SCITT based teacher training issue with AITSL
Rob Frain posted a topic in Working and Skilled VisasHi all. The wife and I are both teachers. My wife qualified at Liverpool John Moores University as a PE teacher and did everything University based back in 2006. She has taught in a secondary school since this date. We applied for her skills assessment got everything through from AITSL in 8 weeks with no issues. I applied just before her however and I'm getting nowhere. I recently became a teacher after a career change and went via a SCITT based in the North West and LJMU. This issue I'm having is that the SCITT arranged my supervised teaching placements instead of the University. I managed to get a great letter from the University trying to help me out but sadly it hasn't worked. Due to this occurring AITSL have declined me - here is the extract from the email from AITSL: We understand that a formal academic award and transcript has been issued by Liverpool John Moores University, however this institution has also clearly stated they did not participate in any way in the selection, organisation, supervision or assessment of your supervised teaching practice. In order for AITSL to recognise your teaching qualification, our requirement is for a statement of supervised teaching practice from the awarding university. This demonstrates a link between the theory being taught as part of an academic qualification and the opportunity to practice this under university supervision. Your university has confirmed Endeavour SCITT was responsible for this component of the qualification, therefore it has been found unsuitable for an AITSL skills assessment. Is there anything I can do? I feel like we have spent so much on this between the pair of us and have failed at the last hurdle. So annoying as part of the career change was done so I would be able to gain points to teach in Australia!
Student nurse wanting a clinical placement in Perth
minnie659 posted a topic in Western AustraliaHi I am a year 3 adult student nurse from the U.K. We have been given the opportunity to have an overseas placement for 4 weeks starting the 27th June 2010. I have rang a few hospitals and emailed but have had no luck. Does anyone know any hospitals or areas that could offer this facility. I have tried Fremantle Hospital, Royal Perth hospital, Ramsay Health I am waiting to hear from St John of God and Rockingham. Any ideas or suggestions would be great. Thanks
Full time, paid, work placement - IT Query
Guest posted a topic in Visa ChatHi all, My partner has 4 years work experience in IT and we are hoping to apply for a 175 visa, if we get approved by the ACS. The 4 years includes a 16 month full time, paid, work placement in between his 2nd and 4th year of uni. Would the ACS see this as 16 month's experience and go towards his 4 years of experience? Has anyone included their work placement and been accepted by the ACS? I hope so! We really don't want to wait another 16 months before we can apply...:unsure:
