  2. Advice

    Blake the problem is visas are changing dramatically, something that was easy a couple of years ago is near impossible now. If you fancy being a carpenter or a mechanic then I would highly suggest to do this but in the UK and save yourself thousands. We have a number of members who are taking this approach especially the ones in the medical field.
  3. Advice

    I would really check out this group- personally I have never heard of them. Usually people become apprentices to get into carpentry or attend TAFE colleges. There may be plenty of work around but there are also plenty of young ones looking. Just be very careful and don't part with well earned cash without checking and double checking first!
  4. Advice

    Hi @Blake87 to be honest I agree with @CeltInCaulfield in that the process you mention MAY be possible, but that is a huge MAY. Just recently I heard of someone telling people instead of doing farmwork for their 2nd year visa they should become a student and after their course finished they would be able to stay in Australia permanently. This is terrible advice and could cost people thousands. An estimate of funds required for a 2 year Cert III joinery course and financial requirement is over $60,000 have you got this kind of money available? Are you willing to risk that amount of money?
  5. Advice

    What my situation is is irrelevant. I just don't like seeing people blindly throw money away. If you're aware of the caveats and go ahead anyways, best of luck to you, mate. Please, please, please, please just be aware that you should not count on anything being on a skill list from one year to the next just because 'there is demand'.
  6. Well folks it's decision time..Do it?

    Yes indeed, we were in Perth 18 months ago for a week, so had a good look around the old haunts. Lots of change from the previous time which for me was 2010.

    Both have good reputations - you have to live in their catchment area. Fiona Stanley Hospital is now next to SJOG Murdoch - FSH is huge and SJOG has grown quite substantially too.

    Ah ok. My wife used to work a SJoG Murdoch so we know that area, but can't say we every turned left off the freeway! I keep reading about great schools in Willetton and Rossmoyne as well so we will certainly be looking in that area.

  16. Advice

    No one. I totally understand there is a lot of risk, I am not naive to this. Trades have always been in demand in Australia as far as I am aware and taking an educated stance after reading articles on building sector in Australia and given Australia population is continuing to grow, these people are going to need places to live. Apologies I don't know your situation so are you currently living in Australia and or work in Trades as may know more on this than me.
  17. Sports Thread

    We actually call it 'real football' when speaking to someone who doesn't watch it. We move in circles that love Association Football - my son is at a club that's predominantly Italian now and linked to Juventus - they know what we mean when we say football - nobody assumes we're talking about AFL. In fairness I didn't dislike the game I went to .. but it didn't capture my interest enough to make me go again and we very rarely watch it on TV

    So, who said that those roles would even be available for 189/190 at that time?
  19. Advice

    Hi Celtin, Thanks for your reply and points noted. I would only be obtaining a student visa and then progress on to a temp grad visa which is quite common. Whilst on the Temp grad visa I can embark on the JRP which is basically just to get my skills assessed whilst in Australia and cuts out the need for 3 years post qualification work experience. This will then enable me to apply for the EOI. This EOI will still enable me to then continue to apply for many years it is not a one off. I am not questioning the credibility of the agent as the process is on the government website so is a process I just wondered if anyway has done this and potentially been successful. Thanks
  20. Advice

    Welcome to the forum. Frankly, it sounds utterly reprehensible and irresponsible that an organisation would tout taking a pathway that spans multiple years, only to apply for a 189/190, when the legislation and skills lists change on a very frequent basis. I doubt anyone with any credibility would suggest you embark on a course of action that costs many thousands, spans multiple application years, and depends on rules and lists not changing over a prolonged period. I've never heard of that company, but to be very blunt, I wouldn't even throw sh*t at them, if that's what they're suggesting.

    We all understand how you feel never be easy some of us have been start from 10 years before this waiting game ...there still chances! 1st thing is tryout all possible way n be positive! Be here with you mate!
  22. Advice

    Hi All, New to forum and first post. I am looking at studying a trade (carpentry/Mechanic) in Australia and then hopefully apply and be accepted for Temp Grad visa and embark on the Job ready programme. Following success of this I would then apply for my EOI for 189 or 190 as with all the above I should score around 65/70/75 depending if apply for state nomination and also if study in regional area. I was introduced to this process by Pathway to Aus. Has anybody used them before what was the result? I was wondering if anyone has done the above and been successful or unsuccessful and why? Appreciate there is a lot that can potential fail with this process but without this route would never get above 60 points. Also good to hear from people with Carpentry or Mechanic qualifications who score around same points and have applied for EOI. Do we think these trades will still be in demand for next 5+ years? I have see 2017/18 invitations are only with very high points is this due to the NZ visa backlog and hopefully once this has caught up, invitations will still be obviously highest points but more around the 60/65 mark? Any info is greatly appreciated as don't want to embark on a costly process without having done a lot of homework first. Appreciate I have to way up whether the risk is worth the reward. Thanks
