Moving from the UK - where to start

My husband have decided to apply for permanent residency in Australia for ourselves and our two children (aged 3 and 1). I am a teacher and he is a Health Promotion officer at the moment. We also have a dog.

We are starting to save up while we get things in order before applying for our visas and we were wondering if anyone could give us some advice. We've looked at How to Move to Australia. Looking at the Process, Start to Finish. so we think we know the process, however we're not sure what we need to have at hand before we even start. Also, if anyone would mind giving us a rough estimate of how much it cost for them to move (from start to finish), so that we know approximately how much we will need to save up, that would be much appreciated.

We're so excited about moving although we know it is going to take a while so we are trying to keep our feet on the ground as much as we can.

Hi MrsSpud, if you google move to australia there are many different sites that will help you get an idea. As for work out here, you being a teacher will have no problem what so ever as we have a serious teacher shortage. Hubby wont have a problem finding work either, although his profession l know little about, but there is good work for thoses that want it in sales, and marketing in many fields including health funds etc...

We've had a look on the visa bureau website and I could get a job off the skilled occupation list (Early Years/Pre-school teacher which I think is like the UK's Early Yeas/Reception class) and my hubby has seen a job on the consolidated sponsored jobs list but has also seen one on an Australian job site.

Do you know where is a good place to research the Australian school system so I can find a bit out about your schools before I finally move over there? Cannot wait!
