Default Expression of Interest has been successful.

Was amazed in the post today came our ITA Pack, I have not checked website for a couple of days. We are busy getting the house ready to put up for sale.

We are both very excited but still very concerned we have sent by OH City and Guilds in Joinery/Carpenter Quals off to be accessed still waiting. We need a level 4.

Any body else had similar concerns?

Regards
Karen

Trade Qualifications

The City and Guilds Part One and Part Two Certificates named below, together with evidence of a completed apprenticeship registered with a recognised industry body, are assessed as occupying Level 3 of the Register and will therefore qualify for 50 points.

Note: Visa and immigration officers must ensure that the Part Two Certificate is a full qualification (usually three components). Individual components of the Part Two qualification may be separately certificated. Most full Part Two certificates require completion of three components.

Other Trade qualifications not listed below require assessment by the NZQA.

Aeronautical Engineering Craft Studies
Agricultural Mechanics
Bakery
Brickwork
Carpentry and Joinery

Found this on immigration website, not sure if this is wat you have or not.

Congratulations on the EOI successful.

Yes as in oooh will my quals be worth that much...will my work exp count...will I get through the medicals...all goes round and round in your head but we got 215 points so if they knock a few off should still be OK.

Good Luck and you should be fine...be a huge relief when it's all done and dusted though!

Well done Karen!

How many points did you have again?

Will be interested to hear what level they will assess your OHs qualification at, you know the problems we had!

Hi Nicky

Hope you are all well, we have 125 points.

I am currently looking on internet for a job for OH, he applied for one the other day and Bryan was told he was over qualified.

How are you getting on?

Karen

Default Re: Expression of Interest has been successful.

We're in a bit of a quandary as to what to do! Hubby's qualification was rated at a level 3, they knocked 25 points off our total which left us with 90 and out of the pool. :curse:

I have heard that they have increased points awarded in an EOI, but when I have completed the 'quick check', we still have the same points we started with! Level 3 qualifications are not listed on the LTSSL!

Push comes to shove, we will just go out on VV, get a job and then WTR. That's the plan, anyway!!

Regards
Nicky

Default Re: Expression of Interest has been successful.

There are loads of jobs being advertised around the Christchurch area for carpenters and brickies are apparently in short supply here to. For anyone struggling to get enough points it might be worth just coming out, getting the job and then applying for PR. Yes, this is a riskier route but the jobs are here. For anyone wanting to go further afield, I heard recently that they're looking for 300 carpenters down in Queenstown. It's a beautiful place but expensive to live there I think.

I would echo a previous post. Don't let a level 3 put you off.

Congrats on the ITA

Update,
Received back assessment from NZQA only taken 4 months.

Bryan got a Level 4 for his Joinery/Carpentry & Level 4 for his Cad.

Over the moon, because it has taken so long, we have had to get our date for returning our ITA extended.

Karen
