21 DecA Migration System for Australia’s Future

Posted on 21 Dec 2022

ELAA made a submission to the Department of Home Affairs to make recommendations on how Australia’s migration system can be improved.

Our recommendations were:

  1. For there to be a priority skilled migration visa exclusively for the care sector. This must include Early
    Childhood Teachers and Educators, aged care and disability workers and healthcare.
  2. Use positive messaging about the future of the care sectors pay improvement as an opportunity to
    increase migrant worker outreach.
  3. Stabilise care sector jobs to improve security and well-being implications for migrant workers.
  4. Expand access to current migrant labour pool including by investing in subsidised training and
    recognising prior learning for migrant workers to be skilled in Australian courses.
