Changes to Job Ready Program - TRA


Trades Recognition Australia has made changes to the Job Ready Program (JRP).

Electronic lodgement of JRP application documents

TRA will now accept application documents for the JRP by email.

The JRP Participant Guidelines have been updated and provide clear instructions on how to send documents to TRA for each step of the JRP.  If documents are received in a format other than those outlined in the Guidelines, they will be returned unprocessed.

Verification of Work Statements for a Provisional Skills Assessment (PSA)

To apply for a PSA, applicants must provide work statement/s to support a minimum of 360 hours of employment and/or a vocational placement relevant to their qualification and nominated occupation, completed in an Australian workplace.

TRA verifies employment and vocational placements by contacting the person who signed the work statement/s. TRA must be able to link the signatory’s landline or mobile telephone number/s to the business or RTO before contact is made.  Once a link has been established, TRA will only attempt contact three times. If a link to the business or RTO cannot be established, the signatory will not be contacted. If the signatory cannot be contacted or does not respond to call back requests from TRA, the work will not be able to be verified and the application will be unsuccessful.

The JRP Participant Guidelines are available HERE
