Pod - Migration

Migration is the movement of people from one place to another and can be either temporary or permanent. Triggers may be personal and/or professional factors including: a desire to work or study in a different country; a need to move away from dangerous or challenging environments; and an economic necessity to find employment. The migration of skilled people with the required qualifications and attributes can also help governments to address specific skill shortages. The experience of migration can be shaped by many elements including the capabilities of the person, their level of education, the visibility and recognition of their qualifications, and their work experience. Vocational education and training (VET) and adult and community education (ACE) programs assist migrants to develop the skills and confidence required to succeed in their new home.
