Hi, I'm moving to Adelaide in April and will be looking for horticultural work. I currently work at a land based college in the UK where I teach Hort and manage the grounds. I'm not sure about teaching quals in Oz but for anyone wanting UK skills assessed for AQF Cert III in Hort try Richard Lynch at http://www.recognitionaustralia.com.au/
Richard is a National Assessor in all sorts of horticultural diciplines and worked in liason with Virginia Horticulture Centre just outside of Adelaide to help me
obtain my AQF for TRA skill assessment. He will be able to advise whether your qualifications can be assessed by RPL (recognition of prior learning) to gain the AQF III in Hort. It didn't take me that long to achieve just need to provide all the information for him as and when he requests...I'd absolutely thorougly recommend him.
Good luck everyone searching for work out there right now!
