457 Question regarding School certificate

Recommended Posts

Hello out there

 

My wife and I (and the dog) are emigrating in Dec/Jan to Fremantle WA. (hopefully)

 

I have a job and sponsorship already sorted through an old work colleague. (I'm a Planner)

 

I can't for the life of me find my old Standard Grade results from 1993

Will I need these? They have no relation to the job or my experience.

 

Thanks in advance

If you already have your 457 visa I can not see you needing your standard grade results more not as they have no relation to your job or experience. However I am sure someone will correct me if I am wrong :)

Thanks for the quick reply.

 

The company I will be working for are in the process of applying for my visa (with a migration expert)

 

I don't have the visa yet.

I do know you can for a fee get your old certificates if you do want them. Your need to know the exam board (possibly contact the education establishment to find out which exam board) and if you go on the exam board website there are often links to get new certificates. If the exam board doesn't exist any more, you can contact the modern equivalent e.g. NEAB are now AQA, London are now Edexcel.

 

But I do not think your need them for an unrelated job :)

From what I can remember, the visa application asked for 'post secondary education' qualifications. I didn't include my school results, just my qualifications pertinent to my profession.


RGN (43) OH (47) 2 daughters (6 & 4):hug: AHPRA applied Sept. '11 & granted Jan. '12. Job offer June '12...e457 lodged 23 aug.'12..medical 28 aug.'12.. visa granted 6 Sept.'12!.. Arrived in Oz 4 Nov 2012.....!
