    Thank you Ms @caienri sa response. question lang po, if kukuha po ba ng Adv Cert in Early Years o kaya Diploma in ECE sa Singapore ang wife ko makakatulong ba sya sa assessment? I mean, recognize ba kaya nila based sa stardards or qualifications sa Australia?

    @jayCee I’m not absolutely sure pero sa case ko I studied diploma din here in sg but ang recognized lang as evidence is my degree sa Philippines. I took up education so 4 years higher ed and minimum 1 year initial teacher education eh cover na ng degree ko.

    Pwede po magtanong? I know AITSL requires IELTS Academic module (SL-8; RW-7) for assessment, but for language points po for immigration, could we use IELTS General Module instead, with perhaps higher scores? Thanks po.

    @jayCee
    2 certificates kasi manggagaling sa AITSL
    First is skills assessment.
    Eto po yung requirements from AITSL that your wife MUST fulfill for assessment:

    Four years university education
    45 days practicum
    IELTS

    2nd is skilled EMPLOYMENT certificate or statement
    Eto naman po criteria from AITSL website:

    You are only eligible for a skilled employment statement if you gain a positive skills assessment for a school teacher occupation.

    We assess skilled employment that was:

    completed in any country
    closely related to your nominated school teacher occupation
    undertaken within the past 10 years
    undertaken after the completion of an initial teacher education qualification
    for at least four consecutive weeks and at least 20 hours per week
    undertaken within a registered school setting
    paid employment.

    Ang hindi ko lng sure sa case nyo is if may 45 days practicum po ba xa with her secondary teaching qualifications?

    Or if iconsider ng AITSL na her practicum from SG ECE (assuming meron) and then her degree sa Pinas.

    The best scenario is she’ll receive a positive assessment from her qualifications from Pinas as a secondary school teacher. Then receive a skilled employment certificate as ECE based on her WORK experience in SG.

    Pero po, hindi po ako expert. Si AITSL lang talaga makakapag clarify sa inyo. Unless other people here have the same case.

    Sana po nakatulong ako.

    Salamat po ng marami.

    Sa question nyo po na: "Ang hindi ko lng sure sa case nyo is if may 45 days practicum po ba xa with her secondary teaching qualifications?" - Meron po, in fact halos 1 semester nga po yon with a university prof.

    "The best scenario is she’ll receive a positive assessment from her qualifications from Pinas as a secondary school teacher. Then receive a skilled employment certificate as ECE based on her WORK experience in SG. "
    - Pasencya na po ha, magaganda po kasi mga insights na galing sa inyo. Tanong lng po, so pwedi po ba mag-paAssess sya sa educational qualifications nya sa Pinas as a secondary school teacher? Pwedi po ba yon magamit niya KAHIT na ang skilled employment nya sa SG is ECE?

    Kung hindi po ako nagkakamali base po sa nabanggit nyo, separate pala ang assessments ng AITSL sa Educ & Employment Skills?

    Please po wag lang kayong magsasawa sa pagsagot sa mga tanong namin. Napakalaking tulong po nga lahat ng ito sa aming mga baguhan at nangangarap. Salamat nga marami po.

    Mam, tanong lang po... sa case po ninyu? Early Childhood po ba ang ang educ background nyo sa Pinas? Paano nyo sinimulan ang pagprocess nyo po Mam?

    Any advise... in case magpa-assess po wife ko using her educ background niya sa Pinas as secondary school teacher licensed holder with morethan 45 days praticum, pupwedi po ba yon though ang employment skill is 5yrs ECE in SG?

    Thanks po mam.

    Kasi po sa case ko, bachelor of elementary educ ako sa pinas. Hnd xa considered na ECE here in sg as well as in Australia. But i studied diploma sa sg to be able to work in sg. I think your wife knows the L2 qualifications sa sg.

    Ang considered po ng AITSL sa educational assessment part is yung pinas degree qualifications ko, my practicum din na 1 sem sa pinas, plus ielts. The evidence they stated in my certificate eh yung degree ko lang sa pinas and ielts although i also submitted my sg diploma qualifications (hindi ito stated sa certificate na emailed sakin).

    I think similar kami ng case in terms of hindi kami both ECE sa Pinas. So I guess, okay magiging assessment nya considering makita ng AITSL na equivalent yung secondary education course nya sa Pinas with Australia (etong part na to ang hindi ko masasagot).

    Sa skilled employment assessment naman, they considered my work experience from 2008 (3 years Prep level sa Pinas, 5 years sa SG in child care setting) so pasok xa sa Nominated occupation na ECE.

    When you submit the application, pede sbay yang education and work assessment para isang process and bayad lang. hindi nmn i process ang skilled employment if hindi positive si education assessment. Pag separate mo pa sila, dagdag bayad and time Ng processing. So i suggest pagsabayin nyo na lang. and isang application lang din nmn sila.

    First step is IELTS really. Naka 2 takes ako bago ma achieve ang 7/8 na score. Then, Gather all documents. Mejo matagal kasi kumuha ng mga documents from Pinas since nasa SG nga ako.

    Take note, hindi po need ang PRC license. Hindi nila hiningi and I got my positive assessment.

    Mam, thank very much napaka-informative ng binigay nyo pong insight.

    I think we need to talk about it and plan it carefully before magpa-assess.

    1) Last na po tanong Mam, so paano po ba yon, bali mahahati ba yung pagpapa-assess namin sa AITSL kung sakali, in terms sa educational background and employemnt ng wife ko?

    2) Kung magpapa-assess po ba kami kailangan ba namin piliin ang ECE or Secondary teacher sa AITSL?


    Salamat po ulit.

    @jayCee hi po.
    Hindi ko na po sure yung sagot sa tanong nyo since magkaiba kami ng case ng wife mo.
    I suggest ask kau sa agent. Free nmn initial assessment nila. Just to be sure po.

    @jayCee this is my initial assessment from my agent, ms angelica (aka ms gigi):

    An initial teacher education qualification relevant to the early childhood (pre-primary school) teacher occupation of at least one year full-time study (or part time equivalent) at the higher education (university) level. The qualification must include a minimum of 45 days of supervised teaching practice with students across the ages Birth to 8 years in education programs prior to and in the early years of primary school.


    Please advise if your Bachelor of Elementary Education meets the above criterion (highlighted in yellow) as this qualification is considered your ‘initial teacher education qualification’. I think it is fine if there is little or no early childhood content (because you have a postgraduate qualification in Early Childhood Care and Education) but you would also need to meet the second part of the criterion which is the minimum 45 days supervised teaching practice.

    You may contact her at

    Hi @mikelbee ! I hope my reply will still make sense to u. I've worked in California in a school district so i kinda have an idea of the tax thing there.

    If i were you, i will first figure out if i will be eligible for a visa 189 (permanent resident). If you are eligible, than i would go for it if i were you.

    How long have you been working in the US? I left back in 2010. I have friends who have been there since 2006 and are still working on getting a green card. More than 10 freakin years already, heaps of state and federal taxes paid and yet pinagdadamot pa dn ang citizenship!?!? What the!

    Anyways, i got here under visa 189 and right off the bat, my family and i have been eligible for medicare.

    We are getting family tax benefit too (fortnightly allowance to help with the kids's expenses and me kasama n dn housing assistance).

    I have never experienced that in the US. Patay katawan pa. Full time work.

    But here, most of my colleagues in the school where i work in are part timers. Why? Because they value family time and mental health more. They know what to prioritise. And career is not on top of their list.

    Super chill sila dto. U'll be surprised as to the number of people who walk barefoot not because they can't afford to buy shoes but it's because they just dont sweat the small stuff.

    Anyways, had i known sooner about australia's awesome opportunities, i should have migrated here sooner.

    So yes, i would advise u to come here. U pay taxes yes, but they are generous in granting permanent residency to qualified professionals. Ur taxes reach u. Awesome playgrounds. Public toilets. Beautiful wildlife etc etc.

    And in a few year's time, citizenship is within reach.

New SimplyStall Mobile App!

Hi everyone!

I'm very happy to announce PinoyAu Forum's new app called "SimplyStall" . It's a new Gumtree like service for Pinoys in Australia but in a way better!

So if you have any items just collecting dust? Why not convert it to cash?

If you are selling new items or products or wish to give an item away for free then this might be a good avenue for you.

This project is a new initiative to unify and have a common portal for Pinoys in Australia to sell and share stuffs.

It's now available on Google Play and Apple App Store.

Please do try it out. I'd appreciate if you can help me spread the good news and start selling your old or new stuffs.
