Hi,

I've submitted a skill assessment application, which included 2 years of internship+Science Research Mentoring Program completed during my graduation and 3 years of employment after I graduated.

However, they didn't consider any period of these first 2 years as skilled employment. They have stated that it is "Not Professional ICT Level Experience".

The "guidelines for applicants" mentions the following:
Internships may be considered if the work is paid and at a
suitable professional level.
I'd like to know what is expected from an internship for it to be considered as Professional ICT Level Experience.

I have 60 days to submit an Appeal application. It'd be waste of time and money?

Maybe this (taken from Page#11 of Skills Assessment Guidelines for Applicants - June 2017.pdf): "Work experience carried out as part of a qualification is not considered for skilled employment."
