I dont think Hazelanne wants to work in aged care, I think she studied hard, just like Your wife Aussie Steve, and that she probably made alot of sacrifices, so she could become a professional and earn good money one day and feels that you can only go so high as a aged carer without being a nurse. I think it would be difficult for me to come from being at the top of the food chain in a country to doing a non qualified job in a new country and I think if there was anyway of doing chemical engineering or finance people will do it. I think being an aged carer is a noble career, and i have been a disability carer, but if you are studious and a high achiever and dont enjoy the work its good to see what your options are. If it was law I could understand, qualifications were worthless, as every country's law is different, but chemical engineer or finance. Surely they have to have the same principles internationally. It is really sad the government dont do more to utalise these talented people and dont create bridging programs to close the gap.

Hi Davejochow
I understand that sometimes thing on the surface don't seen very fair, however what may seem unjust on further examination may prove reasonable.
One of the biggest hurdles is that some countries have 6 years primary education and only 4 years secondary education ( this is now being addressed by the Philippines with the government now brining in the international standard of 6 years primary plus 6 years secondary)
When my wife attended university here she was amazed at not only the standard required but the course content. She told me that she was surprised here the courses contained only subjects relevant to what was being studied. She told me that in the first year of Engineering in the Philippines they had subjects such as Philippine Heroes, Social Studies, Philosophy, Home Economics and even Physical Education!
Another problem is the lack of a uniform standard for educational institutions.
When my wife sponsored her nephew to migrate here, it transpired that his Engineering Degree only equated to a Diploma here, fortunately his wife had gone to one of the few Universities with international recognition and her degree was acceptable, giving them enough points to migrate.
Also the general level of teaching is questionable, of the last lot of nursing graduates in the Philippines less than 40% passed the Licensing board exam. Imagine the uproar here if 60% of the students failed! This is a common occurrence while few years ago all results for the Nurses board exam were declared invalid due to systemic cheating.
There are bridging courses here for various qualifications depending on experience and the subject being studied.
As far as being on the top of the food chain pride doesn't put food on anyone's table and this country was built by the labours of those who gave up their old life to start a new one here.

Thanks for all you comments and suggestions. Actually, I like my current job right now as a cleaner, its a noble job, i started earning and im happy because i can contribute now with all our expenses especially we have a mortgage, before i came here my husband got a house for us, i just got married last april, and we are both from philippines. I should be proud of my job but I know for myself that I can do more. I just want to have a chance. Maybe in time if i earned more, i can study here. I'll take one step at a time.

Where are you located?

There are a few free courses around that come under the cert 3 guarantee program that are free to 820 holders (different to the one that is free to pr or citizens). They may not be the best courses but it is a start

Have you tried the banks maybe a 12mth position? In your cover letter use your background as an advantage, being about to interrupt other languages in the multi cultural communities in Australia, especially with the ever growing oversea visitors this would be a benefit to their organization. If you would like more advice just email me Id be happy to help.

You will need to complete the course here in Australia.
If you are not a PR the fees are very expensive and the qualifications are of no use to gain a PR.
