  1. Hi Everybody! I'm a 27 year old lawyer who's just walked away from it all to do try and make a living off something I love - Baking. Now the thing is, I tried going there and doing the course-my Aunt offered to loan ne the money- but the visa was turned down because they weren't convinced that I was a 'Genuine Temporary Entrant'. Guess lawyers don't usually up and decide to become bakers that often, eh? Anyway, their loss, because I'll be getting qualified and then going there. Planning on doin the City&Guilds Diploma in Baking and Patisserie (IVQ level 3- I believe) as well as their Advanced Diploma in the same. The DIAC specifies a Cert III + 2 Yrs of experience for a successful skills assessment. Or if you have a Cert IV, you don't need the experience. I've read in a lot of places that the Level 3 Diploma has been assessed as Higher than their Cert IV (which happens to be a skill level 3 on the ANZSCO - perhaps that's why). I'm counting quite heavily on this last bit, but the problem is, I've seen it for other trades/professions and not for bakers yet. So are there any bakers out there who have made the move successfully or even gotten a positive skills assessment? Any tips, stories or pointers from any other tradies too will be appreciated! Thanks!!
