Training for Sponsor Licence Holders
Our immigration experts manage sponsor licences for a large number of organisations, including issuing Certificates of Sponsorship and updating the Sponsor Management System as needed. We are also regularly instructed by sponsors that have received a sponsor licence suspension notice from UKVI and we have had considerable success in working with the Sponsor and the UKVI to help reinstate the licence.
We draw on this expertise when training organisations on best practice. We cover a number of key areas such as compliance with the published Sponsor Duties, choosing the most appropriate Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) code, how to issue Certificates of Sponsorship and recent case law. We focus on critical areas including preventing illegal working; how best to check that employees have the correct right to work in the UK; record keeping; monitoring migrant activity and expiry dates.
We also cover the process for those applying for entry clearance or leave to remain under Tier 2 (General), Tier 2 (ICT) or Tier 5 (if relevant). This enables those who are responsible for the organisationís sponsor licence to gain an in-depth understanding of the immigration application process and requirements for employees and their family members.Immigration Training (including the new Points Based System and the EU Settlement Scheme)
We also offer training to cover other potential immigration options for business owners, directors, employees, interns, consultants and others involved with the business on understanding and managing all the points based immigration routes.Right to Work Training
