    Chef skills assessment

    Hey everyone I'm new here and have just submitted my evidence to vetasess for skills assesment as a Chef. Could anyone give me an idea on specifics of what is discussed at technical interview? I've got the fact sheet which matches up close to my nvq that I did way back when. But hopefully someone can give me a better idea of what to expect

    Chef for 189/190?

    Hey all, Has anyone successfully applied for a 189/190 as a Chef? I'm making some enquiries on behalf of someone. Thanks, DN
  5. Hi All, I'm applying for a 189 PR visa as a chef. Got my technical interview coming up on the 9th May and am terrified! I know my stuff but am AWFUL at interview type situations and am worried i'm just going to clam up and struggle with it. For the ILETS test at least there are samples online, but for the technical interview I can't find anything at all. Does anyone have any experience of this they'd care to share? Just what sort of areas are covered, what they ask, the format of the interview etc? Is it recipe stuff, eg how to bake a loaf of bread,or more the admin/healthand safety/staffing side of it? I know it's 2-3 hours and that's about it! Thanks to anyone who can shed any light at all!
  6. Hi guys, i have a plan A and plan B, both have been discussed on here. Now there's also potentially a back up plan. In 2002 i passed a Btec National Diploma in Hospitality and Catering Management and then i was a chef for 12 years. Thing is it's been over 4 years since i was a chef so i wondered if this would affect an assessment. I've asked the migration agent who has been advising me at OE (that we're highly likely to be using, i think it's @Richard Gregan who heads up that agency and he's been great too, calling my fiancee and leaving a message on Friday) and i'm waiting on a reply. I could potentially use my career as a chef to obtain a visa and get back in the kitchen! Any advice on this would be welcomed. Thanks, Lewis

    Chefs Wanted in Australia

    The McGowan government’s ­decision to tear up the list that fast-tracked overseas workers to Western Australia has made it tough for Margaret River’s wineries and restaurants to put meals on customers’ plates during their peak new year trade. There are simply too few local chefs and trained kitchen staff to cope, says Amelia Park Tavern’s resident chef Gary Wilkins, who moved to Margaret River eight years ago for the relaxed lifestyle. “We’re struggling to get help and there’s a limited number of good local chefs,” he says. It has taken the importation of seven temporary chefs, one flown in from Sydney, to keep operating Amelia Park’s kitchen. “It costs management a lot more money to get people in,” Wilkins said. The labour cost — more than double the normal rate of about $25-$30 an hour — can reach nearly $100 an hour in some cases, when labour-hire company fees are included. Shortly after taking office, Premier Mark McGowan made good on an election promise to slash occupations that could be filled by overseas workers. He said changed economic conditions required local jobs to be kept open for the more than 90,000 unemployed West Australians, but his government’s cuts to the eligible skills list — from 170 occupations to 18, none of them hospitality jobs — has left the sector shorthanded. The government also withdrew Perth as a destination from the Regional Sponsored ­Migration Scheme, which offers incentives to lure foreign visa holders to less populated areas. Opposition tourism spokeswoman Libby Mettam said Perth’s hospitality industry was having difficulties recruiting staff as a result. “This is the first Christmas season for the hospitality and service industry where the impact of this shortsighted and ill-advised move is being felt,” she said. The changes have hit just as a wave of new hotels, bars and restaurants is helping to diversify WA’s resource-dominated economy. And with direct flights due to start between Perth and London, and Asian tourism on the rise, good hospitality staff “is high on the list of needs”, she said. “From a tourism perspective, there is no second chance in making an excellent first impression.”
  8. Okay, so I really want to move to Perth, WA. Luckily I've worked there as a Head Chef before on a holiday working VISA so I know Perth pretty well. Before I left to come home I was offered a permanent working VISA at the place I worked. Unfortunately, due to personal reasons I had to come home back to the UK. I've been back now for about 2 years and all I want to do is go back out there to enjoy a better lifestyle and bring my partner (who came with me and worked in Australia too on the holiday VISA). I don't know where to even start, I've booked myself in for the IELTS test to prove I can speak good English. But what's the next move? Just approach Australian Businesses online and hope to get a sponsor again? Or pay thousands of ££s out to some random VISA company?Thank you for your response, I really appreciate it! Rob. Also I would like to add that I have been a Chef for over 13 years now, so I have a lot of experience.
  9. Hello Everyone, Going to face a technical skill assessment interview through Vetassess. So anybody who did already get through this stage would like to help? Any advice will be appreciated. I'm willing to know what kind of questions they will ask? So will prepare myself mentally. I'm not worried but don't want to take any chance. Thank you guyz..

    The new training visa 407

    The 407 is a great way to experience Australia whilst gaining new or enhancing current occupational skills. The visa is for both paid and voluntary internships for up to 24 months (the government decide on the length based on the occupation, the applicants work or study history, skills and qualifications, age etc). The sponsor of the applicant is not the employer and is required put the applicant through a skills training program in conjunction with a host employer. The training visa 407 can relate to any occupation on the CSOL list available here: https://www.border.gov.au/Trav/Work/Work/Skills-assessment-and-assessing-authorities/skilled-occupations-lists/CSOL You can read all about this newly introduced visa here: https://www.border.gov.au/Trav/Visa-1/407- I welcome any questions, Ray Daniel Access Training & Logistics (Training Visa 407 Sponsorship Approved) Geelong, Victoria, Australia

    Paleo Pete

    Anyone else watch channel 7s Sunday Night program last night? He makes bold claims usually against scientific facts, heres a few: Paleo We promote an organic diet of small to moderate amounts of well sourced seafood and or meat from land animals, an abundance of colourful vegetables and fruit, (lower carb preferably as the majority of your intake) and good quality dietary fat as opposed to the criminal low fat movement. Avoid dairy We encourage people to ditch the dairy as a marketed health food from the dairy association for 3 months and see how their bodies feel without it. Some of his other claims are really out there, how do you stand on his whole approach to life and eating 'well'. Money spinners or does he talk sense?

    Chef/Cook TRA Skills Assessment

    Hello everyone, My partner (a chef) wants to get a permanent visa for Australia. Right now we are intending on applying for subclass 190, state sponsorship. (If his English test goes really well we might try for subclass 189) We are currently getting the (ENDLESS) paperwork together for his TRA Skills Assessment. We're struggling to know exactly what to write for Part 8 / his Description Of Your Work (in own words) and exactly what we need in the letters from his employers (how much detail?!). I would appreciate any tips anyone has and if anyone would share with me their own documents (actual letters, templates, anything) we would be so grateful. Especially other chefs/cooks! Just for ideas and peace of mind, I would never plagiarize! Thank you, Alice
  13. Hi Iron Chef, I purchased my car (a 2005 911) in late November 2010 in London and we are aiming to move to Sydney in or around November/December this year, although there is an outside chance that we may need to move back in late September. Assuming we have to move back just prior to the 12 month anniversary of the purchase, do you have any ideas on how I can apply for the import licence and still get the car into Oz? Also, do you know if the Australian government is looking to reduce the 12 month ownership condition? Thanks in advance for any advice you can provide. Cheers J

    Vetasses

    Hi everyone, I wondered if anybody could help me..... I applied to vetasses as a cook and passed my technical assessment but they want me to take a first aid course. The course they have suggested is a 3 day course at a cost of £380! They require me to have a level 2 first aid certificate I wondered if anybody else has been in a similar situation and can suggest any other courses that aren't so expensive and aren't 3 days as It will be difficult to get time off of work. I am using a migration agent but the one I started with left, so I am using a different agent within the same company. When I first started the process I wasn't told that I needed a first aid certificate it was only during the technical interview it was brought up. I have suggested other courses but they say they don't meet their standards yet the course they are comparing to in Australia is a one day course and they haven't provided what the course entails so I can compare. If anyone has any suggestions or could help I would really appreciate it! Many thanks

    Chef.

    What are the chances of finding sponsorship as a chef from England? I have not worked as a chef for two years as I took some time off to care for a sick relative. My wife and I are looking to move to Australia for a better quality of life, we do not have dreams of swimming pools or houses by the beach. More just sunshine and the time that we have, being quality time together. I spent a year in Sydney in my twenties working as a chef and really enjoyed it. My wife has travelled there as well and loves the country. I cannot get a visa as my work experiance is not recent. I am 37 years of age and a very good chef. My wife works in IT and her job is not on the wanted skills list, but she would find a job really easy as we see lots advertised for her. So I am wondering if anyone on here is willing to sponsor a hard working chef? Maybe somebody owns a restaurant or a bar and is looking for somebody they can rely on to be in their kitchen? I'm not afraid of hard work and can supply you with my CV and references if you are interested. I have worked in all different kinds of places from pubs to three rosette restaurants and I am looking for a place where I can put in a hard days work with a good and honest employer.
  19. Hello, I am looking to apply for the skilled migration PR 189 visa, I work as a chef, currently still working in Perth. My temporary 2nd working holiday visa expires end of February. I realise that because of my profession, that i need to choose either the 457 or PR subclass 189 (state sponsorship to WA). I am not interested in 457. I know that i already pass the points score, i just need to do the skillselect then do my EOI I'm undecided whether or not i should start this process whilst I'm in this country now - if its not already too late? (or wait to return to the UK and apply from the UK) The only reason that i thought about applying for the PR visa in England, was that i can claim all my Superannuation payments back (a few thousand dollars) then use this money to apply for the visa. A few questions... if I applied in England, can I pay in australian dollars, or do i have to exchange my money to GBP (losing money) If i had the permanent residency visa, how much time do i have to spend in WA each year (can i spend 2 months a year in the UK) I will want to become a citizen of Australia as soon as possible... is it easier and less expensive to apply for this visa in Australia, or is it just as simple to apply outside of Australia. (will i find it harder applying in England) I would really appreciate your opinion, I am really confused, and unsure where i can receive help. Kind Regards,

    Unsuccessful TRA Skills Test - Chef

    Hi guys, We have just had a letter from the TRA saying my fiances skills test was unsuccessful. The suggestion they have given us is - If considering a future application, it is recommended that you review sections 2.6.1, 2.6.3, 2.6.4 and 2.8.4 of the TRA migration skills assessment application guidelines in detail regarding the evidence needed to meet the qualifications & employment requirements. Section 2.8.4 of the TRA guidelines states what evidence is required for applicants who have been issued an Australian qualification via RPL. The comparable Australian qualification is the Cert IV in Hosp (Commercial Cookery). They also state that they cannot confirm that our claims of employment have met eligibilty requirements under section 2.8 We did not submit any qualification documents because my partner did not finish his NVQ's in the UK. We have tried to demonstrate that 15 years experience as head or sous chef, should be suffice. I wrote very detailed descriptions under part 8 for each job that he has done and also a general one describing his skills and responsibilities. I also include detailed refs from all his employers My question is, do we appeal? If so, how? What more could they want/need? OR do we start a fresh application? Any advice would be gratefully appreciated! Thanks PS - We are here on a 457 visa
