My wife and i are looking to move to the Adelaide area in January 2016. We are both secondary teachers here in the UK (My wife - Science, me- Business, Economics and ICT). We are reluctant to move without jobs but seen to feel it is impossible to find a job before emigrating as certain documentation cannot be obtained without being in the region. Is it possible to obtain employment (i.e. in the independent sector) without the child protection training and first aid training needed? We anticipate moving at the end of December so would have a month to obtain the relevant documentation. Also, are there job opportunities in these areas? I get the impression that the economy is struggling at the minute and jobs are hard to come by.
I have registered with some agencies and sent our CV's to some schools. However, I am wondering if paying for the visa has been a big mistake.
Any help and guidance would be massively appreciated.
