    Citizenship interview Birth certificate requirement

    I didn’t upload any evidence regarding parents. I just had to state their names, DOBs etc. I didn’t need to full version for my PR so am a bit shocked that I might need it now when I’ve been here for 5 years+!!!

    Citizenship interview Birth certificate requirement

    I have my interview in a few weeks but only have the short form of my UK birth certificate (doesn't show my parents). Will I be OK with this or do I HAVE to have the full one

    Mount/Glen Waverley

    Hi Another suburbs question I'm afraid. Has anyone lived in either of these places or know what they're like? Are the surrounding suburbs nice or should any be avoided? Thanks for any advice

    Aussie police

    Hi all Just wondered if anyone could me out. My wife and I are permanent residents in Victoria and she is going through the police recruitment process. They want a certificate showing she has no convictions from UK but the only one we can find that might be suitable is the ACPO (ACRO) one that you use to get you visa. The certificate says it is for immigration purposes though. Victoria police haven't got back to us to tell us whether it is suitable or not. I just wondered if anyone has been in a similar situation and knows if this is the right certificate or there is another one we need?? Thanks
  7. Hi I'm moving to just outside Melbourne in October and just wondered how easy it was to rent in Oz. Do estate agents need to see a certain number of payslips before they let you rent or can you just get a property straight away. I have a job over there starting in November so can prove that I have a wage coming in. Also, what's the mortagage situation like? Is it easy to get one - I've seen new build companies offering 97% finance but do these deals really exist? Any advice would be much appreciated :wink:

    Teaching in Victoria

    Hi Donna, Yeah like wolvesaussie has said, you just follow the instructions online and in the section about how much teaching experinece you have you can download another form which is mainly green (it might be called form B but can't remember) if you want to apply for full registration. Then your headmaster fills it in for you and you sent it off along with your certified documents (which your headmaster can also certify). If I can do it then it must be straight forward but let me know if you need any more help!!

    Teaching in Victoria

    Hi just to let you guys know that I am a teacher from UK and was granted full registration last week by VIT. It only took about 3 weeks to come through so if you have enough experience (my boss just had to complete a form stating that I met their teaching standards) then you will get full not provisional registration as some people have been stating.

    Teaching in Victoria

    Hi I teach Science and am moving to Victoria in November. I got my visa in February and got a job in a private school (interview in London) in April. It was the first one I applied for!! I can't speak for other subjects but I found it quite easy to find a job. I think they like UK teachers and emphasise any work you've done on developing curricula.

    Maths teacher job prospects???

    It shouldn't pose a problem - just state that what you have taught is the equivalent A level but a maths teacher (I'm Science) may be able to offer more help. I would definitely stress the similarity of what you have taught to the Aus curriculum too. I did my IELTS and got level 8.5 overall. For a morning's work it's an easy way to get a lot of extra points for you visa application. My advise, therefore, would be to do it.

    Teaching in Ballarat

    Hi Sahara Yeah I bet it is the same school!! I'm due to start 2014 so have a bit of time to find a place to live etc. House prices don't seem as ridiculous as they are in Melbourne so hopefully I'll be able to get something nice. Are there plenty of things to do in Ballarat? It seems like a nice place.
