Migration Advisory Committee report: full review of the recommended shortage occupation lists for the UK and Scotland


This is the MAC's sixth review of the shortage occupation lists since the first review in Autumn 2008. As well as updating the lists for both the UK and Scotland respectively, they have considered 2 additional issues. The first related to how a sunset clause may be introduced to ensure the inclusion of occupations and job titles on the shortage occupation list as temporary relief only. The second was how to treat creative occupations in the Tier 2 framework given that the majority of these occupations now fall below the National Qualifications Framework level 6 (NQF6) skill requirement required for Tier 2.
