Cool new life in Oz dependant on state/territory & employer sponsorship


I have just joined the forums.

We would love to move to Australia, most likely Perth. I am a children & families counsellor and my partner is a Geology student. We have a 2 year old daughter.

We are hoping to get a employer sponsored visa for a geologist but looks like my partner would have to get 20 points for English to pass the immigration points test. (Only achieve 60 points if only get 10 points for competent English). Unless we can get 5 points for skilled partner (my occupation is on schedule 2 of SOL but VETASS state that I am not eligible as I have a degree in unrelated subject and only a diploma in counselling and certificate in CBT).

If anyone has any knowledge/experience of gaining sponsored visa without achieving 65 points, it would be much appreciated to hear your stories and to find out if this is at all possible
