Hi, I'm fairly new to this forum thing but if anyone could give advice that would be great. I've just returned to England after 18months of travel most in Australia where I managed to gain a second WHV which has been accepted. I am aiming to return to the land of oz early Jan/Feb 09 but on a perm basis (just something i've always planned on doing). Anyway I have a degree in Business and 5 years managerial experience, I am also a qualified TEFL teacher amongst other things but any which I have tried I am not on the wanted skills list (very frustrating when a single, healthy, young female who pays taxs ans works hard wants so badly to live in a country finds it so difficult to get in!!)
My only options are to marry an ozzy as every tells me or sponsorship but does anyone know of any jobs that would suit such experience. Or if its possible to get sponsored through language schools??
So many questions..and very confusing if any one has advice on any of this thank you please respond...

Im planning on moving to Aus permanently after my rtw trip. I have a PGCE in English, Media and Drama in key stages 4 and 5. As far as I know English, Science and Maths are subjects they need teachers for in Aus.
My bf has the same qualifications as you and has been refused because they do not need and business or tefl teachers.
You would easily get on a Maths PGCE course with your business degree, but the only problem is that you will spend a year doing the PGCE and then have to spend another year doing your NQT year in England to become fully qualified. Math PGCE students currently get paid £1,000 per month and also get a 'golden hello' on completion of the NQT year which is a pretty good deal in my opinion!

Have a look at this site for other ideas
