Hi, I have same problem..did you claim 5 points for your wife?Hi
My wife is nursing and she has total 60 points ( principle applicant for pr)and I am overseas physio. I have interim certificate provided by Australian physiotherapy council(got it after eligibility assessments) and I have ielts 7 on each band can i get extra 5 point.
In the interim certificate it has been written as
This Interim Certificate is issued to acknowledge that the candidatehas been assessed as an overseas-qualified physiotherapist.
The candidate is eligible to undertake the Australian Physiotherapy Council assessment process for overseas physiotherapists.
If this certificate is used to obtain registration as a physiotherapist in Australia, it is the responsibility of the candidate to advise the Physiotherapy Board of Australia if the Interim Certificate expires or is cancelled.
What is the occupationHi,
I am planning to apply for Australian PR under the classification
Skilled Independent visa (subclass 189)
My wife is also having the same educational and professional background but she has just 2 years of experience from 2014-2016.
Can I claim my partner skills points keeping her 2 years of experience on record?
Thanks in advance.
Haven't seen such criteria before. This is what VETASSESS saysdoubtful whether TESOL demands her work experience to be onshore
VETASSESS said:To be assessed positively for this occupation, applicants must hold at least a Bachelor degree in the relevant discipline, i.e. TESOL or English as a Second Language Teaching. This is the study of theories, methods and practice of teaching English to those whose first language is other than English, including teaching children in school settings and teaching adults and children in other settings (ASCED). Highly relevant fields of study would include a major focus in pedagogical knowledge (the knowledge of teaching and learning) supported by content knowledge (how language works). Qualifications must be in Education or Pedagogy with a focus on training to be a teacher to speakers of other languages and include subjects such as TESOL / English Language Teaching / Modern Language Teaching / Teaching a Second Language.
This is the rule set by DHA so cannot be challengedHi, Can someone enlighten me the rationale why claiming for partner skills point has a criterion that both occupations should be under the same list? My occupation is under MLTSSL while my wife's under STSOL. By right, if a state is looking for both occupations and have valid skill assessment, this should be already enough. However, this is not the case. Because of that criterion, i won't be able to claim for additional points.
That's correct!!Hi Team,
I have below queries for the point "had a skilled occupation from the relevant Skilled Occupation List, that is their partner's nominated occupation must be on the same Skilled Occupation List as the partner's nominated occupation" while claiming partner points.
My Wife has ACS assessment for ,
Software Engineer - 261313
I have ACS assessment
Software Tester - 261314
We both have 5 points for English.
But, while applying for EOI, 5 points for partner skills were not given for 189, however it was given for 190. I have attached the screenshots as well.
If it is positive and you will be secondary applicant, then you are good to goHi,
I have recently received my ACS assessment report, they have not considered my current employer's experience saying insufficient details provided I am chasing them on it. I will be the dependent applicant for 189 visa and as per my current ACS evaluation it's considering my experience (current experience excluded) as 3.9 Years and it's in the same ANZSCO category i.e Software Engineer 261313.
As far as I am aware, dependent's work experience adds no value and I can claim 5 points with my current ACS (IELTS already done) ?
Also if my current experience is not considered, it will not have any impact on my overall application ?
I'm confused about this. Understand that software engineer and software tester are from different skilled occupation list. But, why the additional partner skill points still being added to 190? According to the link below, partner skill should be in the same list as the main applicant.That's correct!!
Because Software engineer falls in the category of MTSOL and Tester in STSOL, means both occupations do not fall under same SOL.
Hence, you will get 5 points only for 190 and not for 189
EOi is an independent system which does not check any verification or validity. so it is better to check yourself as those regulations are only for visa officers to be verifiedI'm confused about this.
