  1. Any Teachers Applying Now?

    Hi, We haven’t been asked for them, I just know some people added references when uploading all their documents to prove employment years they have claimed for.
  2. 190 invitation issued - now feeling terrified?!

    Do you need to sell and ship everything cutting all ties to the uk? We’re taking a sabbatical from work, renting our house and giving it a year to begin with. It’s been much easier for family to accept as they are hoping we’ll be back in 12 months [emoji16] and that way if it doesn’t work out we haven’t lost anything. We’ll come back to the same jobs, same house and had an amazing adventure. Good luck with it all
  3. Teaching in a catholic school

    Thanks. Will look at this
  4. Hi, wondering if anyone can help with this. Do you need to be a practising catholic in order to teach at a catholic school in OZ? I’ve taught in catholic schools over here and it’s not been a problem that I am not catholic, however, I read somewhere that schools wouldn’t employ people out there unless they were practising catholics.
  5. Relief teaching - Brisbane

    Really interested to hear if anyone has answers as these would be really helpful to us too! Good luck
  6. I wouldn’t worry about him being behind when you come back (if you do). If he’s 3 now and you spend a couple of years in oz you’ll be coming back when he’s 5? So he’ll have hardly missed anything. We start kids far too young in school in the uk, enjoy the extra time you have with him, your adventure in oz will be worth a million school days here [emoji16] Sent from my iPhone using PomsinOz
  7. A few questions.. Early Years Teacher

    I may be very wrong so I’m sorry if that’s the case and please ignore this post, but if you’ve done a teaching degree, would you really need to do a PGCE afterwards? Surely a PGCE is for people who have a degree and then want to become a teacher so add the teaching qualification on afterwards. If you’ve done a teaching qualification as your degree, why would you need another? Sent from my iPhone using PomsinOz
  8. 189 Processing ... the wait begins!

    We waited 7 weeks to hear from a co, they then requested medicals and police checks. I’m not sure if that’s the norm though, some people hear a lot sooner Sent from my iPhone using PomsinOz

    It took us 7 weeks to hear from a case officer on our 189 Application so don’t worry, just feels like forever! Sent from my iPhone using PomsinOz

    I think you’ve completely missed the OPs point Sent from my iPhone using PomsinOz
  13. Any Teachers Applying Now?

    I can't really help you there but hopefully someone can! Maybe worth starting a new thread to get more attention. I know you can boost your points with the language test but not sure which section SEN experience would give you more points in unless it's under work experience in Australia?

    I think this is a great attitude to have! Nothing is forever anyway so there's no need to close the door on anything. If nothing more it's experiencing life in a different country. Don't let anyone put you off your story, if this is what you want to do then do it, no one can tell you 'I told you so', this is your experience not theirs. We love where we live at the moment but to be quite honest Great Britain has lost a lot of its greatness for us recently and so we're off on an adventure. If we come back in a year or five years and decided actually the UK is amazing after all, then great! We're all winners; we'll carry on living in our family home, go back to the jobs we've been doing for the last however many years and our kids will continue to grow up here plus they will have had one hell of an adventure to tell their friends about [emoji16] Sent from my iPhone using PomsinOz
  15. 189/190 Visa Applications from July/Aug 17

    I find it all really confusing to be honest. When I emailed to say I had uploaded the documents I got an automated response and in that it said "don't email the department to say you have uploaded documents" [emoji15]doesn't make sense to me. Anyway, fingers firmly crossed we all hear soon and we have grants and then it won't matter [emoji16] good luck all! Sent from my iPhone using PomsinOz
