The National Skills Needs List

The National Skills Needs List recognises traditional trades that are determined as experiencing a national skills shortage.

The list is based on detailed labour market research and analysis undertaken by the Department of Employment and is updated every six months.
Under the Australian Apprenticeships Incentives Program, an Australian Apprentice undertaking a Certificate III or IV qualification that leads to an occupation listed on the National Skills Needs List may be eligible to attract the following employer incentives and personal benefits.

* Support for Adult Australian Apprentices payments
