  1. Thanks for the advice, Gbye grey sky and Andystiz much appreciated! :-)
  2. Thanks for the advice, much appreciated! :-)
  3. We are due to arrive in Adelaide in August. We've had quotations for shipping from PSS and John Mason. Can anyone offer testimonials/recommendations of who they would go with based on your experiences. I have read lots of forum reviews on the subject, but can't find many recent ones for UK to Adelaide. (We plan to go with an independent like Letton Percival for insurance). Many thanks for your help... much appreciated! :-)
  4. Thanks for clarifying! :-)
  5. Thanks for the advice! :-)
  6. Glad you had the secondary option, looks like more studying is the way to go for me!
  7. Thanks for the advice, I'll look into the courses, and seek advice from an RMA.
  8. If that's the case, the course I was considering was a PgCert Autism and Asperger Syndrome, so if I completed that I would potentially meet criteria for Special Needs Teacher?
  9. Thanks for the info :-)
  10. Thanks, your advice/guidance would be really useful. The description quoted is from: http://www.immi.gov.au/Work/Pages/asri/special-education-teachers.aspx
  11. Thanks for your response. Could you tell us the RMA (company and agent) that you dealt with, if you would be happy to recommend them, as it sounds like they may have relevant experience for our circumstances.
  12. Did you get assessed as secondary then like Geordielass44? Just a thought, would my primary PGCE make me eligible for AITSL assessment as Early Childhood Teacher since one of my main teaching placements was in KS1 with children under the age of 8, providing the placement was longer than 45 days?
  13. It seems incredible that with all your SEN qualifications and experience you wouldn't meet criteria for assessment as Special Needs Teacher, this makes me reluctant to do a further year post-graduate SEN qualification, because they don't tend to include teaching practices, so I may end up still not meeting criteria. Great that you had secondary on the SOL to fall back on whereas for me primary is no longer on the SOL. Thanks for sharing your experience though.
