just a quicky, with the sponsorship it states that you must be employed full time for 12months out of 24months, is this in any occupation or does this have to be a trade that the go out on?
Not sure on the sponsership bit but for the visa application to get the points it has to be the skill you are going out on :)
sorry being really thick today, so you have to work for the 12months in the trade that you go out on? or can you work for the 12 months in ANY job.

If you are talking about work experience for TRA, sponsorship, or visa application it has to be work in the trade you are applying for or closely relatied one, i hopefully will be going as a painter and decorator for nearly 10 years I have been a property maintenace operative for a large builder I just explained this envolved large amounts of painting and this was acceppted.
Hope this helps
From what we could make out, it Doesn't have to be the trade you went on but it does need to be on the skills list to qualify for PR, The Modl list would probably be best. Part of the reason we're looking at Mark doing an Electricians coure or a Tilers course before we go.
Especially as we haven't seen a great deal of Structured cabling jobs avertised.
If you do not work in the occupation you got your skills assessed in when you get here you have to prove you have tried to get work in that area when you go for PR and explain why you are not working in that field :)
