Skill assessment

Recommended Posts

I am making an enquiry on behalf of my Daughter who lives in the UK. She is a early years  teacher and has been for the past 8 years. She is about to start applying for Visa to Australia to be near myself, husband and sister after recently having a baby.

she has a BA in Primary education which was 3 years and a year ago did a PGCE. She has  more than the 45 days of practical observations. 

Her PGCE has been carried out part time but has the same units/ credits as full time study.  Will this be enough to get her skills assessment passed with aitls?

That should be ok, but she probably can't claim point s for experience gained prior to completing the pgce

Hi thanks for the reply. She has enough points for the visa it was more for the aitslthat she needed. She did not want to put in for it if she was going to get knocked back because of the the study time.

Points are very important now. Having enough for minimum isn't enough. At present she needs 75 to get an invite

Part time study which is equivalent to full time study should be fine for the assessment, as long as they can establish equivalence.
AITSL will require certificates and transcripts of all qualifications, including evidence of the supervised teaching practice.

What PGCE did she do and what visa would she apply for?

She carried out PGCE in primary 3-7 years. But it was part time over a year. So she has done 3 years full time and 1 year part time at uni. Has more than enough observed teaching hours in her training ?  It's the uni time that's concerning her, it's not 4 years full time

That would probably be a stumbling block in that case unfortunately. Perhaps a registered migration agent could offer some advice on any options available

I think it should be fine. Coz a pgce is considered as one year. Did she ended up applying for her pr?
