I am currently on a working holiday visa with my girlfriend. We have been here about 4 weeks and really like the country. We have seen a few of the main cities and decided to come to Perth and stay. We would like to stay here permanently, so basically trying to get the correct info for what visa's would be ideal for us. I helped my brother-in-law set up a business in the UK. We were doing loft conversions. I was able to do all aspects of the job, carpentry side and business side of things. I was there about 6 years. I left as I always wanted to come to Australia. Now I have and like it I don't want to leave. I don't have a carpentry qualification as I learnt on job. I have 6 years job experience with carpentry in total. So basically what should I do..... Getting sponsored seams difficult, tried lots of companies and no luck. Should I go on a student visa to do the carpentry certificate 3 course, but it can take 1-2 years and can cost a lot of money. Is there a way if anyone knows that I could do a quick carpentry course so I can gain the qualification to match my experience. Then there is the points based system. I am 29years of age - 30points, my English is ok so not sure if I can earn points there as I hear the exams are extremely hard, if your skill is on the SOL list then you get 10points carpentry is, but must complete an assessment of you skill I think, 6 years experience 15points, So all in all 55points. 5 short. how else could I earn the 5points. Also which points visa do I approach the Individual 189. Lots of questions I know. But I am in real need for help and advice. So please if anyone could help me with these questions, or can even point me in the direction of someone who can. I would be very grateful. Perhaps I could lend my skills to help you. Thanks
Hello All, My Partner has always wanted to complete an apprenticeship in Carpentry but due to his choice to travel and contributing circumstances he has never been able to do it. Now that we are moving to Oz permanently its a great opportunity to do the things we always wanted to do. We will be living with my Parents at first so money isn't really an issue either. Has anyone had any experience finding a Mature Age Apprenticeship in Oz? Any advice we can get would be so appreciated!! :smile::cool:

Hi everybody , First timer here so be gentle with me . Seriously thinking of throwing in the towel here and coming over to oz , ideally Adelaide ( as we have friends there and were out in May for a holiday and loved it ). I am a carpenter to trade with 25 yrs experience and City & guilds and Advanced craft certificates. First of all is there plenty of work in Adelaide or its surrounding areas for me ( and with decent money ). Can anybody shed any light on the trade test I need to sit and also the EEILTS test I need to take ( 5 points short because of my age ) We have a wee boy aged 5 who would love it out there. Any help would be appreciated thanks Kingjohn
