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!!
Thinking of moving to Aus with my family, my current position at home is Gas Operations Manager, running large contracts within the domestic gas industry. Could anyone advise how I would go about finding the same or similar lines of work in Aus?
Thank you in advance.
I am new to this so please forgive me if this is wrong! I am wanting to move to Australia asap. I have just finished my Business and maths degree and want to become a teacher. However after working part time in a school I really don't want to teach mainstream and want to teach sen .. I have found this relatively new pgce...
Sen Pgce for further education.
Does anyone know if this alone would qualify me as a Sen teacher in Australia? I will meet the 45 days needed as per below but don't know if a pgce with a sen specialism is enough .

My first post on here - so forgive me if this is in the wrong forum.
I'm in the process of a skills assessment for a pastry cook and recently received a request for video evidence. The thing is I have no such video and there is no way I can get it, as my employers would never allow a camera onto the bakery floor.
My agent says it is highly unusual that they would ask for video evidence as that is one of the more obscure options. What I'm wondering is, has anyone else had a similar experience? How did it pan out? I'm just wondering if they're building up to a rejection?
Thanks for reading!
By Alan CollettMusing on why the Australian Government now appears to preference general skilled visas (subclasses 189, 190, 489) over the permanent employer sponsored visas (subclasses 186 and 187).
The former do not have a guarantee of employment in Australia, and often have difficulty securing a position in their skilled occupation.
The latter are already working in Australia, and are paying income tax.
Surely the better outcome for Australia is a skilled migrant who is employed and is paying tax?
Is it simply that Government can't prosecute the case adequately with the Australian people?
Or are we going to see a scaling back in the general skilled visa program in the next few weeks (eg a raised points threshold)?
We live in relatively uncertain times.
