A seminar for key personnel – Authorising Officers, Key Contacts, Level 1 and 2 users of the sponsor management system.
A working knowledge of immigration law and practice has never been so important to independent schools as today...
An estimated 750 independent schools are registered with UK Visas and Immigration under Tier 4 and independent schools sponsor around 15,000 overseas pupils each year.
The Government continues to target net migration and oversees students, bringing pressure to bear on schools, pupils and staff – particularly those within schools who have a front line role in dealing with UKVI.
UKVI guidance for school sponsors and pupil applicants is regularly reissued, making keeping up to date challenging but vital.
Last year, UKVI:
- Carried out 113 compliance visits to Tier 4 sponsors, the majority of which were unannounced
- Threatened 102 Tier 4 sponsors with the loss of their licence
- Revoked 43 Tier 4 licences
We will provide comprehensive coverage of all topics relevant to independent schools, including:
Course materials will be aimed at key personnel – Authorising Officers, Key Contacts, Level 1 and 2 users of the sponsor management system.
