  1. Just saw this on FB-- thought Ill share-- dedicated to the wonderful nurses here on PIO.
  2. Hi, I'm currently doing a TRA Migration Skills Assessment. I'm a chef. On the work in your own words, (part 8), it says to include duties or tasks undertaken. I could write a whole encyclopedia on this, so which shall I include. Shall I just use examples from across the board using varied cooking techniques? Is it just examples required?? Now I think I'm obsessing over this:arghh:. Thanks.
  3. Hi all, In a TRA skills assessment, one part is to "explain your work in your own words". Can this be typed in word documents and signed after printing, or does it need to be done on Statutory Declaration forms. Or maybe it needs to be certified by a JP. Does anyone know the best way to do this. I know I'm posting all the time! I've just "hit a wall" in my skills assessment. Thanks :biggrin:
  4. Got my IELTS tomorrow. Can't say that I am, in any way what so ever excited about the prospect. Any last minute advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Words Cannot Convey My Anger

    Words Cannot Convey My Anger right now I'm absolutely fuming !!! Just had two letters back from my CO the first quite normal saying has all the documents I sent & is requesting a medical. The second says Re;Unclassified, & says again he requests a medical & will be placing the received transcript in my file, I look at this email & at the bottom of the page is a letter supposedly from my email, "written by me" to a woman I've never heard of saying I'll be in OZ soon & then goes on to mention things I supposedly hadn't disclosed to DIAC & how it shouldn't be a problem & then signs off with an abbreviation of my name I never use. then sent to some chinese email company used by spammers then forwarded to my CO . I suspect I know who has done this & I pity them for this petty vindictive unjustified action. I've written to my CO & explained I have no knowledge of this letter & presume it to be a vindictive letter intended as sabotage & even though it must be now included in my file, please be aware that my account has been hacked. There is no point being emotional with DIAC. So I've just stated the facts as I'm aware of them. However the person who has done this to me has no justification for their petty behaviour. I don't know what I have done to cause a person to treat me in this manner ? I lead a quiet life & keep myself to myself. So why try to mess things up for me ? Thorn is raging right now & is disgusted beyond words that someone who knows nothing of us as a couple has taken this action because they don't approve of me or my choices, or wishes me ill . :mad: Has anyone experienced anything like this ???
  6. Hi all Whilst i am waiting for VETASSESS and IELTS results i have started looking at what is needed for the State Sponsorship application with SA. It seems nice and straight forward, but i just wanted some advice from people who have successfully gained state sponsorship in Sa about what they had included in their statement. I was going to include the following: improved work prospects improved work/ life balance and lifestyle better future for my children have researched of other states, but SA appeals comments and tips welcome!

  13. sorry to moan but just need some words of encouragement. We've been here since July and OH still can't get any work. He's so fed up I think he's ready to forget the whole thing and go back home. Trouble is I love it here. We have 2 kids 16 and 10 and after a lot of sadness at leaving the UK they are starting to settle. I really don't know what to do. I don't want to move areas (we're in Noosa) because the kids are happy at school. Is there anything OH is doing wrong he's a CNC machinist and a TQ Boiler maker Welder although he hasn't done it in a while. He's starting to get so depressed he has applied for all sorts of jobs and is being turned down for everything . He's tried all areas Gympie, North Brisbane and the Hinterland any where else I think is too far to travel . anybody any suggestions. I'm working but not full time and one wage doesn't go very far. It just seems so hard and that all the odds are against us. My Dad died in uk a few weeks ago and I couldn't afford to see him. :cry:

    words of advice needed!

    Hi All Havent been here since Jan when the ex refused permission for me to bring 16 year old daughter til she finished school. OK.. accepted that and now plan to head to Brisbane in July 2010 with my daughter and OH who would need to come on my visa as he is not on skills list (im a nurse). We dont live together at present because of his mad ex :wacko:.. reason being that if he moved into my place she would make life very difficult at weekends when he has access to his 2 kids and Im just not putting up with her antics. On top of that my 16 year old not happy with them being in our home every weekend for the same reason. We have been together 3 years and planning on marrying in 2011 but we cant prove de facto cos of our living arrangements. As well as this OH is starting a course next January in Outdoor Pursuits Instruction, its his life dream to do this and being made redundant spurred him to do it. The course is til following November so he couldnt follow me out til then anyway. Can anyone help me with the visa dilemma? Sorry if this is long winded, Im just all tangled in knots right now.. :wideeyed: Thanks for reading!

    Words of wisdom, please

    We've been planning to move to Oz since Sept this year. I'm originally from South Africa and new 100% that I didn't want to 'grow old' there. I travelled/worked a bit until I met (and married) hubby over here. I've become unsure whether to go to Oz now or not. It's extremely costly and neither of us has actually been there (and can't afford to check it out first). We feel the pressure to decide soon as we've got an agent on the payroll at the moment and we've paid for the TRA. We have a house to sell in this horrible housing climate and 3 kids. Everything seems to cost a lot (living and moving costs etc.). My family have moved over here from South Africa and hubby is close to his family and hasn't ever had to leave them the way I've left mine before. How great is it really in Oz? How do you make the decision? I should know because I've done a big move years ago, but I was on my own then. Not so easy when you have others to consider!

    Aussie words

    Was reading another thread about people not wanting to use ozzie words got me thinking . i know that flip flops are thongs and sweets are lollies would love to know what they call other things . dont think i could ever get use to calling sweets lollies though .... karen
  19. Apologies if this has had an airing before , but it is such useful info............. 1.) Fine: This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up. 2.) Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house. 3.) Nothing: This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end in fine. 4.) Go Ahead: This is a dare, not permission. Don't Do It! 5.) Loud Sigh: This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about nothing. (Refer back to #3 for the meaning of nothing.) 6.) That's Okay: This is one of the most dangerous statements a woman can make to a man. That's okay means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake. 7.) Thanks: A woman is thanking you, do not question, or Faint. Just say you're welcome. 8.) Whatever: Is a women's way of saying F@!K YOU! 9.) Don't worry about it, I got it: Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has told a man to do several times, but is now doing it herself. This will later result in a man asking 'What's wrong?' For the woman's response refer to #3.

    What words?

    Hi Finally we've instructed our Agent. Full steam ahead now, this site will definately keep me sane:eek: I knew that I need my ex husband permission to take our children out of UK, he's agreed to do this, the girls asked him themselves and he said 'YES':biggrin: What my Agent says now, is that I should arrange for my ex to issue a statutory declaration, witnessed by a solicitor. Ive searched the Web and this site but cant seemed to find a 'template' I could use. I want to do one on my computer, then book an appointment for my ex at a Solicitor to get it witnessed. Can anybody help:idea: Debbie x PS Need help with OH TRA but thats another post:rofl:
