  1. Hello! I am new to pomsinoz but I would really appreciate any help you can provide. I have been a kindergarten/preschool director for 5 and a half years and before that I have been an early childhood teacher for three years. I have a Bachelors Degree in Pedagogy of Primary and Preschool Education. I am planning to migrate to Oz as a Child Care Center Manager (ANZCO 134111) with the Direct Entry stream - 186 visa. The first step in this process would be to get a successful assessment from TRA. I think immi requires a BA for this position (because it's at skill level 1). As a kindergarten director I have done all the tasks (and more) listed on the immi website for this job and the kindergarten where I have worked resembles in a lot of ways a Childcare Center (after-school, offered lunch, nap time, etc.). I believe these should be enough but I am not sure what TRA is looking for... Do you think I am qualified enough and have enough work experience to get a successful assessment from TRA? Any advice you could give me would be great
  2. Is anybody here going to apply for 139914 Quality Assurance Manager or has already applied for it? Let's share information.
  3. Hi everyone Please can somebody tell me that if i have 2 years of human reaource advisor expwrience and 4 years of human resource manager experience in a school, will i be able to get a positive skill assessment from AIM? THANKS
  4. Hi Everybody, I am intending to apply for visa 189 as Construction Project Manager but I am little concerned because I was not actually practicing construction in a strict sense since a while. So I am working as Contracts Manager (Admin) in construction projects since 10 years, however, I have a Civil Engineering degree and I had around +3 years experience at my early years as Construction engineer. I also have an LLM in Construction Law and Arbitration. So my questions are: - Given the above can I apply for a Construction Project Manager? - Is there a minimum activities of Construction Project Manager that need to be included in my Company letter of experience under the Contracts Manager? if so what would be the acceptable minimum match between both positions e.g. 60% or what? - What would be the main criteria of assessment that could make it or break it when it comes to a case like mine? Sorry for the elaboration and looking forward for your advice. Regards, SH
  5. Can anyone help? We're about to get my husbands skills assessed as a Construction Project Manager. He can evidence this role since April 2007 to present. He also has a degree in Construction Management awarded June 2010 and a HNC in Construction awarded July 2007. As we were completing the form online, this paragraph came up - "This occupation requires a qualification which is assessed as comparable to the educational level of an Australian Bachelor degree or higher degree, in a highly relevant field of study to the nominated occupation. In addition to this, applicants must have at least one year of post-qualification employment at an appropriate skill level completed in the last five years in a field closely related to the nominated occupation. If employment is not post-qualification, then five additional years of closely related employment are required. If the degree is not in a highly relevant field of study, three years of employment at an appropriate skill level completed in the last five years in a field closely related to the nominated occupation is required. This is reduced to two years if there is an additional qualification at least at AQF Diploma level in a highly relevant field. A positive assessment of both qualifications and employment is required for a positive Skills Assessment Outcome. If the qualification(s) is not at the required educational level, employment will be assessed below the required skill level." As he only qualified with his degree in June last year, he obviously doesn't have the 'one year post qualification employment'. Although he's been in the role for 4 years and holds a HNC. Anyone know if this looks like a problem? :eek: Thanks
  6. Hello everybody, I know I'm new in this forum, however I'm friendly and respectful and I'm hoping you guys can give me some advice. I'm currently working in a large company and my employer would like to sponsor me. We have come up to two options: a) Production manager (manufacturing) or b) Primary foods inspector I am currently holding a diploma of business, diploma of management and diploma of administrator. My employer is very happy with this, but do you guys think I could get the 457 visa with these diplomas? I've been thinking to complete "Advanced diploma of management" as well, would that be enough? Thank you in advance, Demmu
  7. I have done my Bachelor of Engineering in Industrial Production.My experience is as follows 1) Pipeline Valve Industry - 2.5 Years as Quality Assurance Engineer. 2) Software(IT) Industry - 9.5 Years . Currently doing the role of IT project Manager. I am bit confused whether I can quote my IT projects in CDR and request for assesment as a Engineering Manager (ANZSCO 133211) from Engineers Australia. Note: IT project Manager ( ANZSCO 112411) is no longer in SOL else ACS skills assessment under RPL was the best option. Thanks In advance for all your inputs.
  8. Hi I am a HR Manager hoping to gain a skilled Regional Sponsored Provisional visa to Oz. The AIM criteria for the assessment of a HR Manager talks about 'senior functional management' and stipulates that the applicant must; have reporting responsibility for a number of managers who themselves manage a further group of managers be the most senior functional person in the organisation Whilst I consider myself to be a solid HR Manager, I do not meet the above criteria since my organisation is large and is not structured in this way. Also, when I look at the ANZSCO criteria my skills and experience closely fit this criteria. Are there any HR professionals who have experience of going through this process successfully who can advise me. I don't want to pursue the application if I have misunderstood and 'HR Manager' means 'Senior HR Manager' and I don't meet the criteria. If anyone can help I would appreciate it. Thanks, Upping sticks
  9. Hi there, we have ss with the ACT but are still waiting for their SMP to come out. Has it come out yet? We have an ASCO code of 2231-11 Systems Manager and apparently its not on the new SOL and if its not on the ACT's SMP then we have very little chance of going to Australia. Is this true? I am waiting patiently as I am sure everyone else is. I know we need to wait for the ACT to release their SMP. Do you think they will be releasing their SMP soon? We applied years ago and it sure feels like we've been waiting for about 10 years! What happens if our code is not on their list? What must we do? Can my husband reapply for a new code to the ACS? Also, because my husbands skills were assessed by the ACS years back - about 3 yrs, do we need to get them re-assessed? Please could someone answer at least a few of these questions. I cannot sleep !! :arghh:

    Vetassess - Office Manager Help!

    Hi, I am about to send my skills assessment to Vetassess for Office Manager. I really want to get this right first time so any help or experiences from people who have applied as an Office Manager would be appreciated. I have 3.5 years experience as an Office Manager and a NVQ Level 4, however this is in accountancy, would this be classed as a relevant field? I do have to carry out financial duties as part of my role as the Office Manager and my employer felt this was the best qualification to enrol me on, I completed it this year (2011). Also does anyone know what the 'Transcript' is in the required documents? Lastly how many payslips do they need? I can only find my last 6 months and would only be able to gain printer copies from my employer if they need more. Has anyone has a successful assessment? How long did it take? I travel to Oz in December and would like to have it all wrapped up and passed by then so that I can try really hard and find a sponsor whilst on my WHV. All help appreciated.

    HR Manager assessment

    I am just starting the skills assessment process for my visa application and I have been told it is very difficult to get a successful assessment against the HR manager (60 points) due to me not having an number of HR reports (which you tend not to have as an HR Business Partner). Has anyone experienced such difficulties? I am not sure whether it is worth making a case to the AIM to prove that i am working at a Senior Level although have no direct reports? I could apply for the Personnel Officer (50 points) but then i would be ten points short of the 120 required for a skilled migrant visa. Any advice would be much appreciated
