We are pleased to share with you our new date for our popular Immigration Law Academy. This will be delivered virtually via Webex as a set of two sessions.
We appreciate that during the current time of working remotely and social distancing, training on key topics and connecting with colleagues and peers is more important than ever. Designed for junior and mid-level HR professionals, the course will help attendees to develop their skills in key areas of immigration law, including the implications of COVID-19, Brexit and the post-January 2021 immigration system. It also serves as a useful tool to upskill members of your team who are involved in visa work.
Delivered in a practical and engaging way, our courses use real-life examples and case studies to really bring the issues to life. Although delivered virtually, our Immigration Law Academy will remain as interactive as ever and will ensure you benefit from being able to ask the questions you want of our experts.
The academy will cover the key immigration law topics of Brexit and preparing for the end of the transition period, sponsoring Tier 2 workers and prevention of illegal working as well as ensuring you are up to speed on the Home Office’s COVID-19 immigration guidance. Delivered by lawyers from our immigration team, it also includes insights into upcoming developments, such as the Government’s plans for the future UK immigration system.
In order to make the sessions suitable for a home working environment, we will be running the Academy as two separate 2 hour sessions on the 8th and 9th June from 2.00 to 4.00pm on Monday and 10.00am to 12.00pm on Tuesday.
The cost of each place will be £295+VAT.
