Training

Our expert immigration team is pleased to offer training for HR personnel, in-house counsel, managers and staff.

Our standard training offering includes in-depth training on key immigration topics such as the right to work and sponsorship. We also present shorter sessions to provide an overview, focus on an area, or to examine topical issues like GDPR through an immigration lens. Bespoke training on particular areas can be arranged.

Sessions can be run virtually, at our offices or yours. Courses are offered on a fixed fee basis.
