Event description

Description

This full-day workshop will provide delegates with an introduction to the fundamentals of the law of asylum and international protection, and will be of interest to professionals who work with asylum seekers, refugees and migrants who would like a better understanding of the legal frameworks that govern seeking international protection in the UK. We will look at the definition of a refugee in international law, and discuss the process of claiming asylum in the UK, as well as some of the challenges of working with individuals seeking asylum.

Taken together with OISC Level 1: An Introduction to EEA Free Movement and Immigration Law, this workshop aims to prepare delegates to take and complete the required exams in order to become an OISC Level 1 regulated immigration advisor.

Objectives

By the end of this workshop, delegates will be able to:

  • Explain the legal framework which governs seeking asylum and claiming international protection in the UK
  • Outline the definition of a refugee in international law and identify different types of claims for international protection
  • Identify common barriers to claiming asylum in the UK and challenges of working with individuals seeking asylum
  • Prepare effectively for the OISC Level 1 regulated immigration advisor exams

Target Audience

This workshop will be of interest to professionals who work with asylum seekers, refugees or migrants, particularly in statutory services or third sector organisations, such as in social work or advocacy services. It may be useful to individuals who are seeking to add skills and increase their employability by qualifying as a regulated OISC Level 1 immigration adviser.
