Need some advise. My son wants to get an apprenticeship as a plumber and
was told if he did a pre voc course at Tafe it will goin his favour. However, we applied through SATAC and they said as he was an international student he
would have to apply direct to the college. He spoke to the international dept at the college and they said mmmm a 475 visa well you fall between the lines as you pay
tax as a resident and live here already you will need to speak to ATEC. He rang ATEC and they said you need to speak to SATAC… so the circle begins!!!
We already know we will have to pay the international fees for the course.
He has completed a couple of weeks work experience with a plumbing company and loved it. Can anyone give any advise or telephone numbers to ring
to try and sort this out for him. Any advise/ideas would be great.
