How do I get my Australian skill assessment?

If your occupation is on the Skilled Occupations List, we can help with getting your skills assessment for migration to 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 Down Under Centre was built for clients and migration agents for the purpose of Australian Skills Assessments. We cover the below trades plus many AQF III’s for trades and professionals

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 £550 +VAT, 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 Co-ordinator, 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. We have expert migration agents who can advise you on the best visa pathway for your move to Australia. Call us for more at 0203 376 1555

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 TRA Approved Registered Training Organisations, 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.


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.


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

We work closely with Registered Training Organisations to facilitate their Technical Skype interviews and work with clients to ensure that they are ready for their AQF III Qualification.

Please note: Trades Recognition Australia (TRA) assess all the above listed skills for the purposes of migration, once completed you will gain your certificate III in your allotted trade, and then use this to move forward with your Australian Skills Assessment.


A Diploma in Australia is a Level 5 AQF and is required for specific occupations for the purpose of migrating to Australia. We can assist you with obtaining your Diploma for Australia.
