  1. Hi All In 2013 I wrote a post on teaching in Australia: The process explained. I updated it again in 2015, but some of those links are outdated and since the post is still helping teachers until this day, I thought I would do an updated version to help everyone out. Here is an explanation for teachers from South Africa who want to teach in Australia. There might be information here and there that might be/might not be applicable to your process. Also, teachers who have been through the process, please feel free to add to this post! Step 1 Apply for unab
  2. Hi everyone I am a Grade 7 mathematics teacher currently working in Pretoria. Can you please explain the difference in teaching in SA to Australia? How many children on average is in a class? Is the curriculum similar to that of South Africa? Thank you again for all the feedback.
  3. Hi all. Would like to know if there is anyone who has registered with the NSW education dept recently. I would like to get this done now as I have been given sponsorship in the Southern inland. Under the 489 visa. I have also registered with the ministry of education, could I use this registration to register with the dept? Any info will help. Thanks in advance.
  4. Hey everyone! My name is Uli and I'm from Cape Town. I have recently decided to move back to Australia permanently, if possible. When I first moved to Australia, I lived in Melbourne, specifically Brunswick. Loved the city, but I was on a Working Holiday Visa and needed to do the mandated 88 days of rural work. I moved to King Island and worked at the King Island Dairy cheese factory. Fantastic cheese and awesome little island! Seems like there were more cows than the estimated 1000 people on the island. I ended up liking the island even more than the city, so I staying there for
  5. Hi all, Hoping someone could clarify something for me. Early Childhood Educator is on the SOL. According to AITSL website to qualify as an ECE you must be qualified to teach ages 0 - 8. I have my PGCE in Foundation Phase, which qualifies me to teach ages 6 - 9. Would this be considered sufficient to be positively assessed for an Early childhood teacher? Thanks in advance!

    Early Childhood Teachers

    Hi everyone, found this while I was trolling Seek for work. Thought it may be useful to someone who may need extra points through sponsorship. Check out this job on SEEK: Teacher early childhood - sponsorship visas - Australia from Randstad - Education - https://www.seek.com.au/job/36080726
  7. Hi All My wife and I are teachers in QLD and we're looking to make the move to WA, probably at the end of this year if things work out. I know it's still early in the year in terms schools' recruitment processes etc. but I thought it a good idea to get the ball rolling ASAP. Ideally we'd like to be in either Perth or at a school/schools outside of Perth (more than happy to live and work 1 - 2 hours away in a smaller location) I'm a secondary teacher with English, Humanities (History/Geog) and HPE. I've had senior sec experience here in QLD and I am currently the s

  11. HI Everyone Can someone please confirm if AITSL still have a web address where you can check the status of your assessment for migration application? The address i have found on this forum does not exist. Many thanks. Jared
  12. Hi Everyone, Has Aitsl removed the site to check your status of the application for a qualification assessment for migration? Please can someone let me know. Assessment been in for 11 weeks and no word from them yet!!! Thank you. Jared
  13. Hi everyone I am in the process of applying for a 189 as a secondary school teacher. I would like to clarify what immigration will regard as: "closely related skilled occupation" in this field. I've worked as a secondary school teacher for 4 years and I am currently involved in teacher training at a University (for the past 4+ years). Does anyone know whether my current experience will also be taken into consideration when applying as a teacher? It will make a difference between getting 5 or 15 points. TIA, Anne
  14. Hi to all! My wife, Daughter and I are getting ready for the massive life changing move, and off course, with that, comes many doubts and even more questions. we don't currently have too many questions on the visa application itself and trust the process while using an established agent to guide us through all the steps. The biggest concern off course is the unknown. Where will we end up? will the cost of living surprise us and make us live a poor life, even after all the online research and budgeting? Have we missed any important financial elements while budgeting that

    Teaching CV, etc in WA

    Hi all We have just arrived in WA and are 6 days in... I am a teacher so I was wondering if it is necessary to have a new resume / cv written or can I just take advice from the DoE's site for this? I am living in a very small town 5 hours south of Perth so am hoping for some relief teaching so that I can get used to the new terminology and curriculum here. Any advice? Thanks in advance, Jo
  17. Hi All, I have been in contact with a few AMAZING SAAus members who have been so helpful, but I thought I would open these question up to all teachers in an attempt not to overload those awesome SAAus members with a million questions I have a BCom degree and am busy with my PGCE (Foundation Phase and Early Childhood Development) through Unisa. On the AITSL application form it states "Study assessed by AITSL as comparable to at least four years full-time (or part-time equivalent) higher education (university) level study in Australia, that results in a qualification/s comparable to the
  18. Hi guys! I have a questions for teachers who are currently in WA. I have sent through all my docs and registration forms to WATRB. How long does the assessment and registration take? And what about the Working with children check? I know I can only do it in person, but can I at all apply for teaching positions without this card? Cause this seems highly impossible, but I know of some teachers who were able to get a job from RSA and then only apply for the WWCC card once they arrive. We land in Perth on the 2nd of Jan 2014. Any advice would be helpful.
  19. This is a great initiative that I'm sure will be of use to South African teachers coming to Oz or Saffers with kids who have just started school or who will be starting school soon. It's a series of videos that offer these parents advice on modern teaching methods and what is expected of parents these days. So much has changed over the years and Australian has some different teaching methods like Montessori and the Walker method. My boy is 8 and find it quite different to when I was at school https://www.youtube.com/user/LearnEarly
  20. Hi everyone I've run into a bit of a problem trying to get my qualifications assessed by AITSL. I have a postgraduate certificate in education from UNISA. They approve of the qualification but because I had experience before I started my PGCE I was exempted from the teaching practicals and AITSL wants me to have physically done them. The lady who I spoke to said that a few teachers in the same situation as me had applied and were turned down. I'm curious to know if any of those people are here and what they did about this situation?
