    Hi to all you brits down under,
    This is my first post, and i need your help, so here is our story..............
    My husband has 8 years experience in the painting/decorating/maintenance sector. He has not been in this trade for the last 5 years, but has just returned to it this month. He has no formal qualifications, just on the job experience/client testimonials/tax records to back up his years in the trade. I am studying for a level 3 diploma in early years teaching, and will be qualified in feb 2015 with 2 years experience. We are looking to emigrate to the cairns area, Queensland, as my sister has been there 8 years now, and we would like to move near her if possible. We have twin daughters age 7.
    I know we can get my husbands skills assesed, but how long does he need to be working in the trade before we can apply for a visa? and does he have enough years experience?
    I am being told lots of different information, and not sure which is correct.
    I know i cannot use my qualification (once qualified), as this is not on skills list, which is a shame as there is a shortage or early years workers in the QLD area.
    Any help in this matter would be very much appreciated!
