    Dependant child aged 18?

    Hi everyone, If anyone could offer me some advice it would be very much appreciated. We are hoping to move to Perth in the not too distant future, but due to being 5 points short for a permanent visa we would unfortunately need to apply for a 457 T/V with a view to applying for the 887 P/V after 2 yrs. We have a daughter who will be 18 when we apply who would apparently therefore need to be in full time education to be able to be included on our visa due to her age? We have looked into a full time college course that interests her but she has also been offered the same qualification but as an apprenticeship which she would get a small wage for; £350 p/m. She would still be living at home and obviously would be dependant on us still on such a low wage. Therefore my question is... although this apprenticeship wouldn't be classed as being in full time education, as most of her week would be hands on in placement, it is still a learner course so would this still make her eligible to be on our visa? Sorry to make it long winded but thought I need to properly explain my circumstances. Thank you in advance.
  2. Hi All, Im in the situation where as my employer has offered me a full time apprenticeship with them so i can get my certificates over here (as i am classed as an unskilled laborer.) The problem is that im currently on a bridging visa A as i am awaiting the outcome of my partner visa application. I've contacted immi about this via email and they have stated that since im on a BVA, im entitled to work and study as much as i like so yes, its possible. But i know better than to trust immi lol. I was under the impression that you needed to at least have the 820 temp visa to have access to government funding for the apprenticeship? This is all just assumption and i cant find anything about it on the web, and my employer has never done this with someone on a BV, so its all new to the both of us. Any and all help would be much appreciated. Cheers!
  3. Hi Guys, I have my cousin who applied for 190 EOI with – age 25 - points 30, AQF III Points 10, State nomination point 5, Work Exp 8 plus years point 15 altogether 60 :cool: However his 8 years are including 3 years of Full Term Apprenticeship :mad: My concern is whether time served as apprentice counted towards work experience As Full Term apprenticeship is a delivered on “On Job Training” model, this should be counted as relevant work experience. He has been asked to provide evidence that he reached the required skill level prior to completing the qualification and are therefore eligible to claim points for this work experience. How to overcome this one? Pl help
  4. Hello everyone!! I'm new in this forum and I hope to find useful information from it. I was looking information about TRA assessment, because I don't understand a couple of things about it, all over the threads but I couldn't find exactly what I need. This is the situation: I want to apply for the "Electronic Equipment trades worker" assessment. I did an apprenticeship for 5 years and 3 month, working in a University Electronic Laboratory. Then I worked 1 year and 7 month in an Electronic Security company, and now I've been working for 6 years and 7 month in another Electronic Security company. I have all the employer letters to confirm all my statements, but the problem is that I don't have any "certificate" for the apprenticeship I did. My letter says that work was under an apprenticeship program, but without the certificate I feel my application may be refused. In addition, I have 2 years and a half of Bachelor in electronic engineering (I didn't finish it). Does anyone know if I can apply in my situation? How could I complete the different blanks on the assessment form? I hope somebody can help me on this because I really want to move to OZ and I'm a bit frustrated... Thanks in advance!!! Nicko
  5. Hi, I am 28 years old looking for work experience in Refrigeration and/or Air conditioning. I am here with my wife in Melbourne and I am studying Refrigeration and Air conditioning as a mature student. the course is only on a Wednesday to Friday so available any other time. I require 400 hours to pass to the course then 900 hours for TRA. I am happy to travel and to even travel to other cities during term breaks. If anybody is looking for a trainee please contact me thanks Jim Harrop 0416 003282 jim.harrop@hotmail.com
  6. My apprenticeship is coming to an end in the coming months, and recently going to Sydney/Melbourne on a 3 week holiday, I've got the bug to get back out there and make something of it. I've just turned 21, halfway through my 4th year Mechanical engineering apprenticeship working on all aspects of lift engineering/installation. I'm still undecided in what route to take, backpacking way (which I've kind of done) or the sponsor way, and settling down in the one place and finding my feet soon as. Advice? Im still yet to go through the migration and visa process, but once that's sorted in the new year, does anyone know what the lift industry is like down under? It's not just lift's I'd be interested in, I'd consider other engineering jobs. Any advice and information would be grateful, thanks. Jack.

    apprenticeship

    Hi all, we're moving to mandurah 1st dec and my son would like to find something as an apprentice mechanic, could someone plz let me know how to go about this. Can he apply to employers like here in uk or does it work differently in Australia and is there plenty out there for the recent school leavers. Any help would be much appreciated. If he can't find something he will just carry on with further education any ideas on costs for college etc? Alison.:confused:

    Apprenticeship on a 457 Visa

    Can a dependent of a 457 visa apply for an apprenticeship
  9. Hi all Just thought I pick all your wonderful brains. Basically we went to Perth about 10 years ago & fell in love with the place, my o/h decided this is the place he wanted to live/work etc. At the time he was a supervisior in a call centre & obviously that would not of enabled us to get out to Aus, so we went to a trade fair & found out that if he trained as an Electrician or any trade he would need to gain qualifications & then work experience. This is what he did, we paid £££££ for him to go to college, 1 day aweek for 4-5 years to qualify as a sparky. We then had the problem of getting him a job, as a mature student with no apprenticeship behind him this wasnt easy, but he/we persevered & managed to get him a job alongside a sparky, basically within a year or so he was doing all jobs on his on (although this was only domestic work) he has never done industrial work & a small amount of commerical electrical work. Now with the new points system coming in, our dream would appear to have come to an end. My question is should we have time to apply before the change in July, would this still be a major problem as he in un-apprenticeship trained? Was going to go via the ss route. Feel like this has been a total waste of time. :arghh: Being that he is going to be 41 this year & the fact that he failed the Tradeset test so is now in 2 minds to sit the AM2 course, do you even think its worth doing the AM2 incase the age limit changes in the future & if the July changes dont work out for the AUS Government & they change their minds with regards to Degree's, apprenticeships etc?:unsure: Any advice would be fab & many thanks in advance
  10. MODS please remove my duplicate thread in Western Australia and not this one please. Hiya, I did an informal apprenticeship via YTS in the 80's day release to obtain City & Guild part 2 and part 3, with part 1 being an equivalent under a different body. I did 4 years (part 2 took two years to do). I was'nt under the EITB board as some others at other companies were. But TRA pathway B states 5 years training. Am I out of this? Or can I point to the fact I've always been on a skilled rate in this country? Am applying under 716 route, but WA want 7 years out of last ten but I was in fulltime education around 7 years ago. Then in maintenance fitting for 2 years and not machining which I've been in sine then. Should I go for SA and simply slip in to WA? Or would employer sponsorship be my only hope? I appreciate my first problem of four year apprenticeship will be seen as informal and therefore incomplete? Thanks for any advice, doing the TRA isn't a problem as I'd like to know if Oz is going to be or not.

  14. Hi all I have sat down today and started to piece together my step daughters TRA application. We have decided to go down pathway B which requires her to have a 5 year informal apprenticeship. She started college to study for her NVQ level 2 in hairdressing in September 2004. The first year was a combined hair/beautician course. She carried out 6 hours a week in hairdressing tuition that first year. In September 2005 the beauty stuff was dropped and she was solely being taught hair. In May 2005 she was offered a saturday job in a salon at the place where she had a college placement once a week. In October 2005 she left college and went to work at that salon as a salon junior and the boss paid for her to carry on her NVQ level 2 at a private college. He gave her tuition as well. Once that was completed she went on to complete her NVQ level 3 in hairdressing.She is still at that salon as senior stylist. My question is this: She started hairdressing training in September 2004 with the college but she started at a salon in May 2005 where she recieved on the job training whilst attending another college to get the recognised qualifications. Has she completed a 5 year informal apprenticeship or does she have to wait till May 2010 to apply for the TRA? Hope that makes sense! JOHN
  15. Hey all, Just making an enquiry on behalf of my Scottish partner. He's recently had his temporary de facto visa (subclass 309) approved and is hoping to commence an apprenticeship to become an electrician. He's contacted both the Australian Immigration and Education departments to make inquiries whether he's eligible to commence an apprenticeship before his temporary visa "expires" and becomes permanent in January 2012. Both departments have been unsure and directed him back and forth. The confusing detail is that the visa sticker doesn't actually stipulate an expiry date. We've been informed that he's eligible for PR in Jan 2012. Would anyone know for certain whether he would be precluded from commencing an apprenticeship before he earns permanant resident status? My understanding is that Centrelink offers Australian apprentices Austudy during their apprenticeship - we're guessing he wouldn't be entitled to any funds, but can anyone confirm this please? Many thanks and cheers, :confused:
  16. Hi, Just wondering if overseas student can undertake traineeship/apprenticeship in Australia. (work-based, not TAFE or uni) If so, what kind of visa am I looking at? And what are the steps? And it'd be great if anyone can point out where I can look for those traineeship/apprenticeship Thanks heaps in advance!
  17. This is a bit of a long shot, but is there anyone out there that is in a position to offer my son an electrical (preferred), carpentry or plumbing apprenticeship?? He is very hard working and reliable and is anxious to have a trade. thanks :notworthy:
  18. Hi My husband is a qualified Furniture spray painter and has moved to Gold Coast. He has not had any luck getting a job in that field. He has noticed there does seem to be alot of vehicle spray painter jobs available but u need experience. He would like to learn vehicle spray painting but doesnt know how to go about it. Is he too old for an apprenticeship? He's nearly 34. Or does anyone have any info on how he can learn and get experience. Thanks Jill

    Apprenticeship 4 TRA

    Hi, I am an General Electrician, I have 5.5 years of experience as a Electrcian. I have completed my Diploma in Electrical Engineering just before i start my job. In the first year of my job I was working as an Apprenctice Electrcian. Is this enough for me to apply through Pathway A in TRA? Any advice plz???
  20. Just wanted to let you all know that my 17 year old daughter has finally got a Hairdressing apprentice......yippee. She starts tomorrow as a 2nd year, (she did a year in Uk) I am over the moon as she has been looking since we got here in September. My eldest has a job but has applied for a child care traineeship so keep your fingers crossed for her. It is all coming together nicely now, and I am sure the wait will be worth it in the long run. Good luck to anyone else looking for a job as that is the only thing we have found difficult here. Aprilxx
  21. Hi all talked to the owner of the company i'll be working for, and he has offered my son Jake a job as an apprentice mechanic, my son is really made up. Makes the move with a teenager a little bit smoother, i hope he doesn't read this post, the owner said he's getting two for the price of one. Something is bound to go wrong but hopefully not thanks to all Dave Julie Jake Chloe and Tyler.

    Apprenticeship in Oz?

    Hello all. First post here so i'll start by saying this be a cool lil forum you got here. Now to the heart of the matter . I live in the UK and i'm getting pretty bored of it tbh. I was wondering how I would go about getting an apprenticeship in Oz. My main area is I.T and would prefereably like to go into this area as I have a BTEC in Software Development. I heard that apprenticeships are easier to find in Oz and that thier schemes are better, its niegh impossible to find one here in Manchester . Anyway what sort of Visa would I require? I'm guessing to work and live, but i dont know how they work out if your allowed one or not. Sorry for the Ramble people, but i had no clue of where to ask these questions and then i stumbled upon this Forum and it seeems the more likley place to get some answers . Oh and i dunno if this is the correct place to put this post in so move it if it aint in the right place Cheers. Mark :notworthy:
