New Points - Study/Work/PR - Teacher

An overseas Registered Teacher (Philippines), with professional work experience (< 3 yrs) requiring only Grad. Diploma of Education (1 year's study, Australia), and high IELTS to be registered in most Aust. states; has not completed a 2 yrs study course enabling a PR application to be successful.
Thus, which options will work best, namely:

(1) Can that professional take a temp work visa (as a teacher) to increase Aust work experience points, OR does the min. 2 yrs study still apply?
(2) Can that professional take on a 2nd one year teacher study option, of which there are many or must the initial study always be a minimum 2 year course?
(3) Is that teacher's only PR option employer (Private, Religious Secondary school) or state (regional) sponsorship?

The new points system proposed for introduction in 2011 will mean changes though not so much to the two years study path that may lead to eligibility for an onshore application.
Have a look at what the requirements are now for the onshore two years study and that will not likely change too much.
Your options could be employer sponsorship temporary/permanent or considering an offshore independent application.

Thanks greatly your feedback. It seems odd that there is so much emphasis on distinction between onshore compared to offshore. Is offshore likely to be much longer, or are there other reasons? Can one start offshore on a temp visit to their originating country?

The distinction is quite clearly to have separate visas depending on whether someone is offshore or onshore and with skilled visas there is a recvognition that sometime studying in Australia will allow people to develop some mutual benefits re their immigration and ability to be assimilated into the workforce in a particular skill in demand as against someone having developed a skill abroad.
If you find you have eligibility for an offshore application you can make an application from anywhere outside of Australia and you will also need to be outside of Australia for an offshore visa to be granted.
Most Immi site pages have a link to a Client Service Charter that gives some indication on processing times and the many reasons for variances.
Also check out latest prioritising information via the What's New page you'll find a link to near top of many skilled visa pages.
