills assessments for teaching occupations in 2005. Please do not approach NOOSR for a new skills assessment. If you have valid skills assessment certificate issued by NOOSR, please contact NOOSR for advice before lodging your application for skilled migration. Email: meducational.noosr@deewr.gov.au All enquiries regarding obtaining new skills assessments for teaching occupations should be forwarded to the Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership (AITSL), formerly known as Teaching Australia (TA).
