New opportunities for Chefs, Bricklayers and Tilers in Australia

Australia’s Skilled Occupation List will soon be updated to include opportunities for trained chefs, bricklayers, floor and wall tilers to apply for visas without employer sponsorship.

The change is due to a shortage of these skilled workers in the areas of hospitality and construction.  Both industries are projected to experience strong growth in the near future.

Western Australia’s economy goes from strength to strength

Australia’s largest state has currently also got the country’s strongest economy.  The recent mining boom has brought significant amounts of economic growth and people into the state, which in turn will encourage further investment in the future.  When it comes to college study this is great news - vocational courses benefit from close association with industry, so you will benefit increased opportunities to gain work experience in your area of study.

Reagan Ng

Studied Certificate III Locksmithing at NMIT.

Reagan Ng's family has a history of locksmithing, so it was natural for him to want to enter the field too. Reagan says NMIT's Certificate III in Locksmithing is giving him a good overview of the industry and the skills he needs for his part-time work at Amalgamated Locksmiths.

Both Reagan Ng's father and grandfather were locksmiths, but it is not just family tradition that has brought Reagan to the career.
