Default Hairdressing in aus

Hi my husband and i are thinking of emigrating to Australia (Perth) and i was wondering if anyone knows if NVQ level 2 in Hairdressing is recognised and would be valid for a General skills visa.

All this is so confusing it would be nice to hear from people who have managed to sort it out and also from people who are in the same boat as me.

We have tried some web sites but none of them seem to give you a straight answer.

Thanks for taking the time to read this

Hi Beverley,

Yes NVQ2 is fine, however, you do have to prove you have worked in the industry for a certain length of time...if you type in Hairdressing in the search box you can subscribe to that thread and you will be emailed each time theres a post. Lots of good advice on there and all just for us Hairdressers, so im sure you will get all the info you need. I have my NVQ2, and been told there screaming out for us, which is nice, however not worked in a salon for sometime, my husband is a Mechanic so have applied under his proffesion. Just waiting for meds to be requested!!!

Good luck.

Thanks for your replies as i have only just passed my NVQ2 i think i will have a long wait. Does anyone know how long you have to actually work at that level before they accept you?

We have tried going in on my husbands qualifications to but as he is in IT the demand is not so high, so we don't get enough points. I was wondering if you would know if it is possible to go out with my family on a temp working visa, and work full time for the amoutn of time required to be accepted permanently as a Hairdresser, but then a suppose that would be to easy.

Thanks again for all your replies

I believe it's 6 years experience that the TRA are looking for.

I think but pleased dont quote me..that the time scale involved as they are so desparate is 4 years now...and this can include full time training...you will need to dig further I have been keeping an eye for a friend on the proceedures,but I am almost certain they changed the rules for hairdressers earlier this year........

best of luck

first port of call is really the TRA...send them a mail...I have a few times they reply pretty quick...

TRA are looking for 3 years if you have worked for someone and 6-7 years if it is your own busines to get a positive assessment. I know this all too well as I have been working towards getting Australia since Noah put the first nail in his arc. lol.

Go the TRA website all will be reveled. If not the sign like the rest of us cos they keep on changing the rules.
cheers

Most people are using hairdressing to get into australia. Is perth that different to brissie in wages? I suppose it depends on whether you want to work in A SALON, or work for yourself or open a salon. Posting your original comment may stop people maybe wanting to come, and although it may be realistic in your situation, others have the talent, business acumen and different ways to make money no matter which side of the country they are. Dont bother posting if you are bitter, as we can all make our own minds up when we get there and rash generalisations such as yours may put some people off wanting to be there.

Wages are different depending on many factors but the median salary is poor for hairdressing.
I am sure my post wont stop people wishing to emigrate if so perhaps they should not go if they go by the opinion of someone who has made the move
and my friend its NOT my situation that IS the going rate for a hairdresser working for someone else.As for your comments as to others have the talent,business acumen,and different ways of making money.WHO THE FXXX ARE YOU TO JUDGE ME! I am far from bitter i live in a $800.000 home in hillarys no mortgage i own four properties back in the U.k. and a home in Northern France. I am very happy with my lot thank you i dont need an arogant little upstart like you telling me what i should and should not post if people dont like what they read fine thats thier perogative .
