Career Pathways Pilot for Humanitarian Entrants

Career Pathways Pilot for Humanitarian Entrants is a Federal funded initiative that focuses on helping skilled or professional refugees gain formal recognition of their overseas skills or qualifications. It also supports refugees to follow a career pathway that recognises the value of the skills and experiences they bring to Australia. 
The program also includes the provision of financial support to eligible clients to help them with their training, retraining or skills/qualifications recognition.

The pilot will run between July 2017 and 30 June 2019.

To be eligible clients must:

  • arrive in Australia in the past five years through the Humanitarian program
  • hold the following visa subclass: 200, 201, 202, 203 or 204
  • speak English well
  • have a professional qualification or trade skills experience
  • be work ready

A Career Pathway Advisor will work with each participant to:

  • plan a career pathway in Australia
  • show each participant how to use existing skills in the Australian workforce and how to obtain recognition of qualifications
  • find employment opportunities and training to upskill or reskill
  • achieve participant’s career goals
