You cannot claim for experience or qualifications in an identified future growth area unless you have already got a job in NZ or an offer of a job in NZ related to an identified future growth area.

You can claim points for work experience/qualifications in an area of absolute skills shortage by claiming an occupation of the LTSSL but you must meet the requirements for that occupation exactly.

I would also have a look at the History of Selection Points as a score of 125 without a job offer is not going to be selected from the pool. You would be wasting your money. If you have a look at the link above you can see what has been selected recently

Re: Confused About my Points
 
thanks Persephone for suggesting, yes i am also aware of that, so i am thinking to claim spouse points, that would take me to 145 i guess, but for that she would need ielts 6.5 right? and she would get 20 points as mentioned below?

Does your partner have a recognised qualification ? (level 3, 4, 5 or 6) 10 points
Did your partner begin study for their level 3, 4, 5 or 6 recognised qualification on or before 24 July 2011? 10 points

that can take me to 145 points. Right?


Thanks

Re: Confused About my Points
 
If you wish to claim points for your partner's qualifications then yes, she must have the same level of English as the principal candidate.

The qualification must be on the List of Recognised Quals or it will need assessing by NZQA, same as yours.

If she has a level 3-6 qualification then she can then claim 10 points. However unless this was gained in NZ then you cannot claim for the second 10 points. That appears to be for NZ qualifications only
