Tier 4 sponsors – guidance published in a new format
04 October 2011
We have published the Tier 4 guidance in a different format.
Sponsors should be aware that the content of this document is the same as the guidance we published on 5 September 2011.
The new Tier 4 guidance covers:
- Highly Trusted Sponsorship (HTS), including the date by which Tier 4 sponsors who are not already highly trusted need to apply for HTS by; what will happen to existing Tier 4 sponsors who do not apply for HTS by the deadline or who do apply and fail; and details of transitional arrangements for sponsors who are not already highly trusted.
- educational oversight, confirming the previously announced detail of the new approach, including a reminder of the date by which applications should be made and to which oversight body; and information Tier 4 sponsors who either do not apply by the specified deadline or who apply and fail to obtain it.
You can download the sponsor guidance from our Guidance for sponsors page.
