Yes I get what he meant. I was saying that I almost re-did my IELTS for more points but decided not to, and stayed at 75 and was invited really quickly to apply for a visa. 


EOI: 01.01.17

Invitation to apply: 02.01.17

Application submitted: 23.01.17

Medicals: 21.02. PCCs: 03.03

Visa granted 20.03.17

Visa activation trip 3.08.17

Moved to NSW 18.12.18

For teaching it has to be academic. I got invited to apply for the visa really quickly with 75 points in 2016 - 1 day after my EOI was lodged. 

For the AITSL assessment you don’t actually need to pass an English test if your qualifications were completed in the UK (or other English speaking country) though? So the only need for the test is for visa points, in which case the general one can score you maximum points?

It’s impossible to get invited these days, it was so easy back in 2016.

I'm a British trained primary teacher, worked for 15 years in supply and contract work in both the private and public sectors in Brisbane. Happy to help with questions.

Hi Paul, 

I am currently just applying for my PGCE to teach 5-11, I intend to emigrate to Aus with my wife in about 5 years, I'd be very interested to know any tips, etc so that I can be heading in the right direction from day one. Do you come across many ex-pats teaching Primary age in Brisbane?
