  1. I'm not sure if I can cope with another 'night shift' after the game against the Gooners but if I don't turn up I feel like I've let the other guys down. Many of them come from all over Sydney, one from Central Coast, work the next day too. Once I'm thinking about it, even going to bed is no good because I wake up anyway. Liverpool v Man Utd at 1045pm tonight? A much more civilised time. Why don't they kick of all the EPL games at that time?
  2. I'm leaving now at nearly midnight to walk down Elizabeth St to the pub,take me 15 mins. If anyone else is sitting at home watching on their own, get your skates on! (if you are a Spurs fan that is! - otherwise go to Cheers on George St!)
  3. Sydney OzSpurs currently meet at: Triple Ace Bar 198 Elizabeth Street Corner of Elizabeth & Campbell, nr Central Stn (02) 9212 1911 For the latest details of meet-ups and live games make sure you check out the OzSpurs Forum. It's the next best thing to being at WHL! Wear a shirt if you've got one & bring your singing voice.
  4. If you are a Spurs fan that is, or even maybe an Everton fan for one night only! I expect most Spurs fans know this already, but if you don't, this is where Spurs fans go! Some to watch the game, some to drink and watch the game, some to drink, sing & watch the game. and all for a good time, even if we lose!
  5. 15 minute walk but some of the guys have been there since 10pm - KO at midnight. Thought about taking my car so I won't have a beer - not wanting to repeat last night - but it's lazy to get it out of the garage to drive 2km. Oh well, I guess all around OZ other guys (and a few girls) are going out (or staying in) to watch their games - Man U on at 2.30am the only uncivilized time. Seem to recall a lady going to Perth worrying about her hubbie having to go 'cold turkey' and give up his footie? Well, no probs as far as EPL & SPL go and sports bars are everywhere. Recommend he gets into Aussie sports too plus the A League.

    Final Triple check

    Hi all, I am a qualified accountant from the UK; I have my IELTS result of 8.5 and a satisfactory skills assessment from the CAA. (Married with one daughter and another child upon us very shortly) Now that online applications are reopened (though not WA yet) I just wanted to double/triple check that my understanding was correct. I read that skilled independents are fairly low down the priority list behind sponsored applicants (though I can't find the article now), and could be waiting around 3 years. Therefore It would be much quicker to apply for state sponsorship (WA being my preferred choice), and that the visa process via state sponsorship could be completed within 12 months or so. Is my understanding correct? Or has it all changed with new rules? Thanks in advance Andy
  7. High TAFE fees threaten debt for students | theage.com.au High TAFE fees threaten debt for students Farrah Tomazin Education Editor August 23, 2008 TAFE fees will almost triple over the next three years and thousands of students will be forced to take on debt to cover the increased costs as part of a contentious State Government plan to tackle skills shortages. In a move that has prompted fears that TAFE will become unreachable for many, the Government will increase fees for diplomas and advance diplomas, and introduce a HECS-style loan scheme for students to try to soften the blow. The new fee structure forms part of the most dramatic shake-up of Victoria's vocational education and training system in years. The maximum annual tuition fee for a diploma or advance diploma will increase from $877 to $1500 next year. In 2010, the fees will rise to $2000, and to $2500 in 2011. The price increases will affect most courses but not "foundation" learning areas such as maths, reading and writing. Skills Minister Jacinta Allan's spokeswoman, Lidija Ivanovski, said the Government was seeking to create a fairer system and train "thousands more" Victorians to meet the state's skills needs. But TAFE teachers and students yesterday lashed out at the plan, saying it would deter many from entering the system. "This will put TAFE education out of the reach of the ordinary working person in Victoria. To slam working Victorians in this way when most are struggling with mortgages and petrol cost is ludicrous," said Australian Education Union TAFE vice-president Gillian Robertson. National Union of Students president Angus McFarland agreed. "This will mean that people leaving TAFE — who are meant to be skilled up and in turn contribute to the economy — will instead be burdened by debt," he said. The new fee structure will be unveiled as part of the Government's broader plan to tackle skills shortages by getting more people into higher qualifications. Also as part of the plan, the Government will: ■Open up the training market to unprecedented competition, in which public TAFE institutes will have to compete with a growing number of private providers for student funding dollars. ■Create a new "demand-driven" model, under which any person who wants to gain a higher qualification, or any school leaver who wants training and can meet the relevant course requirements, will be guaranteed a place. ■Allow people to take out an income-contingent loan — similar to HECS in universities — meaning they will not have to pay for the full cost of their studies until their annual income reaches about $41,000. State Government insiders say the Federal Government has agreed to support Victoria to become the first state in Australia to create the income-contingent loan scheme, which is tied up with the federal tax system. Yesterday, federal Education Minister Julia Gillard remained tight-lipped when asked, through her spokeswoman, about the extent of Canberra's support, other than to say: "I would be concerned if cost was a barrier for Victorians, which is why we are in discussions with Victoria about the role the Commonwealth can play in helping people upgrade their skills." Victoria has 18 TAFE colleges, which educate almost 400,000 students. However, 1.4 million Victorian adults do not have a post-school qualification.
