Help with trade assessment!

Hi All

I said goodbye to my mum and dad this morning they have followed their dream in moving permanently to Australia. I really want to follow them but have a few questions

We were hoping to move to Australia on a Skilled Sponsored Visa using my husbands trade (manager of a sign writing company) but unfortunately this has been removed from the new SOL.

I am a Welfare Centre Manager and have been for 5 1/2 years. I emailed VETASSESS who were most unhelpful and basically they stipulate I need a bachelors degree which I don't have. I do hold other qualifications and they wouldn't tell me if these would be suitable.

I then checked out the ANZSCO list for Welfare Centre Manager and because this trade is classed as Skill Level 1, they state that experience can be taken into account without the Bachelor Degree.

Does anyone know if trade assessments will be carried out based on the ANZSCO descriptions???

Thanks!!

I imagine that given the new list of occupations that will comprise the Immi SOL are ANZSCO classified, once that SOL becomes effective, assessments ought to be mad against that.

Right now the existing SOL is what VETASSESS are bound by as are any other assessing organisation as the new SOL is not scheduled to be introduced until July01 and so VETASSESS are still likely referring to ASCO listings.
Welfare Centre Manager 1299-15 - Australian Skills Recognition Information , thus
Quote:
The entry requirement for this occupation is a bachelor degree or higher qualification. In some instances relevant experience is required in addition to the formal qualification.

Note: If you are seeking a skills assessment for skilled migration purposes, different skill level requirements may apply. For information on skills assessment, see the relevant skills assessing authority below.
That is different to 1220.0 - ANZSCO - Australian and New Zealand Standard Classification of Occupations, First Edition, Revision 1
Quote:
Most occupations in this minor group have a level of skill commensurate with a bachelor degree or higher qualification. At least five years of relevant experience may substitute for the formal qualification. In some instances relevant experience and/or on-the-job training may be required in addition to the formal qualification (ANZSCO Skill Level 1).
There will I suspect be introductory teething issues many assessing organisations will be facing but skills assessment is a separate function to that of Immi and it will be up to the relevant assessing organisations as will be nominated on the new SOL [ I'll still expect it to be VETASSESS ].

You may wish to pursue the difference with them though like all official organisations they may not comment other than that they cannot until the new SOL and ANZSCO are implemented - July01.
Please post response when/if you do get a policy indication.

Meanwhile, you ought to have your parents primed up to look at employer sponsorship opportunities for both your husband and yourself once they are in Australia for that may well be the best route of immigration for you.
