Danger-SignUpdated list of Flagged occupations with chance of being removed from SOL

Australian Workforce and Productivity Agency (AWPA) is the organisation advising department of immigration and border security (DIBP) about Skilled Occupations List (SOL). SOL is an important list to be consider when you want to apply for skilled migration to Australia. It is also important for international students who wants to choose a course in order to be eligible to apply for permanent visa after finishing their study. AWPA has considered labour market, education and training, migration and general economic and demographic data and stakeholder submissions to develop its advice to the Department of Immigration and Border Protection on the 2014 Skilled Occupations List (SOL).  AWPA has also flagged a number of occupations which were borderline in terms of their inclusion on the SOL. These occupations may be removed in future years subject to monitoring of the labour market, education and migration data and evidence from stakeholders in relation to future oversupply issues, migration outcomes and areas of specific need. Below is the updated  list of flagged occupations, currently included on the SOL, that are being monitored for significant changes in labour market conditions:
