As a result of the increase in unemployed workers quantity surveyors and managers in construction as well as social workers (other than social workers for children and families) have been removed from the shortage occupation lists. In addition, the skill threshold has been changed for care assistants and chefs; orchestral musicians, visual effects and computer animation technicians and contemporary dancers have been added; and there have been some additions and deletions of jobs within the healthcare profession.
