    Hi Sarah



    I am not sure where I plan to base myself when I get out to Melbourne.
    At present my brother lives there Elwood I think but could be wrong. I
    visited once and loved it. My brother is moving out to Tasmania however
    so expect I'll have to strike out on my own fairly early on.



    I am waiting to hear back in response to my email enquiries to
    Victoria's education department about my qualification. I think I may
    be o.k in terms of doing supply as they have lots of subsections about
    teachers with less than the 4 year degree doing so. But I can't believe
    that I am not deemed as qualified.



    Your NQT year shouldn't make any difference like you say to those up
    high in Oz as I don't think they have the same NQT year. I am just
    waiting to finish mine in October (as I'm non-standard). That's why I
    waited until December to go out there as I wanted to make sure that my
    qualification here wouldn't expire if I stayed.



    I think you have 5 years in which to complete your NQT year here. After
    that your qualification is not valid. Mind you I could be wrong.



    Oh to meet an Aussie guy. Lucky you. Congrats on your marriage. My
    brother married an Aussie girl two years ago and has never looked back.



    I plan to go up the East Coast when I first arrive in Oz to do the usual
    siteseeing trail. Then come back down to Oz and do supply (should I be
    accepted). Any other hints or tips would be great.



    Thanks

    Sarah

    Hi Sarah,

    have you heard anything back from Victoria about getting registered to
    teach? I assume that you were a GTP or RTP trainee, and were simply
    granted Qualified Teacher Status at the end of your course.

    I am just completeing my GTP programme, with a view to moving to
    Australia to take up teaching, and naturally this thread has worried
    me a little. I thought that the main problem would be with doing the
    NQT year. Thankfully I have just been granted a PR Visa based upon my
    previous work experience, but owing to personal circumstances decided
    to retrain while my visa was being processed.

    If you are still interested in going to Oz to teach, then have a look
    at this website:

    www.protocolteachers.com

    its a London based teacher agency with offices in the Australian State
    capitals, attempting to recruit UK teachers across to Australia. They
    seem to have a very positive outloook for UK teachers, and they simply
    require you to be a qualified teacher, have a suitable visa and be
    clear of convictions for registration.

    I hope that's helpful. If you get any more information about state
    registration, then please let me know, as I will be trying to get
    registered myself after Christmas.

    Best regards,

    Nathan
