Skilled Worker Visas for all teachers including OTTs
LDBS is an “A rated” sponsor for Skilled Worker visas.
If you have any OTTs (overseas trained teachers) on a Tier 5 Youth Mobility visa and you would like to keep them please email firstname.lastname@example.org who can explain the UKVI visa process which needs to be followed and will also let you know the breakdown of the application fees and Home Office costs. The earlier we start the certificate of sponsorship process the better.
LDBS can also apply for a Skilled Worker visa if your teacher cannot get a Tier 5 Youth Mobility visa or your teacher needs a Skilled Worker visa extension (we get an annual allocation every April for undefined Certificates of Sponsorship and need to apply for these by the end of December).
On the 1st January 2021, free movement ended and the UK introduced a new points-based immigration system. The new system treats EU and non-EU citizens equally and has transformed the way in which all migrants come to the UK to work and study. Anyone coming to the UK to work or study, excluding Irish citizens, will need to apply for permission in advance.
We are also able to issue an undefined CoS for Tier 4 student visas switching into Skilled Worker visas.
Please be aware that there is no guarantee that every application will be successful but the more time and notice we are given the better.
When you need our support please involve us as early as possible.
