  1. Hello everyone, I am new to this forum. I need some clarification on claiming points for qualifications. In August 2018, I received positive skills assessment outcome from VETASSESS for Marketing Specialist occupation. The skills assessment was based on my work experience, and my bachelors and masters degree. However, after positive skills assessment, I received my PhD degree from an Australian university in December 2018. My PhD degree has not been assessed by VETASSESS. I have claimed 20 points for the PhD in my EOI and lodged 190 visa application in Jan 2019. Is it alright to claim points for a degree that was not part of the skills assessment outcome ? I have submitted my PhD degree certificate and transcripts as evidence. I appreciate your help and advice. Thank you
  2. Hi just wondering if anyone is in the same situation as me & can share their experiences / advice? I have a 3 year primary education degree with fully qualified teacher status from the Uk, along with 11 years teaching experience. Last year I applied to BOSTES for the statement of eligibility - got conditional status meaning I would have to complete further study but they state that I can teach casually with this I then applied to the DEC NSW for the approval to teach in state schools and was turned away - stating the fact that I only have a 3 year degree not a 4 year one as a reason for not giving me approval to teach. When I queried this they gave me 3 options - to do a whole degree again, to do a Masters of Teaching or to do a 4th year upgrade course, and was told to contact universities directly to find out what my options were. Well the ones I contacted had never heard of a ''4th year upgrade' course, and the others told me that they weren't able to decide if I could do a shortened course de to previous learning i.e. credit transfer as they said it was BOSTES who had to decide this because they're the ones that accredit the courses. When I spoke to BOSTES they then said that no it's up to the universities to decide which course /únits I would have to take! So I hit a brick wall! Also when I spoke to Randstad regarding getting supply teaching they said I would need the DEC teacher number to be registered for work with them, therefore can't teach just with the BOSTES statement as BOSTES themselves had advised! After further enquiry with BOSTES, they again said that I CAN teach just with the eligibility statement - only state schools require the DEC number, so I've been looking through the job ads for about a year now for schools that don't require the DEC number to apply for a job with them but ALL of them - state /independent/ etc request that uou have approval to teach or 'the ability to gain approval to teach'' Am I being completely thick about this whole thing or are BOSTES being completely misleading? Is there anyone out there who has got work casual or permanent state /independent schools with a 3 year teaching degree? Anyone had to complete further study and can advise me on which uni to speak to? Any advise or just a share of your own experience with this would be really helpful as Im trying to work out if we should stay here or best to return to the Uk - can't really afford to study with 2 young children at home as well. Thanks.
  3. hi guys i am in my last semester of my bachelors degree in architecture currently studying at curtain university, bentley campus, perth. i intend to apply for a temporary visa and hopefully get a permanent residency. the question i have is that i have looked at the skilled migration visa and the assessment board that assesses qualifications in the field of architecture - AACA Architects Accreditation council of Australia. From my understanding, to get registered as an architect in Australia you need to obtain a masters degree in architecture plus need to have completed a certain hours of practice that add to approximately 1.5 to 2 years. :wacko: but that's for a working license as an architect right? Does this apply to the skill assessment application too? do i need to complete my masters degree before i can apply for a skill assessment? or Could i apply after my Bachelor's degree? anyone who has gone through the process of their skill assessment with AACA? please help, any info is greatly appreciated :notworthy:
