The UK Border Agency has published key dates for colleges and educational providers which will need to apply for ‘highly trusted’ status.

The announcement in full:

If you are a Tier 4 (General) sponsor and you want to sponsor students as a Highly Trusted sponsor, remember the following key dates:

22 March 2010

The Highly Trusted Sponsor Scheme is launched. Guidance, criteria and application forms are published on the UKBA website. The UK Border Agency starts to accept applications for Highly Trusted sponsor licences.

6 April 2010

New Immigration Rules come into force, restricting some course types to Highly Trusted sponsors.

Some publicly funded sponsors will be deemed to hold a Highly Trusted sponsor licence from this date, pending a successful application. They will be placed on the register of Highly Trusted sponsors from this date.

Privately funded sponsors who hold a standard A-rated licence can continue to assign confirmations of acceptance for studies (CASs) for restricted courses until the end of April, pending an application for a Highly Trusted sponsor licence.

30 April 2010

Deadline for privately funded, A-rated sponsors to apply for a Highly Trusted sponsor licence, if they want to continue to assign CASs for restricted courses after this date. If they have not applied by this date, they cannot continue to assign CAS’s for these courses from 1 May 2010.

30 May 2010

This is the date by which we would like all publicly funded sponsors to apply for a Highly Trusted sponsor licence, if they were deemed to hold a Highly Trusted sponsor licence from 6 April 2010 and they wish to retain that status after 30 June 2010. However, the actual deadline is 30 June 2010.

30 June 2010

End of transitional period. CASs for restricted courses can only be assigned by sponsors who:

  • are publicly funded, were deemed to hold a Highly Trusted sponsor licence from 6 April 2010, have applied for a Highly Trusted sponsor licence, and have been granted that licence or are awaiting a decision; or
  • are privately funded, were A-rated sponsors, and have applied for and been granted a Highly Trusuted sponsor licence.

For more information about Highly Trusted sponsors, see the Highly Trusted Sponsor Scheme pages on the UK Border Agency website.
