Skilled migration early childhood educator

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

I am new to the forum. 

Could anyone advice if I have to have experience working in a school to apply as an early childhood educator, please? Currently I am in the final year of early childhood education degree and have experience working in a Montessori for three years after obtaning early childhood diploma.

Please help.

Early childhood Teacher is on the list but to get a positive skills assessment you would need 4 years of university. 3yr Bachelor followed by one year PGCE which includes at least 45 days supervised teaching practice. 

Asesssments are carried out by AITSL so perhaps take a look at their website and factsheets.

It it probably best to ask a MARA agent your questions. I can share my experience with AITSL but I think your looking for a bit more in depth.

For AITSL, providing you completed 4 years university education in an English speaking country then you will not need IELTs for skills assessment.. The fours years university need to include supervised teaching practice though.

Hello,

My understanding is that i can get extra 5 points if i complete 1 year of experience in Australia. My question is how many hours per week will be considered a full time experience for early childhood educators?

According to a migration agent, 20 hours per week will suffice and will count as full time, but it is a bit strange, considering that for most occupations full time is equal to 40 hrs per week.

I could not find information about this on AITSL website. Can anyone help with advice or information?

Thanks in advance.

To get the points you need to be "employed in Australia in: (a)  the applicant’s nominated skilled occupation; or (b)  a closely related skilled occupation". "Employed" is defined as "engaged in an occupation for remuneration for at least 20 hours a week". This the legal definition for the points test; it is separate from AITSL's skills assessment,  which doesn't require experience beyond the supervised training.

So even if  I’m studying full time, I can work 20 works per week and claim that as 1 year experience? I’m already a qualified early childhood graduate. And also would I need to get my degree accessed by any other boards other than AITSL? Before I start working ?

That would be a dangerous juggling act if you were on a student visa. You will likely need State registration to be able to teach - there's plenty of info on the AITSL website about onshore accreditation requirements state by state, which is separate to the migration skills assessment process.

Yes, but I’m allowed to work 40 hours a fortnight on student visa.  I’m based in nsw and since I’ll be teaching in daycare/preschool do I still need to get registered with the state teaching board?

Yes - a very dangerous juggling act to hit the max of one condition to achieve the minimum for extra points. I wouldn't risk your student visa (or, for that matter, a future application) on this.

That’s true, but it’s something I definitely need, with the current system making it near impossible to get an invite. Does having a job offer/ working in that profession help with being invited by the state? I’m currently studying towards another qualification, once I receive this qualification, I would no longer work as a teacher, would this be an issue? But would use it to apply for my pr.

Perhaps it's time to have a proper strategy discussion with a Registered Migration Agent based around your specific situation and requirements ... all the ones who post on this forum will be happy to help.
