Chef/Cook TRA Skills Assessment

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 

My partner (a chef) wants to get a permanent visa for Australia. Right now we are intending on applying for subclass 190, state sponsorship. (If his English test goes really well we might try for subclass 189)

 

We are currently getting the (ENDLESS) paperwork together for his TRA Skills Assessment.

We're struggling to know exactly what to write for Part 8 / his Description Of Your Work (in own words) and exactly what we need in the letters from his employers (how much detail?!).

I would appreciate any tips anyone has and if anyone would share with me their own documents (actual letters, templates, anything) we would be so grateful. Especially other chefs/cooks! Just for ideas and peace of mind, I would never plagiarize!

 

Thank you, Alice

I can't help with the wording but a word of warning. You're using the terms chef and cook interchangeably or as the same thing (i.e. chef/cook) and that could cause problems with your assessment and later with DIBP as Chef is on the SOL and Cook is only on the CSOL. Read the description in ANZSCO that applies specifically to the occupation of Chef and make sure you keep that in mind when writing anything.

A chef is (more or less) a supervisor of cooks. The skill level and the assessment criteria are signifcantly different. A chef will encounter an issue claiming work experience for periods where s/he was performing the duties of a cook and vice versa.

Thank you both for your replies. We're well aware of the difference in definition and how important it is. We're not yet sure if he has the required 3 years as a Chef, and if not we'd be applying as a Cook. And for a 189 not a 190.

You can't apply for a 189 as a Cook because unlike Chef, it is not on the SOL.

On the face of it this post appears to be internally inconsistent.

 

Best of luck with whatever you decide to do.
