Hi! I would like to know if there are Filipino teachers in Aussie? Or are there teachers here who are also applying for a visa to Australia? Kindly share your experiences and the processes that you've undergone regarding visa application.

Thanks in advance.

    Wala yatang Filipino na ngtuturo sa Aussie???? According to my friend, dati meron daw mga teachers but then nag-qquit mahirap daw kasi ang accent. Lumilipat ng ibang job mga teachers doon, how true is it? Sabi ng Aussie friend ko when I told him I'll be applying as a teacher in Australia, he said the problem is the language barrier and he suggested me to apply as a waitress in Filipino restaurant instead. Ganun ba talaga nangyayari sa iba na hindi nakakakuha ng job according sa profession nila, they would work as cashier, waitress and other blue collar jobs?

    mayrun nagtuturo na pinay sa aussie check mo sa philippine.com.au

    yeah its true the problem is language barrier sa spelling pala may pagkakaiba ang american english sa australian english. kahit mga Australian american european may mga words sila na di magkaintindihan because of the spelling. May australian accent na talagang ang hirap intindihin sa sobrang bilis mag salita. kaya kailangan mabilis ang pandinig mo.

    halimbawa din tayo mas sariling accent na english minsan di nila maintindihan ang english natin,

    masasanay ka nman eh pag matagal ka na dito. good luck

    My concern is I still don't know which skilled work should I nominate cuz when I enquired to AISTL, yung assessing body for teachers, they said I will be assessed according to my initial educational qualification, which is in my case is BSE (teacher for high school) but I spent the majority of my work experiences in Primary Level. Now, I'm eyeing on nominating TESOL (Teacher of English as a Second Language) cuz yun talaga pina-practice kong skill dito sa abroad however I don't know if they will consider my college course (BSE Major in General Science) but I took a short term course for TESOL in La Salle. So, I will try...hopefully it will work.

    ilan buwan kana na nag reresearch wala ka pa rin clear kung saan skilled ka. yung tinanungan mo na assessing body pag iexplain syo dapat yun na wala ng denial na parang ang gusto mo marining eh ay puede kung di nman talaga puede. Nag email ka ba sa assesssing body at tumawag yun kasi ang paraan para clarify at masagot ang tanung mo. Pag nag email ka sasagot naman yun. importante nasagot yung tanung mo galing assesisng body. Mahirap yung nag aantay ka ng sagot kung nandyan naman yung talagang assessing body na sasagot sa tanung mo.

    yun naman sa TESOL nman may assessing body naman yan hanapin mo site nila then mag email at tawagan mo sila kung puede ka mag pa assessment. mahirap yung nagaantay ka ng sagot na di sgurado. mabuti na yun tanungin mo yung assessing body kasi sila ang nakakaalam ng eligibility.

    ngayun kung nalilito ka pa rin ang final option mo ay mag hanap MARA. sila ang mas nakakaalam ng ibang option para makapag apply ka ng skilled visa o kahit anung klaseng visa.

    goodluck.

    Thanks sa information Mr. Totoy, etong research na ginagawa ko e di ko naman magawa ng fulltme cuz I'm still working and living alone so I just do during my spare time. Dun sa una kong enquiry sa AISTL as Primary Teacher ayon sa kanila they cannot recommend which occupation to nominate pero yun nga my skill will be assessed according to my initial qualification, so feeling ko No ang answer. I can't nominate Primary Teacher nor Secondary Teacher cuz ang experience ko sa level na yan ay 10 years ago pa at one year lang. So etong TESOL, I will check on VETASSESS. AS of now I'm concentrating on my IELTS.

    Good luck too!

    hi @gemini23. secondary school teacher ako sa SOL. para ngang wala akong napapansing kagaya ko rito o sa ibang sites. inaantay ko nalang ang resulta ng application ko na 23may2011 ko pa ni-lodge. late ko na nadiscover itong forum at wala akong migration agent. nakakastress pala pag walang suporta at nagrely lang talaga sa DIAC website. Thank God at patapos na.

    January2011 pako nabigyan ng certification ng AITSL. "Suitable" naman daw ako based sa sinubmit kong requirements. bago nag-apply, kumuha muna ako ng IELTS (kailangan at least 7 lahat) at sinigurong may at least 3 years work experience ako sa isang high school (social studies ang major ko).

    medyo particular din sila sa supervised teaching. natagalan sa paghingi ng certification sa school ko na nag-undergo ako ng 45 days of supervised teaching. nasa mindanao kasi ako at nakiusap lang ako sa isang friend from college. Although kasama naman talaga ang student teaching sa curriculum, hiningan pa rin ako.

    pero bakit nga konti lang ang nag-aapply na teachers?! nasasayangan lang ako kasi nasa SOL pa sya.
    13 Feb 2010 - took the IELTS (L-9;R-8.5;S-7.5;W-7)
    April 2010 - applied for AITSL certification; AITSL requested for course syllabi of major subjects and a certification from Uni that I underwent at least 30 days of supervised teaching; was given until 26 Nov to submit docs. // 10 Jan 2011 - AITSL issued the certification (Positive! yey! despite being unable to send requested additional docs)
    23 May 2011 - lodged 176 fam-sponsored app online
    29 Dec 2011 - CO allocated; CO requested for more evidence of Specific Work Experience
    7 Mar 2012 - received email for Medicals and PCC // 14 Mar - check-up at St. Luke's // 19 Mar - medicals finalised
    4 Apr 2012 - applied for NBI clearance (hit!) // 25 May - got the NBI clearance.
    30 May 2012 at 2:01 PM Ph time- online status writes, "Applicant Approved; email sent to you." Whew!

    Hello, nice to hear from you. Wow! What a coincidence, birthday ko pa nung nag-lodge ka ng application mo. Hopefully positive and application mo. I read some feed backs in the other forum about teaching in Australia, mahirap daw kasi makakuha ng work sa teaching field, most employers are looking for local experience saka may ibang states daw na pagt-takin ka ulit ng English test at kelangan maka-8 ka sa Speaking and Listening. Sa akin, kahit assistant teacher ok na, basta me stable job. Problem ko is BSE ang course ko but ang teaching experience ko is sa elementary. One year lang ako ng-teach sa high school and it was 11 years ago. Kaya pinag-aaralan ko ng mabuti ang pag-aaply baka masayang lang ang pera ko sa pagpapa-assess then hindi pala ko qualified. Pero paano ko nga ba malalaman if qualified ako if hindi ko it-try? Asikasuhin ko muna IELTS ko, hopefully maka-7 na ko sa lahat ng subtests.

    @gemini23 - ngayong araw lang ako nabigyan ng visa. (salamat kay Lord!) medyo mahirap nga yung sitwasyon mo sa work experience. pero wag ka mawalan ng pag-asa. hopefully maka-8 ka sa lahat ng subtests para mas malaki chances. :)
