Workforce Skills Pathways (WS) in Victoria: Hospitality and Early Childhood Teachers

Skills gaps in particular industries within Victoria, are addressed by the Workforce Skills Pathway (WSP).

It is important to note that if an individual is eligible to apply or has been asked to apply under a Workforce Skills Pathway, they do not need to be currently working in a targeted industry sector to be selected to apply for visa nomination (but they do need the qualifications outlined).

Current Workforce Skills Pathways:

  •  Hospitality

To assist the hospitality industry and address labour shortages caused by the coronavirus pandemic, the Victorian Government has established the Hospitality pathway for highly skilled cooks and chefs.

An applicant must be eligible under either the subclass 190 or subclass 491 Victorian visa nomination criteria, and be living and working in Victoria as a cook or chef.

  • Early Childhood Teachers

The Victorian Government is investing almost $5 billion over the decade to deliver Three-Year-Old Kindergarten. This investment will create an additional 6,000 teaching jobs across Victoria.

In partnership with the Department of Education and Training, applications are acceptedns from eligible early childhood teachers for Victorian nominated skilled visas.

An applicant must be eligible under either the subclass 190 or subclass 491 Victorian visa nomination criteria, and be living and working in Victoria as an Early Childhood Teacher. They must also have a relevant skills assessment as an Early Childhood (Pre-primary School) Teacher from the Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership.
