    Hi,

    just a little question and need some advice

    im piggy backing on my wifes 175 visa application, so i havent needed to get my own qualifications assessed

    BUT i know ill need to do it when i get there

     

    i know of vetessas and the welfare unions, but they dont seem to know either

    BUT how do i go about it and with whom do i get them assessed by?

     

    i am a professionally qualified youth worker with a PG dip & degree, and all the other necessary training with it

     

    any help would be great

    thanks

    Hi Devon,

     

    Go to http://www.immi.gov.au/asri/ and type in your job title to search. I searched "Youth Worker" (ANZSCO code 411716) and found this page: http://www.immi.gov.au/asri/occupations/y/youth-worker.htm, which confirms the correct assessment authority is Vocational Education and Training Assessment Services (VETASSESS). Their website is http://www.vetassess.com.au/.

     

    Looking at their site (http://www.vetassess.com.au/migrate_to_australia/assess2_my_qualifications.cfm), they've suspended applications until 01/07/12, to ensure they complete their backlog before the new SOL/ENSOL lists are published for the forthcoming year. According to this page http://www.vetassess.com.au/migrate_to_australia/qa2_nominating_occupation.cfm, youth worker is a group C occupation.

     

    I reckon that's enough fodder for you to get to the correct application forms & associated costs.

     

    Good luck,

     

    Jess
