Event description

Description

This full-day workshop will provide delegates with an introduction to the fundamentals of EEA free movement law and UK immigration law, and will be of interest to professionals who work with EEA nationals or migrants and who would like a better understanding of the legal frameworks that govern EEA free movement rights and UK immigration applications. We will look at the process that individuals require to complete to apply for visas (entry clearance) from abroad, and some of the considerations in making in-country immigration applications for settlement and British citizenship.

Taken together with OISC Level 1: An Introduction to Asylum and International Protection, 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 UK immigration law and EEA free movement rights
  • Highlight the rights and entitlements of EEA nationals and discuss some ways in which this may change after Brexit
  • Identify common challenges in framing UK immigration and British citizenship applications and offer practical solutions
  • Prepare effectively for the OISC Level 1 regulated immigration advisor exams

Target Audience

This workshop will be of interest to professionals who work with EEA nationals or migrants, whether in service delivery or as colleagues in the workplace, for example, in HR positions in the public or private sector, or as an international student advisor in colleges or universities. It may also be of interest to individuals who work in statutory services or third sector organisations who work with asylum seeking, refugee or migrant populations, such as in social work or advocacy services. Finally, 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.
