This training is for all those who manage and administer immigration and right to work procedures in departments and colleges, rather than visa holders.  We also provide a visa holder briefing session for Skilled Worker and Tier 5 visa holders.

It is mandatory for all staff whose job description includes checking right to work documentation to attend a 'Right to Work training session'*. If they have not already done so, before they carry out any right to work checks.

Training sessions are offered for administrators within the collegiate University only.

The following sessions are currently available:

  • Tier 5 - Home Office requirements for visiting researchers sponsored under Tier 5
  • Right to Work (departments)* - Right to Work requirements for all staff employed in University departments
  • Right to Work (colleges)* - Right to Work requirements for all staff, tailored specifically for colleges
  • Visitors - Home Office requirements for those coming under Business, Academic and PPE Visitor visas
  • Global Talent - Home Office requirements for academics and researchers endorsed under the Global Talent route
  • Skilled Worker - Home Office requirements for employees sponsored under Skilled Worker.

Please note: Dates for Skilled Worker training will be released once the Home Office publishes full details on the changes expected to be implemented for Spring 2024. In the meantime please direct any specific training needs on the Skilled Worker route to Lisa Crook
