Almost a year! Skills assessment

Recommended Posts

Applied to AASW for my social work degree in February this year and still nothing.  Agency say they do they in set months but this is taking far longer than expected.  Anyone else wait this long?

That seems unusual, mine took 12 weeks. Have you tried to call and check up on why there is a delay?

I've emailed them and awaiting reply.  Are you still going through visa process?  Be good to connect with other social workers.

Yes, it can take 32 weeks in some cases!

They now assess via seasonal assessment rounds, Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter rounds.

Thanks for your reply, It is such a long time.

Hi sorry I have realised my information may be out of date as I have been here 18 months now, they must have changed the process. That is a very long wait, even with the 32 weeks it is still delayed.

I have been living in Melbourne, but recently moved up to mid north NSW coast. I am a social worker for adults, the system here is very different. Let me know if you have any questions.

Wow, that's a long wait! 

Hope it speeds up a bit for you.

They just received my submission today 26/4/2019. Here is what they said in the email:

“Please be advised that we are at the point of assessing application that were deemed complete and progressed to pending assessment as of August 2018.”

Based on what others mentioned in the forum probably its gonna take up to 9-10 months now.

Thanks for  the update , they are too too slow , after charging so much they are not delivering , other evaluation associations are taking 10-12 weeks which is justified . they are working on 28 weeks + . lets hope for the best
