On 10 February 2006, COAG agreed to a new national approach to apprenticeships, training and skills recognition to help alleviate skill shortages currently evident in many parts of the country. COAG decided there was need for a new streamlined system for the recognition of overseas qualifications to make it easier for migrants with skills to work as soon as they reach Australia. This does not mean that there will be a reduction in the quality we expect of those working in Australian. We will still require Australian standards to be met.
