Teachers migrating to Australia are required to complete a teacher skills assessment through the Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership (AITSL). The AITSL will need to assess your qualifications against Australian Standards before you can apply for a Skilled Visa.
To be considered suitably qualified as a Teacher in Australia you must have 4 years (full time equivalent) of tertiary education. Therefore, you will have either:
You must demonstrate you have completed at least 45 days of supervised teaching practice as part of your compulsory initial teacher education program. This must be within the age range of students relevant to your nominated occupation. Work Experience does not count towards supervised teaching practice.
Employment based routes into the teaching profession such as the Graduate Teacher Program (GTP) or the School Centered Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) are not recognised as suitable by the AITSL unless the program results in a formal award with an academic transcript and a statement of supervised teaching practice, all issued by the institution awarding the teaching qualification.
