Job Ready Program (JRP)

The Job Ready Program (JRP) is for international student graduates who hold an Australian qualification issued by a CRICOS registered training organisation based on studies in Australia.

It is a four-step employment-based skills assessment program that provides you with the opportunity to demonstrate that your skills and job readiness are relevant to your nominated occupation, in an Australian workplace before you apply for migration in Australia.

To apply for the JRP you must first complete a Job Ready Registration through the online portal. You will be prompted to create a username and password which you will need to use to sign in to the online portal to submit an application and payment for each step of the JRP listed below.

  • Step 1 – Provisional Skills Assessment (PSA)
  • Step 2 – Job Ready Employment (JRE)
  • Step 3 – Job Ready Workplace Assessment (JRWA)
  • Step 4 – Job Ready Final Assessment (JRFA)

Please note: You are not formally registered in the JRP until your documents are received (by email) and registered by Trades Recognition Australia (TRA). TRA will acknowledge receipt of valid application documents.

For information about each step of the JRP, including eligibility requirements and application fees, click on the relevant link below. Detailed information about the JRP is provided in the Job Ready Program Applicant Guidelines. You must read the guidelines before registering for the JRP.

You should also check with the Department of Home Affairs before submitting an application to TRA, to ensure a skills assessment outcome under the JRP is suitable for the visa for which you are applying.
