    Hi Bills,

    A useful site might be www.work.sa.gov.au which will take you to immigration's skills assessment pages. Usually, qualifications don't quite match up and some studying is required at international student rates (extortionate) if on temp/provisional visa, but not on permanent visa. Hopefully your qualifications will stand you in good stead and won't involve too much hassle. Good luck.

    The Skills Recognition Support Services , Level 1 East, TAFE SA, Adelaide City Campus, 120 Currie St, Tel 08 8207 8354.

    They base the assessment on guidelines published by the National Office of Overseas Skills and Recognition in the Country Education Profiles

     

    Good luck

    Maria

    my experience is that they are stumped when you mention a UK qual. Speaking with the lecturers will get you on the right track.

    i didnt hve any problem getting NVQ 3 in Direct Training and Support recognised, took approx 30 mins and left with a statement saying its eqiv to AQF cert IV. Though it might depend on which educational institution was used for the qualification.

    Hi,

     

    This is the address we were told to go to as well. It's part of the Immigration (Adelaide Skilled Processing Centre) complex.

     

    Very helpful they are too.

     

    Cheers.
