Education webinar - The skilled worker route - what do you need to know and how do you remain compliant?

Who should attend

The new immigration regime has introduced fundamental changes to the recruitment and employment of non-British and Irish nationals.


On the one hand the new rules have made it easier to sponsor workers by reducing the salary and skill requirements, removing the circumstances in which restricted certificates of sponsorship were needed and dispensing with the onerous provisions on carrying out a resident labour market test.

On the other hand, extending the categories of staff that institutions need to sponsor to those EEA nationals who have not acquired settled status, has increased the number of staff for whom institutions will incur the cost of sponsorship and for whom they have compliance obligations.

In this webinar we will cover:

  • the key requirements of the Skilled Worker route
  • skill level
  • salary
  • English language requirements
  • ATAS requirement
  • maintenance
  • extensions and change of employment
  • sponsor duties – record keeping and reporting
  • preventing illegal working and right to work checks
  • suspension, downgrade and revocation of sponsor licence
