Process for Meat Processing (Butcher)AQF III


First, we will make sure you have the skills required to complete this process using a self-assessment eligibility tool and getting your ID verification documents.  If your enrolment is successful, we will then issue your client pack.

To get started, please call the Down Under Centre on 0203 376 1555. 


For the client pack, you are required to prove you have the necessary skills to work as a Meat Processor/Butcher in Australia. You will need to provide evidence that you have been qualified for more than four years and that you have worked in your occupation for a minimum of 12 months out of the last 36 months.

You will be asked to prove this via pay slips, tax records, invoices, bank statements and/ or employment references.

Down Under Centre Agency Service

The Down Under Centre can provide you with an agency service to assist you at this stage as it is considered to be the most difficult stage of your visa application. It pays to make sure you gather the year’s evidence your migration agent requires correctly so that you are not going back and forth to employers. Please call us on 0203 376 1555 to enquire about our agency service and how it can specifically help you.


Once you have gathered all your documentation as a Meat Processor/Butcher, an assessor who works in the same occupation as you will review your application to make sure you fit the requirements for the qualification. They may request further payment information or photos.


The final part of getting your AQF III Qualification is a technical skype interview with an Australian qualified person who works in your occupation. Applicants are required to validate their skills and knowledge during the technical interview.  The assessor will focus on collected evidence, in particular employment history and skills and knowledge, to determine whether the competencies of the Australian Qualification are met. This fee is paid directly to the assessing body.

**Please note that, should you need to cancel/reschedule your interview or fail to bring the correct ID & paperwork on the day, you must pay a fee to re-book your Technical interview.


Upon successful technical interview, your final Certificate in Meat Processing (Butcher) will be issued.
