Nimble News 15 November 2023

Updating ANZSCO

(the classification of occupations)

The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) is reviewing ANZSCO. These codes inform decisions made at all government levels including industry support, tax breaks, skilled migration lists, apprenticeships, traineeships and more. We are keen for industry to have a say.

Industry can provide feedback to correct issues such as incorrectly described occupations; incorrect skill levels; and occupations that are not yet in ANZSCO.

Several occupations relevant to the Food, Fibre and Timber Industries are under review. Skills Insight (the National Skills Council) has identified relevant occupations by industry on its website.

If you would like to comment you can go directly to the ABS website to make your own submission by 5 Dec, or if you prefer you can provide comments to us for inclusion in our submission via Skills Insight. Email by 21st Nov.
