Thanks for the post. It's an honest opinion and one that seems to be fair game. I already have my visa as the wife is also a teacher (not GTP trained) and she was the main applicant. However, I will be the main (only) wage earner as we have a baby daughter so she wont be working for a couple of years. The re-training could be a poosibility in the future but I'll need to start earning as my wage will pay the bills, so I guess I need to look at other job opportunities. I guess I still hope that the GTP will become recognised in the future...but I also realise that this is just wishful thinking. So it's just now a case of finding another career, inside education would be good but I suppose anything will do!
