They are a great help

Do you know if I provide my qualifications, job description on my own word, ref's from employers then is that enough or do I have to show payslips etc going back too 2004?

Hi

I did this without an agent. Was a pain in the A$$ but saved myself quite a bit of money.

I wrote out my own job spec, and then gave it to my HR department and my manager to sign. Who else knows your job better than you. I think its key to show that you have lots of relevant experience. More important IMO than just a degree with limited practical experience.

Then you needed to get all the docs certified by a solicitor - a local solicitor did it for £5 per doc. copies of the diploma or degree that you have - and crucially here - i provided a breakdown of the subjects covered in my diploma - this is a requirement. Also certificates of any relevant trianing courses you may have ben sent on in your career. This may be may not have been necessary, but providing too much is better than providing too little.

Then you pay and wait - mine came through in about 4 weeks. Its a complete pain, but totally doable in a couple of weeks, or days if you are focused enough.

Hey

Thanks I have written up full job history, refs for my employers to sign and have a copy of all my certificates ect

When you said you have a breakdown of courses, mines is an apprenticeship which you gain a Btec and the certificate is 3 parts 1st part saying congrats blah bla completed and the other 2 parts are the subjects studied with Pass, Merit etc......would this be ok as a breakdown?

Should be as that's what I provided for mine. I also included the Completion of Apprenticeship if you have that as well?

That was my next question as TRA check list states

It states under Employment Evidence that you need references for each employer on headed paper, which I will obtain. the next section is paid employment you need to provide pay slips from each employer.

Is the pay slips also to be supplied on top of the references and if so how many pay slips do you require?

So you are saying you need to provide both, that's going to be a lot of payslips for me also......did you send the originals? Could you not just send your first and last one for each employment with your references if on headed company paper?

When I applied I needed to prove 4 years, so I sent 4 years worth of certified copies of pay statements on top of the reference letters etc. Could have sent more

Ha that's a lot of photo copying of payslips.

I have emailed TRA as that seems excessive as if you provide a statement and say a P60 plus maybe 3 pay slips from start, middle and end of you employment then they should really get the idea......BUT then again!!
