Not sure if anyone can help, but I'm feeling a bit frustrated. I am a dance teacher (private) and run my own ballet school and have for the past 17 years. South Australia has my occupation listed as being eligible for state sponsorship, and I followed a link which took me to a page on the government website stating that it was a degree level application, but that extensive work experience of 5 years + may be taken in place of the degree. Yay thought I, and contacted a migration agent who told me I needed a degree. If this is the case, I'm not suprised they're short of dance teachers as the majority (like myself) have trained in specialised theatre schools and not university's. Any help would be appreciated.
