Hi there, I have Master degree in Political science and working as a social worker in a NGO since last 8 years. Will I be qualify for 4152 social workers category.

Anonymous said...

Thank you, but politcal science is a subject which is under the faculty of social science. Like Botany is a subject under Biology. That means under biologist category a graduate in Botany can apply for biologist category. That is why I thought political science gradute can apply for social worker category if they have work experience in social work field. Thank you for your kind clarification.

Hi Comrade,

I have a Bachelors Degree in Engineering in 2003, and did some separate courses in PC Hardware & Networking in 2004 and worked in the IT field as a Computer Technician / Administrator from 2004 - 2008 (4.5 years). Then I lost interest in my field of work and worked on my own marketing business and did part-time Social Work with a friend who was working in an NGO.

Through my friend, I can get an experience letter from the NGO stating I worked with them since 2009 till date as a Social Worker. I have not done any formal training in Social Work.

Since IT occupations are not among the 29 qualifying occupations on the NOC, I am thinking of applying for Canada Skilled Worker Immigration under the Social Worker NOC # 4152.

I qualify for 10 points for Age & 16 points for English Language. I don't know French yet, so let's ignore those points. If I get 20 points for Education & 21 for Work Experience, my total reaches 67 points. I don't get any points in the other sections.

How many points do I score for Education (regular Bachelors - Electronics & Telecommunications Engineeering 4 years Degree, and 12 years of full-time schooling) ? I think I should qualify for 20 points here.

How many points do I get for my Work Experience ? I think I should get 21 points for >4 years of working in IT field & 2 years of working as a Social Worker.

Please guide whether I am correct in my assumptions of the points I can gain under the Education & Work Experience sections.

What kind of documents should I provide to prove my experience in Social Work, considering my case ?
Kindly advise how to immigrate successfully in my case.

Thanks for your support.

Based on my 19 years of working experience I consider myself as one of the outstanding candidates for the declared post community social worker in Canada or USA- Among my entire life work experience tenure, 13 years I have worked for NGOs that covers- Community Capacity Building both for Rural & Urban Areas, Institutional Progress, Social Awareness, Civic Engagement, Economic Promotion, Human Rights, Disaster Preparedness, Health Awareness, Non-formal Primary Education, School Preparedness Program, maintaining liaisons with local Government (GOs & NGOs). My experience derives me to think and perform- clearly as well as analytically. I also have the willingness to travel as and when required for the sake of my job. Even though having work load, priority setting and completion of job on time makes me confident to be one of the outstanding performers as well. I believe that I do have the leadership of circumstances handling and it would help for achieving mission and objective for any organization. I completed Masters in Philosophy. I want to migrate from Bangladesh to Canada or USA. I have one daughter .My husband also work in an NGO as a Upazilla Manager . My Date of birth is 4July,1973.

Can I apply under 4152 category ?
Doesn't impact the application process for the academic degree in Sociology instead of Social Work?
Do I need any membership in a association of social workers for application process ?

Kindly reply me readers besides Mr. Comprade.

Thanks for your cooperation.

Best Regards,

Samiha Sultana Jue.

Dear Comrde,
It was nice to see that so many people rely on your reply and your help is very valuable but I did not find answer to few questions from above forum which you did not answer. Please let me know how important is it to match your qualification with the degree you have?? like if are MBA so you cant apply under social worker category?? IS it a must since I never find that at CIC web site or any other forum but you said before its a requisite so please elaborate.Since I did my MBA and worked as Social Worker Supervisor since4 years in SChool and I have prepared my case so should I apply or I must get degree before I do?? Anticipating early reponse.
Thanks.

Hi Comrade

I have a three year degree in Bachelor of Commerce. I am working with one NGO and one Trust which works for women upliftment in society. I think with commerce degree I will not be able to apply under 4152. what you say ?

moreover, if I get a degree of MSW (Mster in social work) thru distance learning (correspondance) mode now, then my previous work experience as social worker ill be counted or only my expereience after getting the MSW degree will only be counted ?

please guide me properly.

regards
