Skills Priority List (SPL)


Overview

The National Skills Commission (NSC) has responsibility for providing trusted and independent intelligence on Australia’s labour market. A key deliverable for the NSC in this role is the Skills Priority List (SPL).

The SPL provides a detailed view of shortages as well as the future demand for occupations across Australia. This list provides the backbone piece of labour market analysis on occupations that will be a key input to a range of Australian Government policy initiatives, including targeting of skilled migration, apprenticeship incentives and training funding. Noting that each of these measures will also need to consider other inputs relevant to their specific policy needs. Providing a single source of advice on occupations creates a direct line of input for stakeholders and ensures greater consistency and better targeting of resources across the various policy responses implemented by government.

The SPL is reviewed and updated annually and will be published on the NSC website along with any additional reports developed from the analysis of occupations.

SPL Categories

The SPL contains 799 ANZSCO occupations with two indicators:

Current Labour Market

Taking account of all available information, a current labour market rating is determined for each occupation. Ratings are provided nationally, and for each state and territory. Where there is evidence suggesting variation between metropolitan and regional locations this is reflected in the rating. A full list and detailed explanation of the ratings is available in the appendix.

  • Shortage (S): Shortages exist when employers are unable to fill or have considerable difficulty filling vacancies for an occupation, or significant specialised skill needs within that occupation, at current levels of remuneration and conditions of employment, and in reasonably accessible locations.
  • Metropolitan Shortage (M): Shortages, are restricted to metropolitan areas.
  • Regional Shortage (R): Shortages (as defined above) are restricted to regional areas.
  • No Shortage (NS): Research has not identified any significant difficulty filling vacancies.

Future Demand

In addition, each occupation will be given an indicative future demand rating (strong, moderate or soft) to indicate the likely demand for the occupation over the coming five year period using a proportional approach.

Where shortages are restricted to regional areas (Regional Shortage), this is shown as (R) against the occupation, and (M) is shown when shortages are restricted to metropolitan areas (Metropolitan Shortage). Both categories fall under the broader ‘Shortage’ assessment rating.

The SPL provides the following ratings of the current labour market for occupations where sufficient data are available to make an assessment.

Appendix: Occupation Ratings

 

Taking account of all available information, a labour market rating is determined for each occupation.

Ratings are provided nationally, and for each state and territory, where sufficient evidence is available. Where there is evidence suggesting variation between metropolitan and regional locations this is reflected in the rating. The term metropolitan area refers to state and territory capital cities and regional refers to the rest of the state or territory.

An occupation may be assessed as being in shortage even though not all specialisations are in shortage. Similarly, a rating of national shortage does not mean that employers in every geographical location have difficulty recruiting. While an occupation can be considered in shortage, it is still possible that job seekers can face significant competition for positions (due to the level of experience or specialisations required). Similarly, employers can still have difficulty recruiting for occupations that are not in shortage.

Using these two components, each occupation assessed will be categorised into one of six categories.

SPL categories Count of occupations
Current Labour Market Assessment Future Demand Indicator
1 Shortage Strong future demand 57 153
2 Shortage Moderate future demand 87
3 Shortage Soft future demand 9
4 No Shortage Strong future demand 208 646
5 No Shortage Moderate future demand 394
6 No Shortage Soft future demand 44

All occupations will be allocated to one of these categories but will not be further ranked.
