    I now my O/H had to prove 5 years work experience for his occupation as that was why we had to wait until March last year so he had completed the 5 years. It was work experience they wanted not apprenticeship. Has she got 5 years?

    Hi

     

    My wife is on a student visa learning to be a hairdresser. There are a lot of British hairdresser's at the college who either passed in UK or had some experience but they don't recognise the courses over here. I had to sit my HGV driving test again other people we know had to sit there physiotherapy exams again and it is not cheap. We paid a lot of money to come over and put my wife through the college. You can be fast tracked if you are any good. Only been here 8 months its been hard but glad we did it we have another year and half to go before it gets any better. On student visa's we can only work for 20 hours a week very difficult to get work with those hours.

     

    look up Clipjoint School of Hairdressing. hope this helps.

     

    John
