Negative outcome based on qualification

Recommended Posts

Hi

I am an internal auditor and I have been working at the same place since 2009, however when I applied for assessment ofmy skills at vetassess, it was rejected on the grounds that the requirement for my skill should be comparable Australian bachelor's degree but my qualification (B.Sc Finance - University of Ilorin, Nigeria) was assessed as AQF associate degree. I will like to know whether I can appeal or if anybody has had my experience in the past.

You might want to check the CEP for the current standing of  your qualification from the University of Ilorin.

I also got a negative skills assessment from Vetassess - down to not having enough learning hours in my qualification apparently (but nowhere in their guidelines do they mention this)...

The irony is if I hold the right to live/work in Australia my qualification is actually accepted by the governing body - allowing me to work in my field! Vetassess sadly, doesn't take in to account the different avenues of 'guided learning' life experience, volunteering; etc they are only interested in the classroom time attached to a qualification nor do they accept any form of RPL.

If you decide to go for a re-assessment/appeal I wish you luck.
