Tier 4 and sponsor compliance

Since the introduction in April 2009 of Tier 4 of the Points-Based System, issues around the system have become central to the work of all parts of any institution with a Tier 4 sponsor licence.

This seminar is tutored for UKCISA by Penningtons Manches LLP. It will clarify the compliance duties that institutions must undertake to maintain their Tier 4 licence. It will cover:

  • sponsor responsibilities
  • Basic Compliance Assessment
  • recruitment and use of agents
  • monitoring, reporting and record keeping
  • Home Office assessments
  • dealing with negative decisions
  • other protective measures and best practice

The presentation will be followed by a Question & Answer session.
