About this course

Whether you are advising an established company employing many foreign workers, or a small business preparing to employ their first foreign hire, it’s crucial to understand the rules and regulations set out in the Sponsor Guidance and under various UK legislation. Failing to do so can be severe for businesses and all of their workers.

In this expert-led training webinar, we’ll equip you with actionable advice and practical strategies on how to apply for sponsor licences. We’ll cover key areas including:

  • how to prepare a sponsor licence application
  • addressing common problems encountered by employers
  • proactive measures for maintaining compliance, including insight on compliance visits and conducting mock audits
  • understanding the consequences of compliance failures, from downgrading to suspension and revocation

Detailed but not overwhelming. The examples where good and illustrated complex parts well. The quiz at the end was very good.
