VISA 187 - TAFE occupation

Recommended Posts

@paulhand can you please advise me; I live in Northern Ireland and I am considering emigrating to Australia with my family where my brother has been since 2010.

I am a college tutor teaching beauty therapy qualified to level 4 HNC and I am currently undertaking a level 5 HND. I have been teaching part time since 2012 with a few breaks in between (maternity leave and so on.) Since 2017 I have been continually working for the same college and will continue to do so until I complete my HND (which will be another 2 years) So my plans to emigrate will not be until then but I would like to know where I stand with applying for a 187 visa and what qualifications do I need for a job within a TAFE college in Australia. I have been advised to undertake a skills assessment but before I pay the fee I’d like to know do I have what it takes now to apply.

Thanks

Gem.

The 187 visa is being closed in November and will be replaced by a new Skilled Employer Sponsored Regional (Provisional) visa. You will need your occupation to be on the skills list for this visa at the time you apply and a sponsoring employer. Whether you need a skills assessment will depend on your nominated occupation.

You would need to speak to potential employers about what they are looking for and whether they are prepared to sponsor you.

Thank you for your reply.

My occupation is on the Combined list of Eligible Skilled Occupations 2019 as:

Vocational Education Teacher - 242211 - Regional - VETASSES 

If this is subject to change, would you advise I wait for the new Skilled Employer Sponsored Regional Visa? 

There is so much info out there so I need someone to guide me through the process.

Gem.

Realistically - I think it's unlikely that you would get a 187 sorted out from a standing start before the cutoff. If you wanted a fuller review of all your options, then an introductory session with a Registered Migration Agent, might be of help. All the ones who post regularly on here would be able to assist.

Yes, a fuller review of my options would be of great help.

I have contacted SunCoast and if it’s worth pointing out, I made an error on highest qualification, it is Diploma not IV certificate 😊
