Default Help with EOI Points question

Hi there,

Don't know if anyone can help, but I studied for and passed a YTS, then a BTEC ONC in Science (Chemistry) back in 1991. I left the industry after about 3 years in total as it bored me quite a lot (monotonous tests of the same things day after day). Anyway, I went into the music industry after this and have been there ever since, (now self employed guitar repairer / luthier) although I didn't study for or attain any relevant qualifications (apart from one on one study with a master luthier ... no qualification available from him) as there were none available back then.

My question is...Is my BTEC worth the 10 points as a basic qualification even though I'm not in the industry, anddon't wish to re-enter it, when applying with my partner (Level 3 qualified / Saon Owner / State Reg Senior Hairdresser etc + over 12yrs experience) as the primary applicant for New Zealand?

regards, Rich

Morning, i know that they did not recognise Adie's diploma so he had to send off all his results papers to NZ to be assessed against thier education system. They then gave him points in relation to where his diploma fell into thier system. I think you can find a link on the NZIS to their qualification board.
Hope this is of some help.

Thanks, I'll take a look at it....I only need it to be classed as a basic qualification as I'm the secondary aplicant anyway, but it's wrth 10 points.

Cheers, Rich

HI Rich,

Just a bit more info for you, I have a HND which comes in at level 6, which you can then cross reference with NZIS on their website. The kwis Quals the level table can be found at:
http://www.kiwiquals.govt.nz/about/levels/index.html
I think you might come it at around level 4 with a ONC

And bear in mind that qual's evaluation costs just under £500 pounds (including couriers and is not all that quick, about six weeks.(we paid extra to have it done quickly, and it still took longer than they said). So if your OH has enough points with out the need for secondary applicant's points then just apply under her and ignore your qual's, which is what we done with me as main applicant.

Adie

Might have to aim for the job offer then as we're at 105 points if I drop my 10...doubt we'd get selected so close to the 100 break off point. Mind you, I'm trying to gain a Level 2 qualification (worth 10 points) in addition to my BTEC ONC, which is more current and therefore should be accepted straight off. We're settin a rough timeframe of 18 months, so I have time to get the qualification if they get enough interest to run the course....aargh !!

OH will be Level 3 qualified hairdresser / state registered / master craftsmen reg'd / extension specialist etc etc, but this is still only classed as a basic qualification on the EOI form !

Thanks for the link tho..

Hi ya,

When I done the EOI, i claimed points for qual's in future growth areas, even tho I wasn't strickly elegable for them, which gave us 140 points so we got selected. After the selection they deducted some points which left us with just enough points, provided we got the ITA in before my 30th b-day, cos at that points we wouldn't then have enough points. So what I am trying to say is provided you have just enough points to get thro the ITA, you may get away with bumbing them up to get your EOI selected from the pool

Hope this sneeky bad practice idea helps

I like your style my friend !!!

I may well try this method, as we will have the extra qualifications by the time we head to NZ anyway.
