    Just begining

    What qualifications are you studying? Have you checked the requirements for the skills assessment? http://www.acwa.org.au/migration-assessment/guidelines-family-support-worker for most occupations only post qualification experience is counted, so if you haven't yet got the qualifications, you would need to factor in getting the required length of experience after you qualify. You don't mention your age? This could be a factor in whether you qualify or not.
  2. She's also a student, business administrator, Beauty therapist, financial planner. Clearly a woman of many talents! Interesting how their website claims 'transparency' yet doesn't actually show 'real' staff!
  3. They are even using stock images, not even a real person! https://www.bing.com/images/search?view=detailV2&insightstoken=bcid_S2vlLR7Rau8Bxw*ccid_a%2BUtHtFq&form=ANCMS1&iss=VSI&selectedindex=0&id=B8E708FA31B6131E3AEADFD81E5F7531D9F4AD02&ccid=G1Tzj8P%2F&exph=280&expw=280&vt=2&sim=11&simid=608008653247941304&ck=6A4A81BEFF9B365FC8E6734ADACC4A40&thid=OIP.G1Tzj8P_O8XYy6LfY8uzbwAAAA&mediaurl=https%3A%2F%2Fi.pinimg.com%2F280x280_RS%2F84%2F18%2Fd7%2F8418d7a6fc1339265e38824976a4df5d.jpg&pivotparams=insightsToken%3Dbcid_S2vlLR7Rau8BqxcxoNWLuD9SqbotqVTdP-0

    Student Loans chasing me

    Agree with the others. You should have updated your address with them when you moved. I managed to defer my payments as I was under the payment threshold, but if I wasn't I would have paid the required amount. My loan has now been written off, due to the length of time I had it. But if you're working and above the payment threshold then you're liable for it.

    PR Visa from Ireland

    You'll also need to check if your or your partner's occupation is on the skilled list https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/visas/working-in-australia/skill-occupation-list

    subclass 190 PR visa

    School costs aren't 'covered' on a PR visa. Which means you will pay something. Depending on what subjects your son takes the school will charge for them. For example; the school my daughter attends charges around $350 per year for things like newsletters, photocopying, school diary, guest speakers, locker hire etc, then on top of this are the charges per subject, this could be $25 Maths, $150 Food tech, $50 English etc. These charges don't include books either, every year students are issued with a booklist, with what they are required to buy to participate fully in the lesson. So while it's not as much as $5K per year on a temp visa, it isn't free either. Schools are businesses at the end of the day and each student has an 'account', at least they do in VIC anyway :)

    Work visas / permanent residency

    How can he 'bung' in an application for PR? He's already said he doesn't have a skill on the list, any relevant qualifications or experience? How would that work?

    Thinking about the future, any advise

    Firstly check to see if your job is on the list. I entered 'consultant' in the search bar and a few options came up. Not sure if these would apply to you. You need to meet the requirements in order to apply for any visa. From what I've seen and read on this forum employer sponsorship is a difficult route, and probably only temporary, which is something forum members would advise against with a family. I wouldn't really have thought there is a desperate need for recruitment consultants. I regularly browse the job sites, such as Indeed, Seek etc and it's not something I've seen a demand for. Lots of recruitment agencies here in Melbourne and probably plenty of people to fill roles. https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/visas/working-in-australia/skill-occupation-list

    First time Centrelink

    I thought for jobseeker payments there was a 2 year waiting period? It doesn't say what the length of time is on this page but does say you have to meet the residency requirements. https://www.servicesaustralia.gov.au/individuals/services/centrelink/jobseeker-payment/who-can-get-it You'll just have to apply and see if you're eligible

    UK plumber wanting to move on, 189??

    I'm pretty sure you would need a licence in NSW too. Maybe check here: https://www.fairtrading.nsw.gov.au/trades-and-businesses/licensing-and-qualifications/plumbing,-draining-and-gasfitting And I think with the English points, if you're claiming points you have to have taken the test to claim them, just having a UK passport doesn't qualify but hopefully someone more knowledgeable can confirm this.

    Retraining in Aus

    Hi, Not sure if the Access to higher ed diploma would be recognised here? In order to get what's called Credit Transfers, which means you've completed units as part of another course and want to claim a credit for them, the unit code has to be an exact match to the current unit. So I would say that might be difficult from overseas as the units of study won't match the Australian ones. Maybe send enquiries to a couple of SA unis and see what they say? The TAFE course is an option should she not be able to get into uni straight away. It will take her a bit longer than doing just the degree as the Diploma nursing courses as TAFE are usually 18 months, but it's a pathway. If she did a diploma first then went into the degree she would probably go into the second year of the degree and get credits for the first year, which is what usually happens for Bachelor of Nursing. Not sure if this is the same for Midwifery
