    Graduate Diploma (RPL) - Vetassess Question

    My apologies Its not Get Qualified - The company is Qualify Me - a completely different company and are legit
  2. Hi, I have been living and working in Australia since February 2015. I have, however, been with my current employer since October 2016. My employers would like to sponsor me for PR, but since I have not been with them for 2 years, I require a skills assessment with Vetassess. I have 12 years experience in my role, however I am not degree qualified. I have contacted a company called Get Qualified, and they said my experience can be transitioned/recognised as comparable to a Graduate Diploma - http://qualifyme.edu.au/qualifications/graduate-diploma-of-management-learning/ . This qualification is nationally recognised. This is actually higher than a Bachelor Degree (Undergraduate program). On Vetassess website, it says that in order to get a positive skills assessment, I require a qualification comparable or higher than a Bachelor Degree for my chosen occupation. So, in theory, if I get this qualification, would that be sufficient for a positive assessment?
  3. Thanks so much for your response! So if I were to either get my current company to sponsor me for PR now (or have another employer sponsor me) would that make a difference - will I still need that Bachelor Degree? I was told by someone today that my experience and also the RPL Advance Diploma in Business would be enough if I went through ENS... Is that true? Also will I have to be working for that Employer for the next 2 years?
  4. Bump - Any help would be much appreciated :-)
  5. Hello! And apologies for the long post in advance!(I've also posted in the agent bit, but also wanted to see if anyone has any experience of this and what the outcome was) I'm from the UK but have been living and working as a Recruitment Consultant here in Sydney for 18 months. My company sponsored me, my partner and our child on a 457 Visa however we are keen to get PR as soon as possible just for peace of mind. I understand that I only have to wait another 6 months or so until my company may sponsor me - however, I have recently found out that I'm pregnant (my work do not know this), plus my company have recently refused to sponsor long time employees until they reach 3 years service as people have left as soon as th they got their PR (which they lodged after 2 years service). My question is that will I be able to get PR without formal qualifications? The Info under Recruitment Consultant on Vetassess says I need a Bachelor Degree -I do not have this but have reference letters from all of my jobs in recruitment that span the 11.5 years I have worked in the industry I am in the process of choosing between an Advanced Diploma in Business OR a Diploma in Human Resource Management through RPL - Any thoughts on which would be looked on more favorably would be great too. My De Facto Partner is also a Tradie with nearly 9 years experience (also with no formal qualifications) and he is also looking at getting his experience recognized by RPL. Hopefully this will also help in our application! So will the RPL (in either Business or HR) plus my years of experience, plus the fact I have worked in Australia for the past 18 months be enough for a successful assessment? Thanks:smile:
