TAFE or cheaper school?

Naka-receive ako ng Letter of Offer from a school na $17k yung total course fee (116 weeks) tapos naka-receive din ako ng Conditional Letter of Offer from TAFE pero nasa $22k+ yung course fee naman (16 months).

Question: May preference ba ang employers kapag TAFE graduate or pantay pantay lang lahat?

    Pang PR ba aaralin mo? Usually what matters to them is may work rights ka sa Australia na no need for sponsorship nila. Pero let's wait for others.

    @catofallseasons Uni ka man or college, they will both give you 5 pts after 2 years pag diploma level or higher ang tinapos mo. Pero make sure na you will have a way to get a positive assessment in the MLTSSL/STSOL or else you cannot apply for PR. Sayang lang oras at pera.

    @MLBS What if hindi po related yong diploma course ko na natapos ko sa Australia in my nominated mltssl occupation..Can i still claim the 5 points?

    @Roden yes. Basta 2 years and diploma level pataas. Ang tricky lang dyan is how you would prove yourself bakit unrelated ang kukunin mo sa au in your GTE

    @MLBS U mean, basta pag nalusotan konyong GTE. Lets say naaprove ako at natapos yong diploma course ko is I can claim 5 points pa din.?

    During SV application, I will explain na mag tatayo ako ng Early Childhood Center sa Probinsya namin after Early childhood course completion Ko sa Australia.
    I am a Secondary Education graduate whose teaching experience is in the tertiary level. Pero Secondary School teacher ang nominated occupation ko.

    Related po sya sa Education; however, different age range nga lang.

    I have Masters also kaya baka redflag sakin ang Diploma course. Mag explain na naman ako.

    Pero e tra try kopa din.. I hope magiging okay.

    Oo basta 2 years ang study at diploma level. Sa masters lang ang tricky siguro kasi step down ang diploma from that. All the best.
