Immigration applications (Tier 2) - sponsoring migrant workers

Who should attend

This Immigration applications (Tier 2) sponsoring migrant workers training course is aimed at HR professionals, recruiters and employers looking to apply for a sponsor licence in the near future.

Synopsis

The Government proposes to introduce a new immigration system after 2021 which is likely to be the most important change to immigration law in 50 years. It is critical that UK-based employers, who cannot meet their staff needs from the local workforce, understand who may be sponsored to work for them.

This Immigration applications (Tier 2) - sponsoring migrant workers training course is aimed at HR and recruitment professionals with Tier 2 or Tier 5 responsibilities who deal with such applications already and knowledge of the points based system is assumed.
