  1. Good afternoon (or morning) everyone, I previously posted a question regarding Secondary Teaching, as at the time it was what I had planned to carry on and do. However after some interesting times, I am now aiming towards a career in Museums, and Australia still has a strong hold over me. On the Consolidated Skills Occupation List, Gallery or Museum Curator is listed (224212) however how do I find out which state the position actually belongs on? Ideally I am looking at Western Australia and Queensland. Where can I find more detailed information? I also have some other questions. By June 2016 I will have: BA (Hons) Classical Studies SVQ Level 3 Museums and Galleries Studies 1 years experience in a Museum, more curatorial than FOH I plan on going to do MA Museums and Galleries Studies in either St Andrews or Leicester (admission dependent!) 2016-2017. By the time of completing the MA, I will be 29. I found somewhere it states that you require at least 1 years experience in highly relevant employment (can't for the life of me remember where I found it). Would my 1 years experience count? That would be the year 2015-2016, whereas I would complete my MA in 2017 (assuming the plan goes along smoothly). I also at one point found a list explaining what points you got for what...skills you had (IELTs, education, age, etc) but I also can't find that and my mind is running blank.... I also understand that this occupation could be pulled at any point, however if that's the case then I will deal with it then! Thanks anyone who can help or advise with all of this. I've searched the forums high and low, and there is very little information I can find regarding this occupation! Thanks! Kirsty

    Melbourne Science Museum

    In Spotswood, the museum is a great place to spend the day. It's very engaging for children there are areas about planets, household 'bits' ie water use, recycling, food a pumping station where you can see all the old machines and our favourite and I'm sure a favorite with most people the sports section where you can run against the clock, test your strength, co ordination amongst other things. There is also 2 playgrounds one shaded one not a picnic area with free BBQ's and there is free parking it was $6 (I think) per adult entrance and children (under 16 I think) go free. It's not as 'nerdy' (sorry to science buffs) as you might think and you can spend hours there. Michelle
