    Visa processing

    My apologies if this is not the info you are after. Maybe edit your question to include the subclass you are asking about. I was only giving you the information that I know about. Also, even after a state has nominated you, doesn’t your application still end up with Department of Home Affairs? (Correct me if I am wrong on this). State nomination would then still be covered by your general question regarding processing of applications for offshore applicants. I can also see Green above responded in general terms. If you had already applied for a visa and are awaiting a response from DHA it’s a different scenario to waiting for an invite. People might have different pointers for you. That said, editing your original question or clarifying it might get you the responses closer to what you are after. Cheers

    Here is news from Queensland as of 25/03/2020. It is a tough time for everyone with so much up in the air. https://migration.qld.gov.au/

    Impact of Covid-19 on Points

    Oh how we would hope for this. Or at least an intake for those who are onshore, with points in the 80s (maybe?) and who currently have jobs to keep the wheels of the economy moving. Migration will also bring money into their hands as we pay the fees. I know it’s speculation but would be interesting to hear opinions from the RMAs on the ground.

    Working as an English Teacher as a non-native speaker

    Hi @AusDream, I think you could tackle this in a few different ways - from the teacher front and from an immigration side. I’d first join an Australian teacher forum - there’s a couple on FB that you could put into the search terms e.g. Beginning teachers, Australian Secondary teachers [I’m assuming there’s one like this as there’s Australian Prep teachers, Australian Grade 1, Early Years etc.] I’m sure you catch my drift. On these forums you can ask your professional questions and get on the ground feedback. I think also look on the different State education websites and see what sorts of adverts they have for teachers and the requirements expected. Once you’ve established what the requirements are, you can then check that against your qualifications and see where you sit. Next, choose the state you’d like to teach in and see what their teacher registration requirements are. On the immigration front, you can also google AITSL and click on their migration tab. See their requirements for a positive skills assessment. You’ll need this to migrate. Depending on which State you’ve chosen, check what their requirements are for offshore applications for teachers in terms of work experience post qualification. You could also look into a working holiday visa that you can use to come over if you qualify, try and get a teaching job to gain Australian work experience and as a way to scout the industry to see if it’s what you want. As much as your concerns on teaching native English speakers are valid, I really wouldn’t stress too much about this. If you are passionate about your role, relationships with your students will overcome any language issues that may arise. Most times students want to be valued and heard to breakdown these barriers. I am sure I have left out other relevant information but others will chip in as well. Good luck

    NSW 190 Secondary school teacher

    I’m also an ECT. Good to finally find another one as haven’t seen too many around I think secondary is more popular.

    Possibly check on the VETASSESS site as it might be under them.

    Visa application

    I would get in contact with one of the reputable MARA registered agents who post regularly on this site to find out. You don’t want to shoot yourself in the foot nor miss out on a potential opportunity due to lack of knowledge.

    For teachers, AITSL is the best place to start to check what is required to get a positive skills assessment. It takes about 10 weeks from submission to know the outcome. Have a poke around the AITSL site and download the information pack that best suits your circumstances. As for the State sponsored 190, check the specific state’s requirements as they differ. https://www.aitsl.edu.au/migrate-to-australia Migrate to Australia YOU ARE CURRENTLY: HOME MIGRATE TO AUSTRALIA The Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership (AITSL) provides skills assessment services to teachers who wish to migrate to Australia. A skills assessment determines suitability for school teacher occupations for Australia’s skilled migration program.

    Any NSW 190 plumber invitations?

    Are you taking IELTS? If so, try E2 Language even if it’s self study on YouTube. There’s some lessons by one of their guys called Jay who is great. He breaks it down so you understand what is needed and how to get there.

    189 Visa 1 Year of Australian Experience

    I am a teacher as well and the last time I checked with AITSL (I called them before the new system of email only kicked in) they said that to claim Australian work experience one needs to have completed a full year of teaching IN AUSTRALIA at the time of application for the SES to reflect the same. What you’ve quoted above are their minimum requirement for teaching work experience to be considered. Some teaching positions e.g. early childhood teachers teach in a 5 day *a fortnight* government approved Kindy program that would lock them out if the requirement were 38 hours *per week* in the classroom. My thoughts are, send them an email with your inquiry and they’ll respond in a week or so. Tell them what you stated that you’ve worked for 11 weeks etc and see what they say. They’re usually pretty good at clearing things up before you commit the odd $200+ for an SES. Good luck

    Sorry the content I pasted from the Live in Victoria site did not attach properly when viewed on phone. I am also unable to edit it.

    Urgent advice needed re: Ahpra

    Sorry to hear about your predicament but looking at the Live in Melbourne site on state 190 nomination, it does say that the person 'Must have registration (or approval in principle) from the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia.' I will attach a link to the site. Not sure if this is what you read when applying but it might be of some help to you.

    189 Visa 1 Year of Australian Experience

    Hi @BethanLouise88, Do you have a positive skills assessment from AITSL yet? They are in charge of doing your SES (Skilled Employment Statement) that you’d use to claim your work experience. If you have a suitable skills assessment then gather the evidence you require and apply for an SES. Visit their website for the specific requirements. If it’s comes back as positive then Bob’s your uncle. Good luck Forms the AITSL site When can I apply for a Skilled Employment Statement? Applicants who have obtained a Skills Assessment Certificate will be eligible to request a Skilled Employment Statement (SES). Only employment undertaken after the date you have met the AITSL skills assessment qualification criterion will be counted as skilled employment. You can request an SES at any time within the two-year period your Skills Assessment Certificate remains valid. Applicants who do not receive a Skills Assessment Certificate are ineligible to apply for an SES. What type of employment should my application include? AITSL can assess skilled employment that was: completed in any country closely related to your nominated school teacher occupation undertaken within the past 10 years undertaken after the completion of four years of higher education study (including completion of a recognised initial teacher education qualification) undertaken for at least four consecutive weeks and at least 20 hours per week undertaken within a registered school setting or early childhood setting paid employment. What other conditions need to be met? To be eligible for inclusion in an SES application, your employment in Australia must total at least one year. For employment outside Australia, it must total a minimum of three years.
