Job Ready Program

Program objective

The Job Ready Program (JRP) is a service-based skill evaluation program organized for international student graduates who have completed the degree in Australia or who have studied at and received a completed qualification issued by a Registered Training Organization (RTO). The RTO must be registered under the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS) to deliver the training.

The skill evaluation is performed in order to verify the aptitudes and experience of foreign students.

The global students need 360 hours that means 15 days to execute the first Provisional Skills Assessment (PSA) on their respective JRPs. These 15 days can be an integral part of their total assignments. thus, an international student can finish his/her PSA within the proposed Certificate III, or he/she can do the job as well.

The major criteria for Job Ready Program To apply for a JRP:

The foreign student must have his/her employment agreements permitted by the Trades Recognition Australia (TRA).
The student also has to successfully qualify in the JRWA.
He/she has to provide TRA with standard pay proof for minimum 1725 hours of service in his/her chosen profession on top of at least one year from the student’s Job Ready Employment (JRE) commencement date.

Although till June 30th, 2022 the JRP is going to remain a four‐step service‐based skills evaluation program, from July 1st it is going to convert into a three steps programmes.

Subsequent to this change, new applications for PSA (Provisional Skills Assessment) will not be accepted beyond AEST 4.00pm of 30th June 2022. From 1st July 2022 new JRP applications will start getting accepted for the latest three step process of JRP.

The three step JRP includes:
STEP 1 – The first step is Provisional Skill Assessment (PSA). The criterion for this initial step remains the same.
STEP 2 – The next step of the renewed JRP will be the Job Ready Employment or JRE, as earlier.
STEP 3 – The final and third step of the Job Ready Program Australia is the JRWA OR Job Ready Workplace Assessment.

Things you must do:

If you have not applied for the PSA before July 1st 2022, you will be unable to apply for PSA. You have to apply on or after July 1st under the new three step process JRP.

In case you have applied for a PSA result before July 1st 2022, your request will be accepted and you will receive your PSA results on time.
If you have already got your PSA result before July 1st, your JRP will remain unaffected by this change.

For further enquiry on the effects of this change on a visa application, you need to contact the Home Affairs.


it is imperative that applicants under this program have been the primary visa holder of a Student Visa and have at least 12 months of full work rights available to them to be able to complete the program. This means that if an applicant has previously held a Graduate Visa, they may face difficulties gaining full work rights to be able to complete the program.

How does the program work?

Till 30th June 2022, the JRP Australia was a four-step process that used to take a minimum of 12 months to complete. From 1st of July 2022 the JRP has changed into a three step process that includes PSA or Provisional Skills Assessment, the JRE or Job Ready Employment and the JRWA or Job Ready Workplace Assessment. Applicants must have at least 12 months of full work rights available to them. Usually after graduating with qualifications at Certificate IV, Diploma or Advanced Diploma level student visa holders will utilize this program while moving onto a Graduate Visa. While on the JRP applicants are required to complete 1725 hours of work along with a workplace assessment to confirm they are conducting the required tasks of someone in their occupation.

Three steps of the job ready program are as follows:

➤Step 1 is called the Provisional Skills Assessment and is often used to meet the requirements of a Graduate Visa (subclass 485) under the Graduate Work Stream. The requirements to pass through this step include having recognized Australian qualifications and having completed 360 hours of work experience; either as a vocational placement or paid work.

If your PSA outcome application has been done before1 July 2022, your PSA application procedure will be uninterrupted, and you can expect to receive the PSA outcome by the scheduled time.

If your PSA outcome has already been received before 1 July 2022, the further process through the Job Ready Program will remain unaffected affected.

➤Step 2:  is called Job Ready Employment and is where an initial assessment of current work (and up to 3 months of prior completed paid work) is assessed. If this work is found to be at the appropriate skill level and occupation the hours from this employer will start to be counted towards the overall hours required. To meet the overall hour requirements hours can be counted from more than one employer.

➤Step 3:  is the Job Ready Workplace Assessment (JRWA) and involves an assessor visiting the primary place of work to confirm that the work undertaken is at the level required of the occupation being assessed.

From July 1st 2022 onwards, the fresh applications for JRP Australia will be received and processed for the latest three step procedure of the JRP Australia. This will be done by choosing the Program Registration as well as the Eligibility alternative of the current JRP.
