Hello everyone.

Just another person trying to make the move to Australia. But, apparently, I am in good company.

I am a secondary school teacher with qualifications for French, English and Drama. I am hoping to move to Queensland about this time next year. I have been dreaming of moving downunder for quite awhile. I am so glad that there are sites like this where a person can glean some information.

Secondary school teachers are on the SOL#3 Mizbeh and some if not all states may put them on their State Migration Plans which will accord you higher priority for application processing, so yep, have a look at info on the Immi site and there are sticky thread links in the Visa section you may have noticed.
You will find more info about processing priority and the new eligibility points system to be brought in next year on the What's New Link you will find on Skilled – Sponsored (Migrant) Visa (Subclass 176)
Queensland in common with most states have been dragging the chain on getting their SMPs announced and it'll be interesting to see state comparisons for if occupations are not on a SMP, that state may struggle with timely international migration/recruitment.
Using the State sponsorship link on the above page you can access the current Queensland Occupations Sponsorship List and SMP may not be too dissimilar.
Eligible skills for the permanent residence visa

So you may want to hunt through the different states to see which ones will have secondary teaching on their SMP.
There are other options like seeking employer sponsorship and if you have your teaching qualifications approved which you will need to do for teaching in any state and you are young enough to get a Working Holiday Visa, you may want to consider that to get into Australia and perhaps initially pick up some relief teaching and maybe sponsorship could come from that.
You could even put in a 175 non SMP application to have that in the queue awaiting processing, still come on a WHV and even get employer sponsorship.
