Senior Staff Meeting

Increased Immigration Controls

Removal of the Default Retirement Age

February 16 2011


Types of visa

Types of Visa

  • Tier 1: Highly skilled workers, meet the minimum number of Points, self sponsored and relates to the individual not the post;

  • Tier 2: Skilled workers with an offer of a post from a UK employer, the recruitment to which meets the UKBA standards, requires the organisation to have a Certificate of Sponsorship (CoS);

  • Tiers 3 to 5: less widely used in the School, include Student Visas, Post Study Work Visas, short term Researchers.


Increased immigration controls

Increased Immigration Controls

From 5 April 2011, UKBA introduce significant reductions in the national quota of overseas workers, and increased requirements to justify their employment

The majority will now require a Certificate of Sponsorship (CoS): reduced for LSE last year from 13 to11 for July 10 – March 11

Likely to be a monthly national quota: doesn’t sit with cycle of recruitment

Further intervention anticipated on criteria and approval process for Tier 1; Indefinite Leave to Remain; treatment of Extensions vs new applications.


What has been done already

What has been done already

LSE has an ‘A’ graded Sponsorship Licence, right to work in UK checks undertaken by HR, monitoring location of overseas staff, records and processes in line with UKBA requirements

Guidance on web site and responses to consultation/lobbying input

Pro-actively supported Tier 1, until that too restricted recently

Carefully monitored Tier 2 and extensions to manage limited supply


What we now need to do differently

What we now need to do differently

HR to continue to promote Tier 1 when new criteria clear;

HR to promote Indefinite Leave to Remain, when guidance clear;

HR to continue to maintain current knowledge of changes and communicate to units/on web;

Consider ways to ‘grow our own’.


Background to removal of the default retirement age dra

Background to Removal of the Default Retirement Age (DRA)

  • Government confirmed DRA to be abolished 1st October 2011
