    Can I re-train

    Hi, I'm coming to Sydney on my husband's 457 visa (fingers crossed), in the UK I could re-train as a nurse, can I do this in Australia? If so, how, thanks:biggrin:

    Retrain your skills

    I was wondering about the unemployment situation in the North of England that everyone seems to be talking about. What i cant understand is why dont some who are in a desperate situation retrain. I know in Australia they had a big recruitment drive in the last couple of years for mature apprenticeships etc. Do City and Guilds offer traineeships or accelerated NVQ's for these people or have the British government ceased training opportunities for them. Surely if things in the UK are as grim as im hearing, it would boost the self esteem of many unemployed individuals give them an income through this recession as well as learn new skills.

  5. Hi All, I'm new here and looking forward to moving to the Sunshine Coast at the end of May this year. My wife is going to do a degree course at the university of the sunshine coast and I'm looking at my options! I have UK property investments that I will manage from Aus. I was going to become a mortgage broker in the UK, but hope that I might now be able to do this is Aus instead. Anyone got any good advice on where/who to train with? I've read that it might be possible to complete the exams while still in the UK, is this true? Any advice appreciated! Also would love to chat to others that live in the nearby areas. Cheers James
  6. Hi, We are making the move down under in July 2010, on my OH's occupation (accountant). I myself was a chef before I had the kids, but have been a full-time Mum for the past 11 years. When we move to Oz I would really like to fulfill my lifes ambition of becoming a midwife. I just wanted to know if I will be able to go back to full time educaton and what I will be entitled to do. What will the Midwifery training involve? What will the child care resources be available to me? (my kids are 11 and 7). Melanie x
  7. Hi guys I am new on the site, so hope this is the right place to post, any advice would be appreciated. Me and my hubby have just returned from WA after our second visit and would love to live their...only problem is i am a self employed nail technician and hubby is car salesman, unfortunatley not on the skilled occupation list!!!! I have spoke to a couple of migration agents to test the water and a couple have said we could get a student vis and it would be no problem and would def get permanent residency at the end. Others have told me this is a bad route to take with no guarentees at the end and would cost a fortune. I am 31 and hubby will be 39 in couple of weeks, i could retrain but i have to work as i own a shop so it would have to be part time. Any advice on what would be the best courses/qualifications to take, how much experience would be needed, how long etc. Anybody got any pros cons for study here or in oz? Apologies for the long windedness of post Many thanks:biggrin:
  8. Hi Seeing as we may now have a 3 year wait to get a visa i wondered about re training for when i get to Aus. Maybe social worker - seems to be in need here and in Aus, i like people and it appears to be a rewarding job. What would you re train as and why?
  9. I've not visited this website for a few months, but decided to pick it back up again. Myself & my boyfriend would like to look into migrating to Perth (or surrounds) if possible, but we don't have actual trades - both work in an Insurance Company & are aged 28 & 31 and have worked for the co for approx 10 yrs each. We're not sure if we should try & change jobs/do an evening course etc to try & learn a new trade/career (as this might help) but are not sure where to start. Does anyone know if Migration Agents can help with this sort of thing (and if so, any good ones) or are you supposed to know exactly what you want to do before approaching them? There is so much to think about, but we don't know where to get the info from!! Would appreciate any info/help. thanks very much

    Re-train for a visa??

    Hi all Firstly thanks to all who replied to my last question. I am 43, my wife 38 we have 6 kids between us and 1 on the way. Whilst I have been running a successfull plastic repair/vehicle/motorcycle respray business for many years I have no formal qualifications except for "the university of life" which does not count that much when trying to get a Visa for Oz. Fortuantly I have some good friends in Oz and it is highly likely I will get a job offer and sponsorship from a business. HOWEVER...... I note that "General Plumbers" and "Electricians" are on the new Critical list and also on the MODL list. I have found courses which can offer fast track training in both of these trades to a level which I am told will satisfy the Authorities but Im sure will still need verifying or testing by Vetasses or TRA or whoever. Given that I am not getting any younger I would greatly value any comments or advice as to if I would stand more chance of a visa if I re-trained as plumber or a sparky or push on with a job offer as a vehicle painter and hopefully being sponsored by a business. Thanks in advance for any help or advice from anyone. Regards Mark
  13. My first post - yaaay ! We will be moving to Oz in the next couple of years with my husbands job, so it gives me some time to re-train in something new and something which is "needed" in Oz. I have been self employed inthe past running my own businesses, or I have been working as a PA in office to CEO's, etc. I'm also qualified as a Personal Trainer and as a Nutritionist, although that qualification isn't recognised in Oz. I would like to do something which helps people, maybe a therapy of some sort, but am open to lots of new ideas. Many thanks ! :v_SPIN:
