    Electrical apprentice

  11. Hi all, I'm new to this site and wondered if anyone could help. My wife and I decided a couple of years ago that we'd like to make the move to Oz but as I work in payroll I decided to retrain and gain a skill which would help us in our move. I am currently finishing my NVQ Level 2 in Performing Engineering Operations and aim to start my City & Guilds 2330 (electrical insatallation) course in September. I have since discovered that when I do qualify as an electrician that I will require at least SEVEN years experience before I would be taken into consideration for a Grade A License in Australia. This means that we'll have to wait another 9/10 years before we can make the move and it be actually worth our while. The only other alternative is to do a 4 year apprenticeship. What I'd like to know is what are the chances of being offered an appreniceship in Australia? I'm aware that there is a Trades Skills Training Visa available which could enable me to do the apprenticeship in Australia but are these oportunities often available to migrants?? Has anyone been in a similar situation or has anyone had any success in gaining an apprenticeship in Australia?? We're looking into various avenues of emigrating to find what is best for us. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks Shane (Ps: I'm 29, my wife Nicki is 28 and we have two boys, Nathan is 4 and Leyton is 17 months old)

    Apprentice Pay?

    Hey everyone i have an apprenticeship in crane mechanics as soon as i get to oz and i was just wondering if anyone knew what a normal apprentice in oz gets paid any information would be helpful Thanks alot :cool:
  15. Hi Everyone My Oh and son 17 have arrived in Melbourne ( I am staying to sell or rent the house) very hard and not entirely a wise move but its done now Well my son has done one year of a bricklaiyning apprenticeship in uk and has NVQ leval one, he is keen to continue this is Melbourne, he loves work ,loves being on site and has exellent refs from the great builder that had him for his first year here in the uk. My husband has a long stay 457 visa and so me and my son are dependants, can work and study in Oz. Have been trying to find out how to get my son taken on as an apprentice there and it seems that either I am not looking in the right place or its hard, he has been given the opportunity to do a 12 month course at TAFE (at a cost) but that starts in Feb and with my OH at work hes gonna get real bored, he is not that thrilled at the moment as it is! Anyone on here got any ideas or had teens that have gone to a tafe or done an apprenticeship in Oz? Any brickies need an apprentice or short term worker? Help would be great xxxx
  16. We are having MAJOR problems trying to obtain a final apprenticeship certificate. My OH doesnt seem to have one. The company he did his apprenticeship with has gone, the training institute has also gone and his college have referred us to someone who issues the final certs but her files do not go back as far as 1998. I have searched the web and rung so many people but still cant get info regarding this. We need proof of panel beating apprenticeship for TRA. We have done a stat dec but worried about it passing as we have no other docs to support it, other than NVQ certs and a National Craft Certificate. (TRA dont recognise NVQ certs as proof of apprentice and City & guilds have confirmed an NVQ can be obtained without doing an apprenticeship. So they wont issue anything to say OH has got it!) :arghh: There must be someone whos had the same. Am I worrying too much?
  17. We're applying for a 175 under my skills as a Registered Nurse. At the moment my OH works in a office, and when we eventually get to Oz he fancies a change of career. He's not really fussed what he does, So my question is....does anyone have any idea what options would be availible for him to get some sort of apprenticeship in Oz? He's 40 years OLD (ha ha!):biglaugh: so are his options limited? Is there an age limit for an apprentice? Any thoughts or ideas whould be appriciated! Thanks Mags:wubclub: x
