  1. Hi everyone! My hubby and I are thinking of making the move with our 1 year old. My husband is a gp and I am a special needs teacher so both of our jobs are on the skills list. Overall the aim Is that we are hoping that we will be able to afford a nice lifestyle I.e nice house, 2 cars, holidays but both work part time. Currently I work part time due to childcare costs hubby works full time and is ridiculously stressed all the time. Lots of people in his work place are having breaks downs and he doesn’t get to spend much time with our baby. We have a nice house but that’s where all our money goes we can’t afford holidays and we do have two cars but considering how hard he has worked for the past 12 years they are nothing particularly nice. Basically we feel we are not getting out anywhere near what we put in in the UK and would like to have more time as a family and a decent standard or living. We feel like we are just keeping our heads above water over here. we are currently debating working visa or residency. Residency pros: security we can rent rather than live with friends not limited to 6 month jobs may get permanent jobs and I could then work until I was entitled to maternity leave as we are planning another baby at some point in the future residency cons how much will it cost? - I think it’s a lot of money when it may not work out and we may return after 6 month/a year currently most of our money is tied up in our house in the UK which we are planning to sell but if we needed the funds from the sale we may have to move into rented. There may be ways round this lending the money from family until the house sale goes through but it does involve more risk. Does anybody have any experience/thoughts or advice? If anyone has got PR recently how much did it cost? Also so has anyone done or planning to do agency teaching? What’s they pay like how is it? Has as anyone been employed as a GP or done locum work? Finally sorry i know so many many different things in one thread! Our friends currently live in Freo and love it in terms of the social side as they have found it easy to make friends. By the time we move over they will be in their house in the hills in Bushmead. I think one of the key things that will help is settle is finding somewhere we feel we belong and making friends. We are coming out to scope things out so will obviously narrow it down then. I’m in two minds at the moment if we would be better getting an apartment in Freo that way we can make friends and pay around $400 a week so we can save a bit of money then move into the hills or wherever when we are more settled. Or move straight to a family home near our friends in the hills - which may be better for family life but is it as social? any advice would be greatly appreciated! Best Lauren
  2. Hi all, I have my 189 visa granted (yay!) and I am a qualified teacher with a degree from a UK Uni and over 6 years teaching experience. I am trying to get myself registered with the Teacher Registration Board (TRB) of WA but there is so much conflicting information about which registration I can actually go for! It seems that I cannot get a full registration as I have not taught in Aus yet, but I also cannot go for a limited registration either. Does anyone have any experience with registering themselves? I don't want to ask the TRB themselves as they charge over $300 for advice!!! Any help will be greatly appreciated
  3. Hi all, I'm a Humanities teacher originally from the UK, an Australian permanent resident living in Sydney wanting to move to Perth or surrounding area. I've been teaching in two academically selective, state schools in Sydney over the past 3 years and have 2 years experience teaching in the UK. I love Sydney, however the price of property is just ridiculous! My OH and I are on the verge of having a deposit and starting a family, and have come to the conclusion that we want a garden and beach lifestyle, this is impossible in Sydney unless you have $1,500,000. Anyway, I lived in Perth about 8 years ago, I have family and friends there and feel this is the place to start my family. I'm in the process of registering to teach with the WA education department. I know Humanities jobs are hard to come by, especially by merit selection as there are tonnes of applicants for each position. I would love to stay in the public system, however I am open to going into the private sector if it enables me to move to Perth. Has anyone transferred from NSW to WA? Or have heard of anyone who has secured a job in WA whilst working in NSW? I'm not under any illusions, I know this will be difficult to achieve but it's worth a try! Thanks in advance
  4. Morning all, Have any Secondary School teachers had any success in securing work prior to arrival in WA? The 190 VISA means I would basically be leaving a secure job in the UK with potentially no employment upon arrival in Australia. (although reading the posts on here it looks as though relief/supply work would be available) I wondered how many teachers on here managed to secure employment sponsorship for their visa prior to arrival and have any information / advice as to how they went about it? Any help would be very much appreciated! Thanks in advance, Ryan
  5. Well - we are now the proud owners of two positive AITSL skills assessment certificates (teacher skills assessment)!! Have to say that we were a bit worried, as we graduated over 20 years ago, so it was hard work getting the paperwork together, but AITSL didn't query anything, and were obviously happy with what we sent! AITSL emailed on 5th March to say that they had received our documents. By the 21st May the application tracking page showed 'Application complete' for one of the applications, and two days later the 2nd application had the same message. That was 11 weeks since 5th March. It then took a week for the results and certificates to arrive. The reason for the two assessments was one for the main applicant, and one for partner skills points..... State Sponsorship next..........
