Expansion of our assessing authority role
For over 17 years ACWA has been the gazetted assessing authority for skilled workers applying to migrate to Australia under the occupational title of welfare worker, and we are pleased to announce that this role has just been expanded to include three more occupations, namely: welfare centre manager, community worker and youth worker.

Our submission to extend our scope in this area was accepted by the Department of Education and Training and enacted by the Minister for Immigration on July 1 coming into effect immediately.

The guidelines for these occupations can be found on our website under the heading 'migration assessments'.

Each of the eight guidelines come with indicators that will assist the practitioner to identify when the competency has been reached. The guidelines also come with a self-assessment tool to ensure they can be easily translated into daily practice.

A supervisor-supported assessment tool is also available for organisations using the guidelines as part of a performance appraisal framework. Read more
