    Teachers Moving or Living in Australia

    Hi there just wondering if you would be able to help with my question. Will be moving over next year with husband just qualified as secondary maths teacher. Has he any chance of getting a job on the sunshine coast? Even subbing work? Thanks Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

    Teachers Moving or Living in Australia

    Hi everyone first post here. We have our 189 visa already and it's been activated. Husband is doing a secondary maths pgce in September and we head to oz next summer. Have our hearts set on the sunshine coast. Is it realistic to think he can get work there? Doesn't have to be permanent work, subbing would do. Need to be confident enough that he would get enough subbing to clock up his hours to receive the full teaching registration. All thoughts welcome and appreciated please Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

    How to get PR in NZ with a 189 Oz visa

    Thanks Nemesis. What would that mean for NZ then? How could we stay there permanently? Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

    Is it something you are thinking of doing Wooba? If so can I cask out of curiosity why you are thinking of NZ over Oz and where in NZ? Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

    How to get PR in NZ with a 189 Oz visa

    Hi all. Hope somebody can help me. We have a 189 visa for Oz which has been activated. I'm aware we can go live in New Zealand with this. But does anyone know how that works long term? If we went to NZ instead of Oz would we lose our Oz PR and also how could we stay on in NZ after losing the Oz PR? Hope I've explained that well TIA Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

    Dilemma Oz or UK

    Thanks everyone for all your replies and sorry I don't have time to reply to each and every one of you. Thanks for sharing all your experiences. Maybe I focused too much on the friends thing in my original post. I think my main reason for wanting to go is to have more things to do with the kids during the day as we no longer get out in the evenings. I feel like the UK is very much centred around pubs and now that is no longer an option for us we feel like we are very limited to what we can do and where we can go during the day with our kids. Meeting other families would be an added bonus in Oz. But don't feel like we would be leaving great friends behind as I explained we seem to be on a totally different wave length to your friends since having kids. Our friends work all week and get kids minded at weekend so they can head out. We can't get out because we have no babysitters and if truth be told we don't want that life anymore. (Well once in a while would be nice lol). Maybe I'll wake up tomorrow in 2017 with a clearer mind (wishful thinking lol) Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

    Thanks for the reply. When do you have to make your decision by? Have you got kids? On paper life here sounds good but just doesn't feel right and feel like we are missing an opportunity. On flip side I'm petrified of making the move and struggling Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

    That makes a lot of sense to me what you said. I have said this to my husband that we aren't the norm. Most people move to oz for better wages and a better house etc. We are moving solely for the weather. Did you make the move to and from Oz with kids? Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

    Dilemma Oz or UK

    Thanks for the reply Bungo. Think I'm pinning my hopes on the social life in Oz based on my observations when I was there a few months ago. Families together at play parks and communal areas in estates. But as you say it's not like I can just rock up and force myself on them lol. We do have plenty of friends here but they just aren't as family orientated as us which saddens me. A lot of thinking to do!! Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

    Dilemma Oz or UK

    We have our visa 189 and it's been validated. We just can't decide whether to go or not. We have 3 kids all under 4 and a nice house in a nice Village. But just feel like the lifestyle here doesn't suit us as in none of our friends want to socialise as families they still just want their nights out on the p*ss. We have absolutely no family help so have never had a babysitter and never had any time alone from the kids. We find it a bit lonely and would love a lifestyle where we socialise as a family with other families. Problem with Oz is we would definitely have a lot less money. A similar type house would be about twice the price. If we stay in UK we could afford nice holidays and husband could work part time. What are your thoughts? Is OZ worth the sacrifice of financial security? Is it worth the gamble? Or is the quality of life I'm yearning perhaps right in front me just needing some adjustments?
