what happens after the NVQ? any filipinos in uk? share your stories please.
I'm not a Filipino, but I do live in the UK. I'm a bit confused by your question though. You may like to elaborate, as I can't see a point in someone coming from the Phillipines to study for a NVQ in the UK. Nursing itself is at diploma and degree level only (healthcare assistants take NVQs, for example).
Maybe this is what you're looking for: If you studied for a NVQ here, you'd be on a student visa, which means you could work up to 20 hours during term-time and 40 hours during holidays. A NVQ wouldn't qualify you for a work permit, though, so you would have to return to your home country once you'd completed it. Even a newly qualified nurse (diploma/degree) doesn't currently attract a work permit.
is it advisable to like go there and study and work at the same time? i mean can you really earn money to pay for the school at the same time manage daily expenses? im just curious on how it works..i just read it online and i dont know anyone whose done it yet? thanks

twoka we have yet to hear from anyone first hand who has done this and been successful in all that these companies promise.
The reality is it is very unlikely that you will be earn enough on the hours you are legally allowed to work to survive in the UK.
Without substantial savings (which I think you'd have to prove nowadays to get your student visa anyway), I think it'd be very difficult to pay international student fees to attend university and work the restricted 20 hours/week term-time and 40 hours/week holiday-time. I, personally, just don't think it's worth it.
yeah..maybe its not a good things im just wondering options since for june 2006 batch who do not pass the retake like myself has limited options..anyway thanks
I did not sought consultation or assistance from any agencies offering work and study program, what I did was browse through colleges and universities under the list of Tier 4 sponsors (student visa) and filled out application forms. Currently, I was offered to take a Post Graduate Course in Nursing Management which would run for 13 month with 6-9 months work placement. I'm really after pursuing further studies and not the employment opportunity, but I also want to assure that I'd be able to support myself there - aside from the support I would get from my relatives based in UK. I'm waiting for my results in the local licensure exams but after this, I would pay the tuition fee so that I could start with the program. My question is, after I finish my studies there, would I be able to qualify for the adaptation program for overseas nurses there? Would post-grad studies and experience count? Kindly enlighten me with this. I'm opting to get a Tier 1 Post Study Work Visa after my Student Visa expires.
Burbeestar unless you are actually working as a nurse I would not consider a full time course in nursing management expereince as working as a nurse. As a recruiter, I wouldn't even consider you for an interview.
You would need to check with the NMC if they will accept your post grad course acceptable for the adaptation program, but as you will be working as a student not as a qualified nurse I would be surprised if this will count as expereince.
Training programs are just that, they are considered as if the nurse was a student and not working in the role of the RN and getting paid for it. It is not going to count as current work experience so that will actually be a hinderance to you and not a help. Next is without current work experience there in a paid role as an RN, you are not going to be able to get a work visa to remain there, other than the program that they have similar to that of the OPT in the US.
They have actually had hiring freezes in place longer than the retrogression in the US.
Student visas do not permit work for more than the specific hours, and usually twenty and it would not be at RN rate. So it would be most difficult to support yourself as well as pay tuition. You also need to provide proof of funds available to suuport yourself while you are there to even qualify for the visa.
These programs that you are wanting to do, are not further degrees but only certification programs and they are not going to be useful in you getting a job in the UK to remain there nor for any other country. Actually will make it worse for the others, because they all wanting current work experience.
