    Bricky quals?

    Hello all, I'm obviously new to all this but have a couple of questions somebody may be able to answer. I am currently in the Navy doing a job, which with a couple of extra courses, will allow me to be a Ship's Officer. The problem is that I have no interest in making this my job - as I am leaving the Navy to spend more time with my family. I've been looking at differant career options I can take and I want to learn a trade which will support my emigration without needing to spend money on the shipping qualifications. If I were to take a bricklaying course which offered perhaps an NVQ Level 2 would that be to the required standard for it to support my visa? I obviously will be limited, limited not none, I can do the course now and gain experience prior to the shift (possibly Apr-Jun 2013), whilst serving out my notice to the Navy. What is the procedure for obtaining the go ahead from the Ozzies? If any can point me in the right direction I would really apreciate it. Thanks alot guys.
  5. Alrite, I'm a bricky from Liverpool and have got the nod for my visa last month, and am planning to move to Sydney (Bondi, North Bondi, Rose Bay Area) with my wife, and two little lads. I have a few contacts in Perth, but this isnt where we're landing, and cant really get any information, workwise and prices for any jobs in the Sydney area. I would be very gratefull for any information about jobs, contacts, or agencies for bricklaying jobs. Thanks

    Re-training as a bricky in Oz?

    Hi all Fantastic site! Not had much of a life away from PC since finding it! I'm 26, Rach is 27, and we have 2 nips, age 8 (Dec) and 18mths (Maddison). I have worked as a fire sprinkler fitter for just over 12 months with no formal qualifications. Before that i have been a site labourer and also office based! Rach is currently in an office based/admin role for over 8 years (also no quals). Since I have no qualifications I feel like I should choose an occupation that really appeals to me and stick with it - Bricklaying in Australian sun (sounds great to me) So, we are looking to lodge an app for Student Visa (572) so i can study Bricklaying at TAFE Gipps in Melbourne, VIC. Our route is then to apply for graduate visa (485) to gain work experience, followed by an application for Perm. Residence. I have thoroughly researched into the proccesses and often been confused. Our house is going on the market in next week or 2 under price for quick(er) sale. We stand to make around £40K from this which will be our budget. We not big spenders so feel we can manage with this after working out school and course fees, rentals, car, etc. Just worried with these changes and the current climate. Don't want to end up back in England with all lost, after studying in Oz! I invite people to shoot holes in my plan! :hug: Seriously, any advice greatly appreciated. Many many thanks Ant and Rach :wacko:

    Expos- Bricky Advice Please Read

    If any brickies out there thinking of emigrating can get to one of the expos being held in the UK, do! My husband attended one in Manchester in 2006, the Australia Needs Skills Expo, and registered his details with a representative from the ABBTF- Australian Brick and Blocklaying Federation. They offered to help brickies migrate under the skilled visa route, AND offered to re-imburse his visa cost of $2000 when he had been working as a brickie in Oz for three months. Well, after working on the Gold Coast for three months, Richard applied, and recieved a cheque for $2000 from them this week, after filling in a few details on a form, and getting his employer to sign it. This was only any good if you had registered with the ABBTF before getting your visa. We applied for our visa in June 2006, but didn't register with them until October 2006, and still got the payment. Another guy working here in a similar position, but who hadn't ever spoken to them, was not eligible, SO PLEASE GO AND REGISTER!!!! I know there's one coming up in London soon. I'm not sure if they are still doing it, but it was only a couple of weeks ago we got our application in. If you contact the ABBTF, find their details on Google, they can let you know. Jo
