Visa help

Hi there, first time visiting this forum, and hoping to obtain some advice from the people here.

I completed my studies (bachelor's, then grad.dip education) end of 2010 and I was told I needed to obtain my VETASSESS certification before application for permanent residency and so I applied for the subclass 485 visa instead (it is still pending - I am on a bridging visa). I recently realised that I would be unable to apply for my permanent residency unless I obtain 12 months of experience in my nominated occupation (secondary teacher) as the 6 months concession period has lapsed.

Is there any way I can apply for my PR (subclass 885) - which was my original plan - citing the 6 month concessionary period some way or another?

Or will I have to obtain my 12 months worth of teaching experience before I am able to apply for an 885 visa with no other way around it.

The main issue (apart from the time lapse) is that I am currently employed in a wholly different industry. Will there be any issue at all?

To further clarify, I have no problem with meeting any of the points requirement at all (whether 120 or 65), I have a 8.5 score in IELTS, and my VETASSESS occupation is listed as Secondary Teacher (arrived a few months after my 485 application), by then the 6 months had already lapsed.

Apologies for any confusion. First post ever, and just seeking some help and advice.
