Welfare Worker and SA State Sponsorship

There has recently been a change to the ‘Availability Status’ of the occupation of Welfare Worker for SA state sponsorship.  The occupation availability has changed on the State Nominated Occupation List (SNOL). The status has been changed to ‘Medium Availability’. 

This change may be a concern for those who are looking for SA state sponsorship as a Welfare Worker.  The reason for concern is that it is very early in the program year which started from 1 July 2013 and runs to 30 June 2013.  With the downgrade to medium availability, Welfare Worker may at a later time be moved to ‘Low Availability’ and then to ‘DIAC Occupation ceiling met’.  If the DIAC SNOL status changes to ‘DIAC Occupation ceiling met’, then state sponsorship of the occupation for subclass 190 and 489 will stop.

Here are all the Occupations currently listed for Medium Availability on the SNOL:

272613  Welfare Worker               Medium Availability        IELTS 7.0 in each band plus 2 years work experience in field

139914  Quality Assurance Manager        Medium Availability        IELTS 7.0 in each band

224711  Management Consultant             Medium Availability       

225411  Sales Representative (Industrial Products)           Medium Availability

249311  Teacher of English to Speakers of Other Languages          Medium Availability        IELTS 7.0 in each band

311213  Medical Laboratory Technician   Medium Availability

312512  Mechanical Engineering Technician          Medium Availability

Any of the occupation currently listed as Medium Availability may be at risk of reaching the occupational ceiling and sponsorship being closed, during this program year, which ends on 30 June 2014.

What happens when Occupation Ceiling is met?

This is the information that Immigration SA provides on the SNOL classification DIAC occupation ceiling met:

“DIAC National Occupation Ceilings

For the 2013-14 program year DIAC set ceilings for occupational groupings. If a ceiling is met no further invitations can be issued by DIAC for this occupation group until 1 July 2014. For clients with an Expression Of Interest in this occupation group, your Expression Of Interest will remain valid for two years from the date you submitted your Expression Of Interest.

….

Immigration SA will not be accepting applications for occupations that are listed as "DIAC occupation ceiling met."
