Default ACS Documents Thread

Hello,
I plan to apply for my skills assessment soon, at the ACS.
I saw a lot of threads regarding the documents required by the ACS, like the employer reference letter.
I am reluctant to approach my current employer for this because they tend to give an "experience letter" only when the employee leaves the company. Also, this letter does not specify what projects I worked on and the details about those projects. It only specifies the dates through which I was employed and some other more generalized stuff.
This means that I need to submit a statutory declaration along with my application.

Can any one of you post the format for the statutory declaration? Especially ones who have submitted this and got a positive result from the ACS?

Later on this thread I will also post a proper checklist etc. and the format/information for all the documents that I will send to the ACS. That is why I have given this thread the name "ACS Documents Thread". I hope that through the life-cycle of my ACS application, this thread becomes very informative for all the forum members who are interested in it.


Thanks for your help.
Zeiger

Hi zeiger,

I'm fairly certain that is you search for stat dec there is thread with that info on it since this has been asked before.

Regards,
Karen

I typed "Statutory Declaration" and searched the first 10 threads but found no sample for a Statutory Declaration. Although I found some information about its contents.
What I will do is make one, then post it here and then may be, you can see if that's ok?

I have a few more questions regarding the documents:
1. I plan to submit my ex-managers reference letter. It is not on the company letter head though because he has left the company. According to the PASA guidelines, if I submit this reference, I need to submit it along with a Statutory Declaration. Does my ex-manager need to sign it or should I be the one signing on it. Is the stat dec required for reference letters?
2. According to PASA guidelines, if I submit a reference, I need to show an Organizational chart as well, showing the hierarchy and where my manager belongs. And this needs to be signed by someone who has a higher post than that of my manager. Is this really necessary? Or is just a good old reference enough?

Thanks,
Zeiger

my husband got his skill assessed 2 yrs back, we gave a stat dec as it was not possible for him to provide manager reference, he did ask for it and they in turn asked him to sign a bond with the company along with a condition of increasing his notice period form one month to 3-4 months which ofcourse was not fine by him.

all he did was gave colleagues ref letters with their i cards and business cards, stat dec, company brochure/profile, all work related documents like certificate of excellence, apptment letter, confirmation letter, IT return, bank statements, pay slips etc etc

hi there,

i just received my acs letter which states

" the applicant has master of science (computer science) from ECU completed july 2010 which has been assessed as comparable to an australian masters degree with a major in computing in a field, irrelavant to the nominated skilled occupation, and therefore does not meet the requirements for the qualification as prescribed in the PIM3"

while applying i wasnt sure of which anzsco code i come under so i applied under 261399 (s/w and applications programmer nec) as suggested by ISCAH migration.

can anyone plz explain me what it means?

does it meant that im eligible for 50 points when apply for tr?

Thanks in advance,
Mike.

Hi Anj1976,
Apart from all educational documents, I plan to give the following with my application:
1. Statutory Declaration containing details of all projects I worked on, my roles and responsibilities in each project and also what technologies I used
2. My managers reference letter, and on that reference letter, there will be his contact details. It will NOT be on a company letterhead though, it would be a personal reference letter but it will have his designation, contact details etc.
3. Company brochures with details about what it does
4. All salary slips
5. Contract letter with my company
6. Award letters for the awards given to me by the company
7. My IT Returns for the past 3 years

Would this be enough?
Can you also, give me a template for the statutory declaration?

Thanks,
Zeiger

Also, does my manager also need to give a Statutory Declaration for the reference letter that he provides?
And what about the Organizational chart? Is that really necessary?
