Hi everyone. First time poster. I was wondering if you'd be able to provide me with some insight... I'm seeking to immigrate to Australia and am wondering if 1) it is going to be possible, and 2) if it is possible, what path I look into taking. About me: I'm a single, childless, financially stable 38-year-old Canadian citizen who is currently has a career with my province's department of justice as a youth corrections officer. I have 5 years of experience. Prior to that I worked with developmentally-challenged youth and young adults in the community for 5 years. I do not have a university degree, although I do have some post-secondary education and am currently working on a BA in Asian Studies on the side to keep my mind stimulated. I'm also an artist working in the medium of photography, although that certainly won't get me into the country as much more a lifestyle than career. I did some looking into SkillSelect and got in touch with VETASSESS about having my career recognized for the points system. I was informed that I required a university degree in a related field in order to qualify despite my career and years of service. I asked about what other paths to immigration that I might take but VETASSESS were unable to provide me with assistance. To enter my career as a corrections officer, prospective employees do not attend university but instead are required to successfully complete 3 months of full-time training. So the long and the short of it is, I think I have a unique skillset, and a notable amount of experience related to that skillset, but I do not have a related university degree. Is there possibly a way I could still immigrate to Australia? Thanks for your time, J
Guest posted a topic in Visa ChatHi all New to this site, so hopefully im asking in the correct place? My question is, how much experience / history is required in a chosen occupation, in our case a General Electrician? My o/h retrained to become an electrician, which he done over 3-4 years one day a week & now is fully C&G qualified & has gone on to do other courses in this profession. He has been qualified for about 3.5 years, but only worked in this field for an employer (or should I say he sub-contracts himself to this employer) for the last 2.5 years. A few years ago we went to a migration seminar in London & when we managed to ask any migration experts how much work history would we need, it ranged from 12 months to 7 years? :arghh: Would anyone know exactly how long it is, or how we can find out. We have gone online & filled in the migration forms, just to see if we stood a chance & they promised to phone us back within the next 48 hours, but no phone call!!! Even though it said we had passed!!! We would like to know asap, as o/h turns 40 this year & we need to know if it is worth builing our hopes up, or look for alternative places to consider...... Sorry this is soooo long & quite a few questions, but its worth a shot.....:chatterbox: Ps; what a great informative site Regards Tina & Rob :confused:
