Compliance with Tier 2 sponsor obligations - webinar

Who should attend

This training event is aimed at anyone who works in the education sector with a responsibility for recruiting or managing staff from outside the EEA or plays a part in ensuring their institution’s compliance with the immigration rules.


Education providers who employ or wish to employ non-EEA staff need to sponsor them, most likely under the Tier 2 (General) route. Tier 2 has been subject to a number of recent changes and although the sponsorship system may well change fundamentally from 2021, in the interim institutions need to comply with the current rules.

In this Webinar we will remind you of the key requirements of the Tier 2 sponsorship system including:

− certificates of sponsorship

− skill level

− salary

− the Resident Labour Market Test

− English language requirements

− maintenance

− extensions and change of employment

− sponsor duties – record keeping and reporting

− preventing illegal working

− suspension, downgrade and revocation of sponsor licence
