    1. Hello!!! I am currently in the process of organising my skills assessment with VETASSESS (the assessing body for hairdressing here in Oz)... I have a Cert III in Hairdressing (Oz qualification) now. Was wondering if anyone has done a skills assessment recently?? I'm unsure what documents I need, do I need to supply ALL of my payslips or just an example from employers to prove full time employment?? Any help would be so much appreciated! Very stressful!!
    2. I have two questions regarding skills. 1) Is education (time spent on university) considered as experience for skill assessment (maybe partially)? To be specific my assessing authority is Engineers Australia. 2) To get additional points for my partner's skills, her skills must be assessed as well. What happenes if she has only Master's degree and no post-graduate experience, is she still eligible and will I get points? (VETASSES) Thanks in advance for help!
    3. I am a Town Planner working in a Local Authority in the UK. I am 29 and would like to move to Australia before I am 30. I have heard for a few years there is a shortage of Town Planners but unsure how likely they would be willing to give someone a chance with only UK experience (8 months from becoming chartered too!). Are there any planners out there who have been or are in a similar situation? Is it easy to get sponsored and what is the Australian planning system like to get to grips with? Any advice is welcome as I have no idea where to start.
    4. Hi, I have been living and working in Australia since February 2015. I have, however, been with my current employer since October 2016. My employers would like to sponsor me for PR, but since I have not been with them for 2 years, I require a skills assessment with Vetassess. I have 12 years experience in my role, however I am not degree qualified. I have contacted a company called Get Qualified, and they said my experience can be transitioned/recognised as comparable to a Graduate Diploma - http://qualifyme.edu.au/qualifications/graduate-diploma-of-management-learning/ . This qualification is nationally recognised. This is actually higher than a Bachelor Degree (Undergraduate program). On Vetassess website, it says that in order to get a positive skills assessment, I require a qualification comparable or higher than a Bachelor Degree for my chosen occupation. So, in theory, if I get this qualification, would that be sufficient for a positive assessment?
    5. Hi Guys, I am on 457 visa as a Butcher ( 1 year). I got through RPL a Certificate III in Meat processing last month. I am intend to apply to get my skills assessed on Trades Recognition Australia. They say: "The TRA Migration Skills Assessment Applicant Guidelines state that where an AQF qualification has recently been obtained through RPL, an applicant must also provide evidence of employment that: covers no less than six years of full-time (or equivalent) paid employment, three years of which may be as a trainee under the direct supervision of a tradesperson/employer (this is considered an informal training period) with an additional three years full-time (or equivalent) paid employment completed at the required skill level for the occupation." I already have one year of experience in Australia and back to my country I got 2 years of experience as a trainee but I was under 16 and after that 4 years as full time. And it was more than 10 years ago (I am 32 years old). Does anyone in this forum had any similar experience? Thanks
    6. Hi there, My name is Rob and i have never used a forum before. I am a qualified refrigeration and air con engineer. I'm 24, single, no kids or dependents. I did a 7 month stint in WA fitting air con down in the wine region and Perth 2013-2014. I'd like to apply for a skilled visa and come back to work as a fully licensed engineer. I was lucky enough to make many contacts that are keen to employ me. I didn't want to do a sponsorship when i was there as i wanted my own freedom and not to suddenly find myself "trapped" in one company. Also i have literally no family in Aus, just some close friends and an ex girlfriend. I'm looking for anyone that can recommend me a decent agent in which i can do my skills transfers with. I've been talking to a guy called James (jim) Gordon who seems very professional and boasts a 100% migration record. He has a MARA number but when i searched on the IMMI/MARA database it returned no results, there were only 2 migration agents registered on MARA that are in the UK of which i have contacted. But was just wondering if anyone has any advice on Jim or anyone has used him? I'm not very Anal normally but i just want to find the best agent that would do the best job. Recommendations and stories appreciated. From what ive seen its gonna be a long, rocky road to Australia. Rob.
