TRA skill assessment

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone just after some advice if anybody can offer any, or have been through the TRA skill assessment.

 

My partners skill qualification is dated March 2015, but his apprenticeship certificate is dated April 2015. Which one would TRA deem as the qualified from date? He done a City & Guilds Level 2 NVQ diploma in plastering.

 

He had a year out of plastering so his 3 years experience is coming up next March, which is when we want to lodge the skill assessment. Or should we wait until April?

I know it’s only an extra month but with the way immigration are making changes we’re really eager to get the ball rolling!

 

Thanks!

Have you checked his qualification is sufficient as a number of trades NVQ 2 is not and they require nvq3

Yes have checked that with a registered MA. Also found this on TRA faq’s. e4ab00e26cd074bdbff031fae6f177fe.jpg

TRA should go by the date on the qualification award certificate.

Regarding the qualification, yes, they *might* accept an NVQ 2, but in many cases they don't, so this is a risky one I have to say. However, if you accept this, and accept the risk as a $1000AUD punt, then there is only one way to find out for sure, and that is to apply.

Regards,

Richard

Thanks for the reply Richard.

Do you happen to know what the case would be where they do accept a city and guilds NVQ 2? Or on the flip side, they don’t accept?

Thank you
