When we receive your application form we assess your relevant experience and skills to decide if you are skilled or unskilled in farm and outdoors work.
We then look at your attitude, work ethic and motivation. We need to identify if you are willing to learn, get involved and are prepared to try and work hard. Often this requires us to see what other things you do besides school or college and work.
Together these things help us to establish if you are likely to succeed at work in rural Australia, and therefore whether we can offer you a place in our programme.

If you are assessed as a skilled worker we are very confident that we will be able to find you work here in Australia. you need to be aware that your skills may not be easily recognised here in Australia, and so you may need to build up your experience in lower level roles to prove your abilities.

If we assess you as unskilled then there are more limited opportunities for you. Our assessment of your attitude and work ethic, as well as your performance on the training course become potentially important factors in the work that you
We accept limited numbers of unskilled applicants. If there is strong motivation and clear evidence of being able to apply yourself in a new, challenging and hard working environment then we are likely to accept you.
