Job Ready Program Processing Times

The Job Ready Program is experiencing a high number of applications and average processing times are currently longer than expected.

We do not expect this to affect how long it will take to complete the Job Ready Program. Please note the Job Ready Program requires a minimum 12 months of full-time (or part-time equivalent) paid employment.

As at October 2023, the average processing times are:

Job Ready Employment Application:Up to 6 months from online submission date. If you applied for Job Ready Employment before April 2023 and have not received any updates, please TRA
Job Ready Workplace Assessment:Up to 5 months from online submission date. If you applied for a Job Ready Workplace Assessment application after September 2023 the RTO will contact you within 60 days. If you have not been contacted by the Registered Training Organisation within 60 days, please TRA. If you are unable to attend your assessment, please contact your Registered Training Organisation.
Job Ready Final Assessment:Up to 1.5 months from online submission date.
General document processing:Up to 2.5 months from online submission.
