My partner and I are looking to immigrate to Australia on a skilled workers visa. They no longer have Primary school teachers as a profession in shortage, however they do have Early Childhood (Pre-primary) teachers on the profession shortage list. I have a 3 year BSc(Hons) in Physiotherapy and completed a year's PGCE in general Primary. During my training I did 25 days in Year 1 (5-6 year old) and 150+ days in Year 4 (8-9 year olds). The Australian teacher skills website specifies that I need 45 days supervised teaching experience with children aged 0 to 8, so technically would I qualify? Has anyone been through a similar process or know anything about the state of teaching for overseas teachers in Aus? Please help!
