Unhappy Claim Partner Points | Visa 189

I'm falling short of 5 points to file EOI for Visa 189. My question is related to claiming partner points. I've had my skills assessed by ACS as I filed for Computer Network & System Engineer. My wife is a Primary School Teacher, so my question is can I have her skills assessed by Australian Institute of Teaching and School Leadership (AITSL) ? Will I get 5 points for this ?

Hi Scrapydoo,

I was researching on the same thing earlier and found this response below from Mark in another thread. Hope this helps. So in short, your wife's occupation should be in the same SOL list as yours. in that case you can claim 5 points for partner skills provided you get a positive skills assessment from the assessing authority and also proof of functional english.


In order to receive partner points (5), an applicant's partner must at the time of invitation:
* Have a qualifying occupation on the same list (SOL or CSOL) that the applicant has, AND
* Be under 50 years of age, AND
* Have a positive skills assessment from the skills assessment organisation nominated by DIAC for their occupation.

DIAC has no specific experience requirements for partner points, however most skills assessment authorities have minimum experience requirements in order to be granted a positive skills assessment, so that's the place to look.

Regarding the mention of functional English this may be true for a secondary applicant for a skilled visa, however to get a positive skills assessment as a primary school teacher she needs IIELTS Academic 7's Writing and Reading and Academic 8's in Listening and Speaking.
