The Down Under Centre is proud to have Australian Construction Training Services - Visa Skills Program(ACTS) and Future Skills International(FSI), working out of our centre. ACTS and FSI are Trades Recognition Australia (TRA) Registered Training Organisations (RTO’s).

How do I get my Australian skill assessment?

If you're a skilled worker working in the trades industry such as a Carpenter, Bricklayer, Electricial, Fitter, Joiner or more, we can help! Through being TRA approved these RTO’s have the ability to process your Skills Assessments for migration purposes to Australia. Both ACTS and FSI have offices in the Down Under Centre and a contact number for you to call them 5 days a week 9am to 5pm UK time to discuss your skills assessment for Australia.

The Down Under Centre is located in Ealing Broadway London and is a walk-in Centre, so if you have an Australian skills assessment application you want us to take a look at, go through your documents or even just drop by to pick up some information, please feel free to drop in and one of our trained staff can sit with you. We also offer an Agency Service to assist with your Skills Assessment. The building is designed with private consultation rooms where you can sit with an expert as we examine your application forms or simply run through the skills assessment process.

The Down Under Centre was built for clients and migration agents for the purpose of Australian Skills Assessments. The Centre has its own information room where you can find MARA approved migration agent contact details to make sure you require a skills assessment for the purpose of migration to Australia. We cover the below trades plus many AQF111's in construction, engineering, hospitality, and business fields.

Future Skills International (FSI) - Licensed Trades


AQF III Qualification

An AQF III Qualification is required for specific Trades, so that you can go on further to gain your Trades Skills Assessment from TRA for the purpose of migration.



The Trades listed above are nominated trades in the current Skilled Occupations List.  



The Skills Assessment process can be quite daunting, so for a fee of £250, the Down Under Centre offer an Agency Service which will help you through this process which is important for the Visa to Australia.

As your Agent, an expert member of our team will manage your case directly and assist you throughout the application process. This includes assistance in gathering the evidence needed to complete your portfolio. Evidence is proving you have industry currency, correct wording of references, the correct forms of proof of employment, either self-employed or working for a business and much more. The Skills Assessment to Australia is a mandatory part of the Visa process, we always suggest you speak to a MARA approved migration agent prior to engaging in our services as there is no point having an Australian qualification if you can’t use it for the purpose of migration. Once you have spoken to a registered migration agent they will no doubt advise you to carry on with a skills assessment from a TRA approved skills assessing body.

The Down Under Centre will review your application and submit on your behalf to the TRA approved skills assessment body. As the Down Under Centre is the UK home for ACTS & FSI, our team are very aware of the requirements for a successful application. You will be offered ongoing support and assistance from your agent for the duration of your journey, from the compiling of your Documentary Assessment/Stage 2 Application through to the completion of your practical skills assessment or technical interview. Please see our testimonial page for clients we have helped.

We are also able to offer further assistance throughout your migration process via our industry partners - covering everything from Jobs in Australia, flights, removals, foreign exchange, banking, tax setup and more! Your Agent will work with you from start to finish ensuring you and the family are ready for the big move to Australia.

Future Skills International (FSI)

Future Skills International is an Australian Government approved training organisation that helps electricians get licensed to work in Australia. Our primary purpose is to offer electrical skills assessments for overseas trained electrical tradespeople where applicants are seeking to migrate to Australia or wanting to work in Australia as an electrician. We do this through recognising their formal qualifications from their host country.  If the electrician hasn’t got qualifications we would ask to see a minimum of 7 years' work experience in the electrical field.

Once Future Skills International is satisfied with the applicant’s evidence they will be invited to sit a one day practical assessment delivered from the Down Under Centre in London.  We deliver the practical assessments monthly and make times to suit the client or migration agent if required. We assess 4 electricians a day and assess three days a month. Please see our testimonial page from previous electricians that have used the services of the Down Under Centre and Future Skills International for the electrical skills assessment, mandatory for the purpose of working in Australia as an electrician and migration. Our offices can be contacted 5 days a week UK time on 0203 376 1555.
