finding this site very useful so decided to join today. I'm just at the skills assessment stage so have got a long way to go before i'm able to leave these shores. Going alone but have family in Adelaide so hopefully i'm not too crazy and will pick up a few friends along the way. Even though i've only just started the process, i'm already counting the days!
I'm a primary school teacher and there seem to be a few of us hoping to try our luck in Adelaide .. their systems seem a little confusing, but i'm gradually working out what i need to do to teach over there.
welcome to PIA everyone is very freindly and you can usualy find someone to help.
I am not a teacher but I know their are quite a few out their. Good luck with your paperwork as from what the other teachers post it seems to be quite "protracted":o
Good luck anyway and I hope things run smoothly.
Just wanted to welcome you to PIA, and wish you well on your voyage to the other side of the world. It is a long trip, but seems to be very worth the while as many people are saying who have already reached that end.
Keep us posted and let us know when you're assessment comes though, we like to keep up with everyone here.
Hi there welcome to PIA! a great source for resourcing anything you can't find else where!
good luck with all the paperwork - it will all be worth it in the end :D
Am sure as a teacher you are on overload with paperwork all the time,
we are a friendly bunch all in the same boat -trying to get out of this rat run we call life!
not a teacher myself either but still, good luck with the whole process!
i am sure there are others who can answer all your questions :)
we are only at the beginning ourselves ;)
thanks for the warm welcome. i can really sense everyone's excitement .. how do you keep focussed on normal life here while your heads are in the clouds .. i'm struggling with that already and i've got ages to go yet!
i've learnt lots about teaching over there just by reading all the messages already on here in the education section, as well as checking the SA Gov website so thats saved me a bit of time later.
I'm a Primary teacher! I'm in my second year teaching year 4. We're going on my husband's occupation cos I've not been teaching long enough. We sent our TRA off this week! My Mum, Dad and brother are all coming too and I have some family in Australia. I find it really hard to concentrate on OZ stuff during term time so rarely get to visit PIA. My school is one form entry so I have lots to do for my year group.
We've hired an agent to take off the load and my husband, although an enemy to my computer, is trying his best with a lot of the paperwork.
Hope all goes well for you, Welcome to the site.
Rachael. xx. :D
Welcome to PIA :) everyone here is a friendly bunch so just shout with anything you need help with
snap..i'm a year 4 year 4 teacher in my second year, but i'm being sponsored on the 138 visa – Skilled Australian Sponsored, so i've taught for long enough thank goodness. i'm busy writing 31 school reports at the moment. i know what you mean about not being able to concentrate during term time, i told my agent to send me my list of 'to dos' during half term for the next stage just so i could get some bits done now.
