What’s this webinar about?

Since the introduction of the Skilled Worker visa route (replacing Tier 2 (General)) and introduction of requirements for European Economic Area (EEA) and Swiss nationals now to obtain visas in order to work in the UK more and more schools are turning to the immigration system to secure the best teachers and senior staff. It is therefore vital that school HR teams are aware of how these changes will affect their activities as employers and sponsors.

This webinar will explore the following topics:

  • skilled worker visa sponsorship and how it differs from Tier 2
  • satisfying the genuine vacancy requirement
  • choosing occupation codes and meeting the salary thresholds
  • complying with your sponsorship duties
  • reporting to UKVI​
  • what to do when things go wrong
  • hiring EEA nationals post-Brexit
  • conducting Right to Work checks
  • the impact of coronavirus (COVID-19) on the immigration system

Book early to secure your place – we will be capping the number of delegates for this session, as we would like to keep the session interactive and allow plenty of time for you to ask questions to our experts.

We hope you are able to join us. If you have any queries, please contact the Events team.
