    AASW

    Has anyone assessed their social work degree with AASW and received positive results.....
  3. Hi everyone, I couldn't wait to share my good news with you all, so after 14 very long weeks I got an email to advise me that I have a positive skills assessment and I have been granted eligibility for membership to the AASW. What a great Christmas present. Now for the IELTS (don't know why) but hey ho. Good luck to everyone for Monday. Gillian :biggrin:
  4. Hello, I'm new on here! I have just booked myself onto an IELTS test date and started getting my paperwork together to get my qualifications accredited by the AASW. Exciting times! I am planning to look for jobs and more importantly a willing sponsor for the 457 visa once I have successfully passed the test and got my letter of eligibility. Are there any social workers or 'allied health' professionals on here who went through it all and perhaps were sponsored by Queensland Health? How long did it take you to get your qualifications assessed? I am a wee bit anxious thinking about the test, I have lived in the UK for 9 years and English is not my first language. I have got the preparation material and looking at the test examples I feel confident to do ok, but then again I have read on other forums about the struggles of people whose first language is English.... Have people managed to score 7 on each section in their first attempt or do I better prepare myself for a series of test sittings? :unsure: Looking forward to read some comments! We're a family of five and as soon as I got a little bit further with my paperwork I will have TONS of questions about schools and living areas. We are hoping to move anywhere up to 2 hours drive away from Brisbane. Any comments on job opportunities in this area? We are open to move either up to two hours drive north or south, I want to be flexible to be more employable. As I said, I am new on here, I think I will spend the next few weeks searching around on here. We're all really excited about the prospect of moving but I do not want to get too excited until I got my qualifications assessed and accepted! Mel

    Pleeasee help!FEW QUERIES OVER THE AASW FORM

    i WROTE TO THE AASW (ops capitals) on 20th April and have heard nothing, time is running out and may even be too late to hear back from them before the July changes.(Trying to avoid doing the IELTS as get the feeling its very difficult) Could some body please help with the questions below; I am completing the AASW form with regards to emmigrating to Australia, and have a few questions that I would like clarifying. 1) Question 15 asks for qualifications. I completed a GNVQ BTEC Advanced Health and Social care in 1995-97. I have put for this not be assessed, due to not having the course breakdown, if it was to be assessed what documents would I have to provide? I only have the units I took (18 units) and if I passed each one (which I did). It also asks for details of field work placements during the above course. I know that I did undertake a placement at a children's nursery but I was not assessed on this placement. I cannot remember where it was or any details about this placement/supervisor/s. What would you advise I put in this section (Q.15A)? 2) My second qualification is BA (Hons) Social Work. - Do I have to give the exact topic/title of my thesis? I have moved and all my Uni stuff is in boxes, am I able to write that it was about Female perpetrators of Domestic Violence and support services available to men. - I do not know what qualifications my practice supervisors within my 3 University placements had, how should i answer this question. - When describing the field work I undertook in the placements, is it enough to write what the services aims were, and what the service offered to clients. Please advise me if this section requires further information. 3) With regard to work history, how much am I expected to write? A paragraph summarising my role or a list of my duties? Thanks In Advance Aymie

I work within Child Protection at present, so this could be quite extensive. Thanks In Advance, Aymie
  7. I am a social worker, completing the AASW form. It is asking for details o the placements I undertook whilst at college in 1995, placements, supervisors names etc! I cant remember what I did on the course to be honest and certainly dont know who my supervisor was. Im not asking to be assessed on this course. What to do? Aymie
