Submissions have been extended for the 2017-18 SOL update

Thursday 10 November 2016


The closing date for online submissions has been extended to 21 November 2016.

The process of updating the Skilled Occupations List (SOL) for 2017-18 is now underway. As part of this and to help inform its labour market analysis, the Department is seeking expert advice and evidence about the suitability of occupations for inclusion on the SOL. Relevant stakeholders, including representatives of industry, employee, trade and professional organisations are welcome to make a submission from Tuesday 11 October 2016 until Monday 21 November 2016, using the online submission form.  Responding in this format is requested, as it ensures all evidence is provided in a consistent and comparable way across occupations. Attachments can also be added to the online form. Submissions will be published on this website, as soon as possible after the closing date, unless requested otherwise.  

The 2017-18 SOL will come into effect on 1 July 2017.
