I am after some advice for my Norwegian mum, who is thinking about relocating to Australia in a year or two. The visa she is applicable for will give her permanent residency and permission to work full-time.
Although she is of a non-speaking background, I would say that her level of English is pretty good, probably intermediate or better.
She is likely to be 60 years old (I cannot believe it; she is so young at heart and attractive - Love you mum!) when she relocates.
Mum used to be an enrolled nurse in Norway up until 15 years ago, but has in the last 15 years worked in After School Care and as a child care assistant (without formal qualifications). She is extremely good at what she is doing.
My question to those of you who are knowledgeable about working within the childcare sector;
- Is she unlikely to get a full-time job; her slight language barriers, age and lack of formal education considered?
She loves the job she has in Norway, and would love to do something similar here.
Thanks for any feedback!
