The Training Plan is the single most important document in Training Visa application process.
Lodged with Nomination applicaiton, the Training Plan MUST BE CUSTOMISED to the trainee and in response to clearly defined and articulated training competencies.
The Training Plan must also be customised to the training context of the sponsor and the type and methods of training chosen in the nomination application.
Failure to consistently link all of these elements will result in nomination application refusal.
Principal migration agent at VISAFAQ (and employer sponsor visa services website sponsor-connect.com.au) Mr Paul Sadler has written hundreds of training plans for private and government clients as well as migration agents and lawyers representing clients in Training Visa applications.
The process used by Mr Sadler in composing each training plan is to analyse the skills and competencies of the trainee and to draft a training program around specific and targeted skills deficits.
