    hi miss mia..just for some clarifications

    me and my husband are both social workers. I work in a govt setting assigned to handle in
    adoption while my husband manages a residential facility for children, he is the project manager in that facility. Looking into the vetasses ielts is not really a requirement for assessment. can my husband take the vetasses for assessment instead of AASW?

      Hello again... check if your husband's job description now will substantially match what's listed for the nominated occupation.

      ACWA is the assessing authority for 134214 Welfare Centre Manager and not VETASSESS so you may have to check their requirements...

      134299 Health and Welfare Services Managers nec is VETASSESS but it's not on the MLTSSL. It's on the STSOL so with this occupation you need to be state sponsored... checked the states that has this occupation on the list and both require Proficient English (no band below 7)

      Don't know which of these two would match your husband so read carefully

      Doesn't matter at which part of the process you need the English exam, you will need it in one way or another...

    Hi Ms. Mia, I've read your comment regarding NZ pathway ng mga SG RN's. i need your help po.
    Paano po ba ang mangyayari lets say after approval ng NZ for registration na I don't have to take CAP then pano po makatransition from NZ to Au (without physically going to NZ for work). Will I be given annual practicing cert from NZ?
    I've read po about Trans Tasman and I saw the form ATMR40 and nakaindicate po dun ung mga documents na need iattach sa application form like yun nga pong "annual practicing cert"
    I don't have any idea na po on what to do next and what to expect.

    thank you

      Yun na nga po after NZ registration. Submit the trans tasman form to AHPRA then wait. Yung annual practicising cert, registration cert will be mailed to you.

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.
