    Qualifications

    We are in a bit of a dilemma Both my wife and myself are very keen on migration from the UK to Australia, however we are really struggling with the visa minefield. The main issue seem to be around our qualifications. I am a Quantity Surveyor/Estimator, with 5 years’ experience, however I do not have a degree, only an HND (level 5 NVQ) in quantity surveying. I have worked in main contracting and specialist sub-contracting. Along with this I have over 10years operational management experience, again with limited qualifications. My wife is currently working as a Management Accountant for local government, with 6 years’ experience, however only has Accounting Technician Qualifications. We both have extensive and detailed CV’s. The problem we are finding is both our respective professions seem to require a minimum of degree level education with experience accounting for little or nothing. As yet we have not taken any professional advice, this would be our next step If there is anyone out there who has been in a similar position or has any advice, any info would be helpful. Please excuse our naivety as we are very new to the whole process (I have just moved this thread from Migration issues - I think I probably posted it in the wrong Forum...?)
