Australia NESB Migrant English Test

AUSTRALIA risks excluding talented migrants from non-English-speaking countries if it fails to adopt a flexible approach to language assessment in the skilled migration points test..

…In its submission, the Federation of Ethnic Communities Councils of Australia warns that in order for skilled migrants to be assessed as proficient in English, their literacy levels have to be higher than 40 per cent of the Australian workforce….

….Senator Evans has said that rather than simply focus on plugging skills shortages, the government wants to focus instead on “human capital” and may give greater priority to migrants from prestigious overseas universities….

Meaning international education for Australia is no longer about international development and raising fees from international candidates prepared to study in Australia for residency, but simply poaching candidates already trained with the cost being worn by the (often less developed) source country?
