Skills Matching Database

    Recommended Posts

    Hi guys - just wondered, is it worth going on to this database? We are applying under skilled independent as my hubby is a carpenter. Does this database cover that some of job or is it geared more for professionals? More importantly, does it cost any more on the application if you say you want to go onto the database.

     

    Thanks

    Hi,

     

    Just seen this question and my hubbie applied via the skilled independant and got his details put on the skills matching database and this did not cost any extra at all, just the cost of the visa application.

     

    Hope this helps

    hiya

    we too went skilled independant but was told it wouldnt affect your application if you didnt do it,due to the good response of the few e-mails we have sent to various companys we didnt fill it in ,i think its just personal preference and good luck with whatever you decide

    If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place...

    If you get a chance,take it, If it changes your life,let it. Nobody said it would be easy they just said it would be worth it...

        Hello!!!
        I am currently in the process of organising my skills assessment with VETASSESS (the assessing body for hairdressing here in Oz)... I have a Cert III in Hairdressing (Oz qualification) now.
        Was wondering if anyone has done a skills assessment recently?? I'm unsure what documents I need, do I need to supply ALL of my payslips or just an example from employers to prove full time employment??
        Any help would be so much appreciated! Very stressful!!

        I have two questions regarding skills.
        1) Is education (time spent on university) considered as experience for skill assessment (maybe partially)? To be specific my assessing authority is Engineers Australia.
        2) To get additional points for my partner's skills, her skills must be assessed as well. What happenes if she has only Master's degree and no post-graduate experience, is she still eligible and will I get points? (VETASSES)
        Thanks in advance for help!

        I am a Town Planner working in a Local Authority in the UK.  I am 29 and would like to move to Australia before I am 30.  I have heard for a few years there is a shortage of Town Planners but unsure how likely they would be willing to give someone a chance with only UK experience (8 months from becoming chartered too!).  Are there any planners out there who have been or are in a similar situation?  Is it easy to get sponsored and what is the Australian planning system like to get to grips with?
        Any advice is welcome as I have no idea where to start.

        Hi,
         
        I have been living and working in Australia since February 2015. I have, however, been with my current employer since October 2016. My employers would like to sponsor me for PR, but since I have not been with them for 2 years, I require a skills assessment with Vetassess.
         
        I have 12 years experience in my role, however I am not degree qualified. I have contacted a company called Get Qualified, and they said my experience can be transitioned/recognised as comparable to a Graduate Diploma  - http://qualifyme.edu.au/qualifications/graduate-diploma-of-management-learning/ . This qualification is nationally recognised.
         
        This is actually higher than a Bachelor Degree (Undergraduate program). On Vetassess website, it says that in order to get a positive skills assessment, I require a qualification comparable or higher than a Bachelor Degree for my chosen occupation. So, in theory, if I get this qualification, would that be sufficient for a positive assessment?
