  4. Hi all, for those like myself rapidly approaching 45yrs old & undecided, take comfort from a reply from Go matilda after my enquiry.... "The age limit for general skilled migration is still 44. It is anticipated that the age threshold will increase to 49 when a new points test is introduced on 01/07/2011" This may give people like me a bit more breathing space....Paul.

    social worker with not enough points ??

    Hi I wonder if anyone can help...i am a qual social worker (2 years) and am finding that I dont have enough points for a 175 visa ( have got 100) as I am 41 . I am getting conflicting info with immi.gov advising that need 12 months work experience in last 24 month. However when doing points test it asks for 3 years experience out of last 4 years. I have looked at the sponsored visa and although less points at 100 they ask for many more years experience. Has anyone come across this or am I looking at this whole thing wrong:mad:
  9. Hi Everyone Are there any Welfare workers out there that can offer me some advice? My OH is currently a Welfare worker ( counsellor) in the UK. We are currently in the process of applying for our State Sponsored (ACT) 176 Permanent Resident Visa. She is ( Ideally!) looking for Sponsorship from an employer in this field of work ( But not essential ! ). Does this sort of thing exist??? If so where should she look? She has looked and looked on the usual recruitment agency sites such as Careerone.au, seek etc for employment opportunities ( not specifcally for sponsorship) and even sent enquiry's to employers themselves that feature on these sites all to no avail. I am wondering why her job appears on the skills shortage list when there appears few jobs that suit her type of work out there? Can anyone point her in the right direction, as to where she should for Jobs or does anybody know anyone in this type of work?? Hope you guys can help. Pottster
  10. Gillard just said it as well as introducing a flood tax - assume this means folk needed for the rebuilding effort. Good news for some??? Added info from Tanner "Can I clarify further that your application has to be a 'DECISION READY' application to qualify for the 5-day processing time. Gillard has also let slipped a few occupations during her questioning time: Bricklayers, tilers and plumbers. So congratulations to all above! (OP - feel free to amend your original post as you did, 'cos people are far less likely to read my post than yours, and will miss out important information)"
  11. Help, we had our application lodged in May 08, had our medicals and Police checks done. I applied as a welfare Worker, did the IELTS the lot now left in limbo. Welfare Worker has been removed from CSL. Welfare Centre Manager is now on there which is what i am. We were told that we should have been given our visa by now. Do i need to submit another application as a welfare centre manager? we are truly gutted about this. Any advice would be great. I have been told that i dont have anyhting to worry about as my application is lodged, we just need a little reassurance. Can anyone help.

  16. Hi, WE are a family looking to move to Oz, we tried in 07/08 but were impacted by the changes to entry to Oz which meant my husbands skills no longer qualified entry. So here we are again this time using my qualifications (didnt have appropiate experience last time), we used an agency last time and lost a bit of money so going alone. Any information would be very much appreciated, I am starting the ball rolling with applying for assessment with the aasw for my qualifications. Maria

    New SOL-Welfare Worker

    I am currently in Australia on a Working Holiday Visa-first year. I have recently looked into having my skills assessed as Welfare Worker to apply for GSM. I understand my occupation most likely will not be on the new SOL. I have not started the process yet, the governing body says skills assessment are taking 10 weeks to process. Is there much point in me going for this? It would give me 2 weeks to get my application in for the 175 (if they allow applications up to 01/07/10. I do not want to waste time and money, I've already had my heart broken here and I've only been here 2 months!! Thanks
  21. :shocked:Hi all this is my first post - I am hoping to get permanent residency via a regional sponsered visa in Western Australia, my nominated occupation will most likley be as a Welfare worker - has anyone already undertaken the assessment under pathway B and if so do you have some tips? I have already contacted the relevant assessing authority for initial advice and they recommended this route given my combination of skills and experience. However another route for me could also be as a Drug and Alcohol worker which carries 10 less points. Both these appear on the Western Australia state skills in demand list. I am interested in other peoples experieces in gaining a positive skills assessment for either of these two occupations and any hurdles problems they faced. The Welfare worker route reminds me of preparing a full NVQ file OMG! (Anyone who has gone through this will know what I mean):biglaugh:
  22. Hi all, could anyone please let me know what the official job title would be for a social support worker. My wife is directly employed by the local government in the UK as a social support worker, her key duties are directly looking after people with severe learning difficulties and physical disabilities. It can also be associated with care in the community. any help or ideas will be greatly appreciated. Thanks Colin
  23. Hi, just wandered if in Oz they had health care assistants or generic workers? Are they known by a different name and would work be easy to find in queensland regarding this? :confused: Look forward to reading your replies Paula x

  25. Hi there, hoping someone can help... I have been trying to find out information about whether it would be possible to get a working visa / make a move to oz and have tried to explore different options though I am not coming up with definative answers so was hoping somebody here would know more than me to see if I am legible I am 34 Brit living in London with my career experience being in marketing & advertising. I have tried the option of getting a family member (auntie resident in perth) to sponsor me, though I have heard that they don't allow this anymore - is this correct? Does anyone have any suggestions how to increase my chances of getting sponsored, what i need to do, is it really tough, and what my overall chances are! really would appreciate some advice, a point in the right direction, i realise that its difficult but I would like to try my best for this... hoping for some advice Thanks
