If your TRA assessment is OK there is nothing to be nervous about.
There was some media coverage last year about courses not being run so well and even apparently some agents involved in fraudulent documentation for work experience and subsequent TRA and Immigration assessment.

I am not familiar with what the TRA requirements were last year and though they now have a Job Ready Test in place I do not have detailed knowledge of that.
If you have documentation of your volunteer experience and that is acceptable, all you can do with any interview is answer honestly.

If you get your GSM refused and it is not for any reasons where they consider activity occurred that should not have, you'll probably be given a time by which you have had to leave Australia or find an alternate visa, perhaps an employer sponsor visa could be an option for you.

Hi,
I would suggest that you contact the employer who you did your voluntary work for and find out whether they had been questioned by DIAC and what questions they were asked. If it is all legitimate you have nothing to worry about.
Regards,
Dorota

hi
i got interviewd last week ,immigration was very strict,.All they were questioning was about TRA ,they told me that ur employer had given volunteer experience for favour of money ,and in that year there were about 50 people who have got volunteer experience frm there,
so they haven't given me any results officially on that day but told me that I'll get refusal letter in couple of weeks.
Now the problem is I couldn't understand what they said by refusal. Is it visa refusal or TRA refusal.
So what will be the options available for me in case of any refusal.
I don't how to prove my experience genuine as I already got the experience cert. signed by employer.
Now employer is not concerned about this case as he got blamed by other people or he is questioned by the immigration.
i don't know what to do now.. I got student visa till 2011 ,i was locked in 573 diploma leading to degree visa,i did diploma ,applied for PR never continued to study degree
so guys plz help me
what r the options for me

Sounds like from what you've been told your visa application may be refused and the basis for that could be the 50 people all having volunteer experience in one year for what kind of business does this employer have that can handle that many volunteers being actively engaged in getting true experience?.

What occupation have you studied with the diploma and a student visa is usually reliant on a student being engaged in studying and so if your student visa runs to 2011, do you actually have an approved course and a letter of acceptance, for if not it could be that your student visa would also be cancelled.

There is now a Job Ready Test approach that has been introduced for people having studied in Australia and so you should have a read of
http://www.immi.gov.au/skilled/gener.../whats-new.htm and Trades Recognition Australia - Home .
Together with the legality of your student visa continuing you may be able to establish what next?

What you really need to understand though and relate back to future potential students is that there is no automatic link between studying in Australia and being successful with a PR visa application.

The last few years have seen such a great influx of overseas students that many "college"/ experience operations have been established, some possibly best described as being dodgy and thus students like yourself can end up where you do not want to be.
Meanwhile there may be recruiters overseas with connections to less than reputable organisations and the full facts about study in and possible immigration to Australia have not been disclosed.

Towards the end of last year there had been more situations revealed by the media and eventually government departments started more thorough investigations and you have seen what may be just the start of weeding out bad and even fraudulent practices.

You mention your employer is not concerned and perhaps you meant to convey he is not concerned about your situation personally but I suspect he should not be too surprised if authorities do take an interest in his practices.

Hi bhupi,
Your situation is difficult. You have to quickly act and make some choices. With such a strong indication from DIAC that your visa application would be refused you have the following choices:
1. Withdraw your application for PR before it is refused. Once an application for PR is refused you are banned from making another ONSHORE application for PR (there are few exceptions, including Protection Visa, Child Visa and Partner visa). So, if there is a chance that you could find yourself a partner or are already in a relationship then it wouldn't matter whether you are refused, otherwise having a visa refused rather than withdrawn makes a huge difference. After the changes on 1 Jan 2010 for another onshore application for GSM you will need one year experience and a job ready assessment, for an offshore application you will need FOUR years experience.
2. Wait for the refusal letter. If your voluntary experience is genuine then you have an option of applying for a review to MRT. It doesn't matter whether the employer 'sold' experience letters to others. What is important is that YOU actually worked there.
3. In each case it is important that you keep yourself lawful in the country, therefore, try to enrol in your course as soon as possible and keep complying with your student visa conditions. DIAC can't cancel your student visa for reasons other than study attendance, academic achievement and complying with work conditions (no more than 20 hours during course work, etc.). If they do, again, you can apply to MRT for review.
4. Find an employer prepared to sponsor you.
Hope it clarifies some issues for you.
Dorota
