Hi Everyone, I currently live and work in Sydney on a temporary working visa. In addition to that, I am doing a 1 year Graduate Diploma in Education (Early Childhood) from the University of Southern Queensland. The GradDip has 60 days professional supervised practice in it. I was wondering if anyone has done this course/similar course recently and was successful in getting AITSL skills assessment? In the recent years, a lot of Grad Dip programs have been closed down around Australia due to some changes in the teacher registration process so I am a bit worried that I won't be able to get positive outcome. And yeah, I also have a 3 year bachelors degree in business. I'll be glad for any help. Thank you!
Hi, Can anyone help me to clarify how many points I should be able to get please? I’ve calculated it as: Age 40-44 = 15 points 5-7 years skilled employment = 10 points Will attempt to get superior English in IELTS! = 20 points Qualification for skilled occupation = 10 points Now here’s the bit that bothers me - can I also get 15 points for my BA from the UK as well as the 10 points for the qualification for skilled occupation? Or is it a case of one or the other? Because if I can’t have both, I’m not going to have enough points ? Also, are any additional points given for having a Masters? Thanks
Hello all. I am a new user ... recommended by my Brother-in-law ... I have been researching moving to Australia to teach for a while but I am still rather confused as to the value of my Teaching Qualification. I have a 'BA Hons Early Years Education with Qualified Teacher Status' Degree - I am a fully qualified Early Years and Primary Teacher with QTS - My degree however was 3 years and from what I have gathered from research, to teach in Australia I will need a 4 year teaching degree. Please can someone clarify this for me? Don't want to get my hopes up if there is no chance! Thank you in advance for any advice given!
Hi there, I have a 3year BSc Psychology degree already and I am ideally hoping to do a PGCE in Primary Education in September. Would I be able to apply as an Early Childhood teacher if I had at least a 45 day supervised placement in a classroom with children of the appropriate age whilst on my PGCE? For example in a reception class where the children are aged 4-5? Or would I be required to do the Early Years Education PGCE which covers only children aged 3-7? I am hoping to migrate to Australia but due to family circumstances cannot fully commit yet. Therefore I am apprehensive to do an Early Years PGCE as I feel it would limit my career options in England more if I have to stay, as surely primary schools would rather hire someone who is qualified to teach all years rather than just the first few years? Anyone with any experience here who could help me out would be doing me a massive favour. Thanks!!
