Hi, hoping someone can answer my question. We are in the middle of applying for SS and OH has just passed his skills test as a mechanic. We are getting the visa based solely on his occupation, no points are coming from my occupation as a primary teacher.
My question is this: once we arrive, can I just register as a teacher in South Aus, do the required first aid and police checks and start doing relief work or do my skills need to be assessed by AITSL, the oz teacher skills assessment agency? Our migration agent says no as we are not using my occupation for the visa but I wanted to check as don't want to arrive and then find out that I do need to do it as it will be so much harder to get all the required paperwork over there. Am really hoping I don't have to have skills assessed as it's more money to spend out and another load of paperwork to deal with!!
Anyone know the answer to this?
Thanks for reading!
