welfare advice for welfare worker skills assessment

Hi,
Has anybody completed the skills assessment for welfare worker, category a or b with a Diploma in Social work. Im currently facing the challenge of category b. Answering the core competences is tough and is taking ages. Any advice or tips would be great, thanks

I got assessed by ACWA as a welfare worker. I have a degree in social care. I can't remember exactly what I wrote but got a very quick reply. I know I sent in all references for all work experience and wrote maybe three paragraphs on my duties in each position.
Hope this helps.

That's fantastic, thank you. Did you pass? I am writing 2-3 paragraphs for each. I hold the DipSW qualification which is why im not applying to practice a SW as it is not recognised over there. How come you are not opting for Social Work with your degree?

What are your next steps? Sorry to bombard you with questions. Thank you for responding

I got assessed as a welfare worked. I'm going back now to get reassessed by ACWA as a welfare centre manager, as welfare worker if off most lists.
As my degree was social care not social work I couldn't get assessed as a social worker.
Where is your qualification ?

oh right I see now. I have the higher diploma in Social Work so over here I can practice as a Social Worker but have always chosen not to due to the immense pressure. I am just completing my skills assessment for welfare now, its so difficult. Did you get a pass? Fortunately I want to move to Perth and welfare worker is or was a few weeks ago, still on the list for western Australia...I best check. Fingers crossed

Thanks for your reply

I passed no problem. I think if your information and documents are ok , you will pass too.
I think welfare worker is on the "off list" for state sponsorship in Western Australia also.

Why don't you get assessed as a social worker to get your visa? As long as you are NOT sponsored by a state of employer, you can work in any job anywhere in Australia, not just as a social worker.

Hi,
I have just seen it has changed to schedule 2 and i'm devastated. Does this mean my chances are slim of being nominated? I don't fully understand the difference other than I need a employer sponsor?

My Diploma in Social Work is not recognised over there which is why I am or was opting for welfare work. all these hurdles!!!!!

Same happened to me this week. Which is well I'm getting re assessed as a welfare manager.
Have you any experience in a leadership / management role?

Im happy you have a second option, good luck with it. I don't have any experience with a management role...I have supervised but that's all. Its so disappointing, I ve had all these plans for months and now they ve almost been shattered. Im trying to get clarity on what chances I have now its moved to schedule 2 but not getting any clear answers....community worker was an potion but that's gone completely.
