How long did it take for your AASW assessment to be approved?

Recommended Posts

First time poster 👋

 

I am a qualified social worker, and I am about to send documents to AASW (just waiting for a new passport- wouldn’t have been a delay if Royal Mail hadn’t lost my old one 👀). What is the average waiting time for AASW to approve?

 

Thank you

Victoria 🙂

I see Eagle2020 you decided to take your comment off, however I have just come across it in my emails. So, just commenting on your original post that you have then perhaps edited- I care, and hence why I posted.

Hi There!

 

I too have been looking into this - the AASW site says around 20-28 weeks so around 5-7 months. Quite a while eh! Did it take you long to get your docs together?

Hey! 
 

It wasn’t too bad in getting all the documents together. The IQA form is really self explanatory, and does give a list of documents you need to send off to be assessed. I am still waiting for my new passport to be approved, so I can send a certified copy. It was also probably helpful that I am still in contact with my academic tutor who was able to verify my university documents.

Hi!

According to the AASW website, approximate processing times are :

  • Mutual Recognition Agreements with New Zealand – three weeks
  • Migration applications for new graduates who have completed study at an accredited AASW social work course – three to four weeks
  • Temporary Graduate Visa (TGV) application – three to four weeks
  • International Qualifications Assessments (IQA) and/or Skilled Employment (SE) applications – 20-28 weeks
  • Skilled Employment (SE) applications – three-four weeks
  • Renewal of previous migration assessments – two weeks
  • Duplication of previous assessments for and/or eligibility for AASW membership for employment purposes – two weeks

Sent my application on the 19th of January, but have not received any update until now.
