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

Hi you can register with the TRBWA on a non practising registration until you move and work in Australia then you transfer over to a practising one after a few weeks of working over there I believe. Without having a registration it will be difficult to get a job. Hope that helps?

Hi,

I went through this a few months ago when I moved over. You have to get non-practicing registration first, this will enable you to start teaching (provided you have applied for a WWCC). When you have completed your first day teaching (even relief work) you send the TRBWA a 'Notice of Teaching' form. One you have taught for a minimum of 100 days you can then apply for Full-registration. If you need any more info. about registration, or teaching here in general, just let me know. Happy to help!

You apply for the card at the post office - they take your photo - your receipt is proof that you have applied for your card which is then posted out to you.

      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
