  1. Hello everyone Please can someone help me with my Skills Assessment applicaton to AITSL. I am a secondary teacher with 3 years experience, I completed my PGCE with a University alongside doing a SCITT with a teacher training organisation at the same time. It was a joint course where the university and the teacher training organisation worked together. I completed my PGCE which consisted of three modules each worth 20 credits and my supervised teaching practice (45 days plus) at a secondary school was completed through the SCITT. I am worried I will not be accepted by the AITSL as my 45 days + surpervised teaching practice was not completed wthin the PGCE but within the SCITT. After checking the AITLS website it says that they require a transcript from the University outlining my supervised teaching practice. I have this from the Teacher Training Organisation who ran my SCITT but not the University who provided the PGCE as they wont provide me with one. Has anyone had any experience of completing their skills assessment witihin the same circumstances or have any advice they can give me? Thanks

    PGCEI and AITSL

    Hi Guys, I have a PGCEI, from the University of Sunderland, which was basically the same as a regular a PGCE course but the 12 week teaching practice was not done in UK, hence was not given QTS. I'm considering migrating to Australia and was wondering whether, PGCEI is recognised by AITSL? even though it doesn't have QTS status, its contend is the same and has more than 45 days of supervised teaching.

    Duration if Aitsl assessment

    Hellos guys, I'm new to this site but I urge some help please. I have applied for a migration assessment with AITSL and my file, as far as I know, had all required documents: bachelor's degree five years, teaching practice certificate 30 days +30 days making 60 in my last year of studies, ietls with the right score and many other letters from uni which I requested to make it clear how uni works here in my country. Also I have sent the syllabus of the the Professional practice since this was a course in the last year. All papers were signed stamped by principals and authorities and all. I even hired a Mara agent to make sure everything was going right. Good money I have spent. Now my question is, it's been nearly 3 weeks and AITSL already sent the mail saying my assessment is now complete. I'll be getting the official outcome next week through the lawyer. My big question is how come THEY TOOK SO LITTLE TIME? IS IT A BAD SIGN?? IS IT STH GOOD?? HAS ANYONE HAD THE RESULTS IN SUCH A VERY SHORT TIME?? PLEASE ID LIKE TO KNOW ABOUT UR EXPERIENCE, I'M GOING CRAZY. I asked a few people and they told me that aitsl usually get in touch with you when sth is wrong or need more explanation. In my case, they haven't even replied to one mail my lawyer sent about the change of director in my uni. I mean my uni assigned another person to be the new director but she could have verify any information too. So we sent an email and they never reply and now they say the outcome is ready. Please help
  4. I'm looking for an experienced agent to speak with to help put together an application with the AITSL.
  5. I have a ProfGCE, which I got through doing the GTP training with a university. The AITSL says on their site the GTP is not accepted, which I thought is definitive however, I've noticed on another forum someone a couple of years ago with a ProfGCE got a positive skills assessment. I wonder if anyone else has managed this and what you had to provide? I have more than 3 years teaching experience and a bachelor's degree. Just not sure about when they say transcripts from ITE as the ProfGCE doesn't have transcripts. Any experience will be really great to hear!
  6. Hi Everyone, I currently live and work in Sydney on a temporary working visa. In addition to that, I am doing a 1 year Graduate Diploma in Education (Early Childhood) from the University of Southern Queensland. The GradDip has 60 days professional supervised practice in it. I was wondering if anyone has done this course/similar course recently and was successful in getting AITSL skills assessment? In the recent years, a lot of Grad Dip programs have been closed down around Australia due to some changes in the teacher registration process so I am a bit worried that I won't be able to get positive outcome. And yeah, I also have a 3 year bachelors degree in business. I'll be glad for any help. Thank you!
  7. Hi everyone, I want to apply for AITSL assessment but my Bachelor's Degree from Spain is a 3 year course. I also have a 2 year pre-university (and post high school) related degree but the fact is that it wasn't taught at uni so I guess it might be consider a VET or Advanced Diploma. I've been working 12 years in the US as a primary and middle school teacher and I didn't have any problem when did the degree equivalence in the US as I was granted a bachelor's degree. Is there any posibility that AITSL accepts my 3 year degree if I show them proof of all my experience? I was even thinking to send them my official credential evaluation report from the US agency that autheticated my transcripts. Sorry guys I guess this is an uncommon scenario but this is my situation. I'm already in Australia with a student visa (my wife is the studying a full Bachelor's degree at uni) and would like to apply for PR so we won't have to pay those extremely high international student fees for the full degree. In case I can't work it our with AITSL I might give NZ a try since from what I've been reading they accept an overseas 3 year degree. Thanks a lot! Cheers! Diego
  8. I am gathering my documents for my skills assessment with AITSL. I have everything except the transcript for my PGCE. I have contacted the University and they do not have a copy in their archives. They have no record of my module results. I do have the PGCE certificate. I qualified in 2001. So there is no way I am will have a copy!!! Help is there any way around this to get my skills assessment done?? I have contacted AITSL be reply yet. thank you sarah

    AITSL

    So... after chasing my PGCE uni for final transcripts they’ve finally admitted they never produced them and have to formulate one due to number of students requesting them, this will take 10 WEEKS- I want to submit and EOI before Christmas! I spoke to AITSL last week before I knew this and they responded with ‘AITSL May consider a statement from the awarding institutions explains why the transcripts are not avaliable.’ Has anyone had a successful assessment with this?
  10. Hello, Just to set the scene... I am a Secondary school teacher working in the UK. I have 10 years of teaching experience, a BSC degree, a PGCE and management experience. I am married to an Australian National and we have three children. We are looking to migrate to Australia within the next six to nine months. Initially I thought that the spouse Visa would be the most suitable, however, after contacting the immigration offices it appears that they are currently taking 10-14 months to process, which is simply too long. So I am now looking into the skilled independent working Visa (189). I am aware that before I can submit the EOI, or complete the Skillselect form, I need to obtain a 'Suitable Skills Assessment' for teaching. So I started to fill out the AITSL form for Secondary school teachers. I can get certified copies of all of the documents they require but I am slightly stumped by the 'Supervised teaching practice' document. This document was not one which was provided by my PGCE course and it seems counter-intuitive to ask for proof of 45 days in-class teaching when I could get my current principal to certify the 10 years worth of teaching!? It seems very strange to me that the form doesn't even ask for current employment status or actual teaching experience. Am I even filling out the correct Visa? Any help or assistance would be greatly appreciated, Tom
  11. I need some help with this, I have a bachelor degree from Australia and now I am doing a graduate diploma in Early childhood teacher in Australia as well, now this course is approved by ACEQUA but it is not on the list of Accredited courses by AITSL. I wondering if I will have a positive assessment from AITSL since I am eligible to get registration to work as an early childhood teacher in Australia. Also, on AITSL's website it says something about Initial Teacher Qualification and I am having a hard time understanding the whole things. Has anyone gone through this? if Yes please help me out since if its not gonna work out Im gonna be wasting $24k for nothing! Cheers

    AITSL Skills Assesment

    I received an email today from AITSL to say that my assessment has ben processed and will be posted to me. It doesn't actually state if it was successful or not, has anybody any experience of this? I kind of expected they would say it was successful or that I would get asked for more information if it wasn't to be successful. any help would be appreciated

    A long shot...

    I’m planning to apply for a 189 as an Early Childhood Teacher (I have a 3 year Early Years undergrad with QTS degree and will finish my MA in Early Childhood Education in August). I can’t submit my info to AITSL until Jan 2018 for my skills assessment, as I won’t receive my MA transcript and certificate until then. I also (randomly) completed 1 year of a BA in English Lit in the 1990s. So, here’s the question: could that 1 year be counted towards the 4 years of university study? If so, I could use that with my undergrad and, rather than waiting until next Jan, I could get my skills assessed and submit an EOI much sooner. I know it’s a long shot and am thinking that I probably can’t count it, as it didn’t result in a qualification (as I dropped out). Just thought I’d ask, as others may have been in the same situation. Thanks ??
  14. Hello! I would like to share my story about the application for my skill assessment with AITSL (Secondary School Teacher). Normally, it \takes 10 weeks to process and I have researched that most of the other applicants received their results in the 10th week. The fastest i could saw was 6 weeks. My case: - AITSL received my application on 11th Dec 2017. - AITSL completed my application on 5th Jan 2018. - Received the mail on 10th Jan 2018. Well.. excluded the Christmas holiday I only waited for 3 weeks to have my application finalised!!! Thanks God!!! I was shocked when i received the email about the completion of my application on the 5th. I wanted to let everyone know that the time frame seems to be quicker I wish you all have a quick result too!

    AITSL Turnaround

    For those interested, our skills assessment was received by AITSL on 07 August, and just had word that the decision will be posted this week. 5 week turnaround much shorter than the 10 expected!

    AITSL Secondary School Teacher

    To those who by chance opened this post, your help is appreciated. I am a graduate of secondary education major in english and have succesfully obtained the necessary score for IELTS. My only question is about the qualification in AITSL where it says: i. ITE ii. Other higher education qualification I studied for four years, where ITE is included plus the supervised teaching but the "ii. Other higher..." confused me. Does this mean I have to get a masters degree? Your help will be needed for this journey I am taking. Thanks a lot.
  17. Hi everyone I am part-way through the aitsl process for secondary teacher and my application is with them. However, they have emailed to request a document I have already sent them - it was an original from my university on headed paper, personally signed and stamped. I was in the position to be able to send an original as I had two copies anyway. The exact info they ask for in the email is contained on the document they have Can anyone clarify whether they accept originals too? I have scoured their site and all it states is that certified and originals are not returned - implying they do accept originals? Confused. Please help.
  18. Hi there Has anyone got their skills assessment back more quickly than 10 weeks from final documents? They have been ultra pedantic about my documents, e.g. After 5 weeks, saying that my Uni docs saying "postgraduate diploma of teaching (secondary) includes 60 days teaching practice" wasn't sufficient to show my teaching practice and asking me for another letter from Uni. I'm already registered with VIT but this doesn't seem to speed it up any. I'm concerned my current visa is due to expire soon and I won't get to lodge my new application in time. Does anyone have any hints or knowledge about getting it processed more quickly or if it sometimes takes less than ten weeks? i have everything else else ready to submit my EOI and just waiting on this...... thanks

    Student visa - help please!!

    Hi all, I am hoping that some of you out there can offer me some advice! I am a qualified Primary school teacher and want to make the move to Oz. I have already been on a whv so that isn't an option for me. Primary teaching isn't on the SOL, so on a whim I applied to AITSL to have my skills assessed as a Pre-Primary teacher. I got a 'not suitable' outcome because my studies didn't have a sufficient focus on the early years. What my plan is now is...... go to Australia on a student visa and do a Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care, to hopefully make up the the deficit in my learning on the early years and then get my skills assessed again and hopefully be able to get a skilled visa! My problem is that I have no idea if this will satisfy AITSL's requirements. They leave their requirements vague and won't give any advice on any courses that will help you meet their requirements because they don't want people doing what I'm trying to do.... Do a course to meet their requirements and then apply for a skilled visa! Does anybody have any idea if a Primary teaching qualification along with a Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care would enable me to meet the requirements of Pre-Primary teaching?? Is the student visa worth a shot or should I give up the Australian dream??? All opinions and advice are greatly appreciated :smile:
  20. This forum has been very beneficial, however I have some questions regarding assessments seeing as how my qualifications were earned in the USA. I'm looking to have my qualifications assessed for Early Childhood Education. I have received my certification in grades K-6 and did my student teaching at a kindergarten age 6. I understand in order to be assessed for Early Childhood Education it is essential that I do my student teaching within such an environment. I am essentially a first year teacher. However AITSL said they do not look at job experience just training and where I did my student teaching. My concern was the teachers program I did was a general program providing the framework and after completion it enabled people to get certified in any area they wanted (so long as they passed the state testing test). From reading the criteria that the AITSL states, they said that my training must be in a discipline specific field of study. My program was general however research based. Where if you were focusing on Early Childhood the workload, feedback, and assignments would be geared in that direction, it would be adjusted if you were focusing on Secondary etc etc. I have a letter from my program director stating that the classes (even though they were general) were focused on Early Childhood because I was doing my training in such an environment. My question, given my circumstances, do you think I stand a chance to receive a positive assessment? Thank You All!

    EOI for secondary school teacher

    Hi, was wondering if anyone could help. I am trying to submit an EOI as a secondary school teacher. However, I'm unsure what to put in the education section. Do I need to put in details of my PGCE or just my degree as that is all I am claiming points for in this section? My PGCE has been recognised by AITSL so does this info need to go in education section as well as skills assessment? Hope this makes sense.

    AITSL advice needed

    Hi all, I am new to the forum posts but have been reading for a considerable time. I have just received a "not suitable" result from AITSL. This decision was based on my degree being a 3 year not 4 year degree. So arising from this I have a myriad of questions some of which shall be put to AITSL directly. I was wondering if anyone here had been through a similar experience though. So my background is that of a secondary Maths teacher having qualified through the 3 year Bachelor of Education route. This is an honours degree. So AITSL are saying I am unsuitable only on the degree length. My questions are as follows: 1) Is there some academic content to my degree that is missing (this may be something only AITSL can answer unless someone here has experience of the same issue) 2) If there is no academic content missing why is the degree classed as unsuitable? Is it seriously just as black and white as 3 years not 4? 3) If it is this black and white issue has anybody every successfully appealed this decision? 4) The biggest I guess is since it would appear I need to do some form of course to increase from 3 to 4 years can anyone make any recommendations based on experience? These can be UK or Australia based since I have family in Australia I could live with during the course of any study. Any help on these initial questions would be gratefully received - I am sure your responses may throw up further questions! Thanks in advance
  23. Well, posted AITSL forms today (teacher skills assessment), so a long wait now until they say yes or no! Their website says 14 weeks........
  24. Hi There, We sent off for the Skills Assessment about twelve weeks ago. We received a confirmation letter after two weeks so I'm guessing the 'counter' starts there. In our confirmation email, we were told that it would be eight weeks until final confirmation but about a two/three weeks ago they emailed saying that one of the certificates was not sufficient and they needed another from my university. I sent that via courier and got it to them three days later. They confirmed safe receipt of this last Monday. I'm just wondering when we're going to receive the Assessment. We're waiting to apply for SS as soon as possible and it just feels like it's taking ages. On their website it states that if they have to ask for more information it could delay our application by up to ten weeks! I'm really hoping that it won't as we have got what they needed very quickly - has anyone got any experience of them 'resetting' the counter so to speak or do they just continue? Thanks for all your help and advice.
  25. Hello, My daughter completed the 3year degree a couple of years ago and now teaches in a secondary school as a chemistry teacher in the UK. She has been accredited by the NSW teaching authority and approved to teach in NSW. Now here is the problem, her accrediation was refused by AITSL as it was on a 3 year degree and the transcripts provided show 440 points and not the 480 points on a traditional 4 year degree. We have provided letters from the uni that this degree is recognized as the equivelant to the traditional 3year chemistry degree and 1 year teaching degree...just that pgce does this in 3 years. Very frustrating seeing all the posts on here showing all the successful pgce entrants when we are having such problems. To make matters worse we are both Australian citizens and my daughter was out here for her year 11/12 and got 96.3% in her HSC. She only went back to the uk to do her degree and get some teaching experince. To make things worse if she had sat around in uk done nothing we would be able to bring her back on a student visa or. Hold visa as a sole defendant, but we can't do that as she is self sufficient and not reliant on us.... Very frustrated, any advice gratefully recieved.
