Advice on skilled migration visa

Hello, My brother in India wants to lodge a application to migrate to Australia on the basis of being skilled inteaching at a secondary school level.
He has done BCA(Bachelors of Computer Application) and he is currently in
his final year of doing MCA.For the last 5 years he has been working as a computer teacher in a highschool. He also takes care of the school's IT department. Problem is that for the skills test for teachers, it asks for an initial year of study relating to teaching. He doesnt have this because in india they just let you teach without first making you study about how to teach.

Anyone have any idea what he can do? Can he do a course about how to teach now & then apply to migrate to australia? could he do a course here in australia?

H e does need to meet the Australian teaching qualifications assessment requirements and if there are courses available that he can consider in India, that'll likely be far cheaper for him.
You may want to contact Teaching Australia on his behalf and see if they have had any experience re approving teachers from India that have a technical background and that way he may be able to find an appropriate course.

It is also possible that he may be able to seek a student visa to study here in Australia though that is a much more expensive option.
