With the end of free movement and the roll-out of the new immigration system now imminent, timely training and connecting with peers will help HR teams to approach 2021 with confidence. We are pleased to share with you the November 2020 dates for our popular Immigration Law Academy. This will be delivered online via Webex as a set of two sessions.

Designed for junior and mid-level HR professionals, the course will cover the key immigration law topics of Brexit and preparing for the end of the transition period, sponsoring skilled workers and preventing illegal working, as well as ensuring you are up to speed on the Home Office’s COVID-19 immigration guidance. Alongside helping attendees to develop their skills in these areas, it also serves as a useful tool to upskill members of the team who are involved in visa work.

Delivered in a practical and engaging way by lawyers from our immigration team, our courses use real-life examples and case studies to really bring the issues to life. Although delivered online, our Immigration Law Academy is as interactive as ever and will ensure you benefit from being able to ask the questions you want of our experts.

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 23rd November from 2pm to 4pm and 24th November from 10am to 12.30pm.
