    Support with Learning needs

    Great thank you, this is handy to know The fight is the same here currently in the UK it takes a lot of fighting from parents, such a shame as most children with a learning need can achieve if given that extra bit of support, instead my son is labelled as unable to focus...and I'm like but what if he's learning need is stopping him from focussing..help him! So frustrating

    Support with Learning needs

    Thank you for that information. I'm not coming out thinking I'll get lots of help and I am doing my research hence the post. As I said he's going through diagnosis process already so I just wondered what the support was if any once out. If it's none then fine we'll do whatever it takes to get him that privately

    ANMAC skills assessment

    I'm not 100% I need to do one I was diploma trained and then do a post grad degree, it's for APHRA registration so I won't find out till I'm out there. So I will get out there and then go from there

    ANMAC skills assessment

    Hey Thank you, I have done the English test before when we started the process 7 yrs ago (think that certificate has expired now ) I think you are right, just my husband started having a wobble, and like i said, knowing how long the whole process takes it can't expire once the initial process is done. I asked the NMC and they were really helpful they said when I fill out the form for ANMAC and then there's an option for APHRA as well. Though from what I've read you can't register for APHRA until you're out there as it has to be done in person.. I may have misunderstood that though. Will you need to do a bridging course? X
  5. Hi all, Can anyone advise, I've got my IELTS booked, and I have contacted NMC for verification of qualifications. They said once certificate issued it lasts 3 months Is this 3 months to then complete the rest of your skills assessment and once completed that's then valid for longer or 3 months Inc visa application time? I'm sure its the former as I can't see it expiring when visa application can take more than 3 months?? Also has anyone needed to make an AHPRA? How long did the whole process take for you?

    Support with Learning needs

    Thank you, No not yet we're doing our information/evidence gathering at the moment. He is currently in a mainstream school and achieving expected standards, he doesn't get any support at the moment other than handwriting intervention which is given by the classroom support. He struggles sometimes with focus and then sometimes his behaviours are a bit impulsive and excitable but have improved as he gets older, again as no diagnosis he's not on meds and I don't think he'll need them. Whatever it is it is very mild, So I don't think he should cause too much of a worry to the Australian government, I was more interested about the potential dyslexia side of things, if it means I need to pay for private or if that help is there in school already. In the UK once diagnosed he gets extra time in an exam, if he's stuck on a word someone can read it to him, and they get different coloured paper as apparently that helps them too.

    My visa but partner works

    So I'm just wondering, We will be making the application based on my skill set as a nurse, however we will have enough savings that neither of us will need to work straight away, and the ideal scenario would be that my husband is actually the one who gets the full time job, and I would then get part time once I'm happy everyone settled in schools etc. Is that a feasible plan or as the visa applicant do I have to be the working one?

    Support with Learning needs

    Hi all, My son is 7 and I'm the UK we are going through the process of having him assessed for a processing learning need. I think there's a level of ADHD, but having spoken to friends I think he definitely has a processing issue such as dyslexia. My question is in the UK they don't test for dyslexia until 10yrs old. But once diagnosed there's lots of support. And the potential ADHD diagnosis will come soon, and again then the support will be there. Does anyone have a child with additional needs in Aus schools that can comment on the support and the process of gaining diagnosis? What has your experience been? I know we'll have to pay for it, and I've been advised to get whatever diagnosis I can in the UK first. TIA

    The truth on Perth?!

    Thanks @Marisa that's actually really useful to know and add to considerations.

    The truth on Perth?!

    Out of interest, is there this much difference of opinion on the other states? Or is it just Perth that has everyone so divided?

    Agent Fees

    One of them was Andre Burger x

    Agent Fees

    Not sure I've posted in the right section, We've gone to a few agents and the fees really vary, both MARA accredited, one was from this site. One has quoted £1080 pound sterling to do initial searches and then once visa selected the whole process including fees estimate a further £3-5000 The other has quoted $300 Aus dollars to do initial checks and searches but can't give me a price for there after as it depends on what visa option we go for! I feel more drawn to the one who's open with prices as the other I feel will sting me with a massive charge once commited, that's quite a difference in price though it's almost non comparable. Does anyone mind sharing what their agent fees were, and whether there were hidden extras etc?

    The truth on Perth?!

    I didn't no, I got a bit confused how it escalated to Switzerland Thank you for your information on school, though what I meant was probably what you're saying, sport opportunities, outdoor living etc, I'm more interested in life opportunities than education, as in, i want my kids to be happy and success for me isn't measured on how high an education they have. We have contacted two migration agencies who have given us prices, and are both MARA registered. One I found through this site and one I found myself. Hopefully we get the right Visa for us. As I said in my other comment we have a financial back up plan, though hopefully won't need it, but I am wary of coming on the wrong visa and not being able to stay.
