hi I am new to the site. I am a yoga teacher, hubby is a builder. We are planning on moving out to Tauranga area in about 12 - 18 months with 14 year old daughter and 17 yr old son. Our 20 year old daughter will come later when she has finished her apprenticeship with Audi. Any ideas on areas to live or colleges for 14 year old - will be 16 when we come.

hiya
your daughter is the same age as mine...
if youre gonna live in tauranga theres only the girls college. Travel to otumoetai and theres otumoetai college or over at the mount theres the mount college!!!! pay fees to go to bethlehem college and aquinas college (religious). other than that, it depends what she wants to do as there is the polytech in Tauranga too.. mine go to girls college, and although I was a bit bothered about the 'all girls' thing, she absolutely loves it and is doing very well there! let me know if you need any more info but there will also be websites for all the schools!

DO IT YOURSELVES!!!!! The agents just want money and its really not that hard to do, just time consuming!! my oh is a joiner too and got work no problem....you can pick n choose jobs in that trade!! pays not too hot though!!

just make sure you have all his trade certificates and proof of apprenticeships etc..

Hi we are not using an agency as everyone seems to say that they rip you off, so doing ourselves. We have just sent off for replacement birth certificates and an application to get hubby's building qualifications recognised. We are hoping to wait til nearer the time and hopefully find him a job offer, that would be the easiest way to go.

the more i read on here the more im against using an agency,lol. we are going to a seminar meeting thing next week over in leeds which tells us how its all done, what to do ect ect, my hubby who wants to do things right is saying to go with an agency incase we mess up any forms but they are asking a silly amount of money to find you a job and school places ect which im sure i can do by flicking around the internet and using the phone. hope you dont mind me asking but how much do you think you save without an agency (it gives me more ammunition to change my hubby's mind, lol)

Hi

Someone I know was quoted £1000 which seems crazy. We are crap at paperwork, so if we can do it I'm sure you can too. I think you just find out bits as you go along and do it step by step.

cheers lindsay, i can see where my hubby is coming from, but paying up to £4000 when u can do it for £1000 is crazy plus every penny saved is good for us all. im sure with a gently push i can persude him to do this without an agent. i know im rubbish at form filling lol but the people on here are great and really helpful, i must say this forum and its community is the best
i hope things go well for you, im sure we will come across each other again,lol
good luck and if i can help (even tho i aint at the point you are) give us a shout id be happy to help.
