BAC/Study UK event - Introduction of the Sponsor Management System

26 February 2010

On 17 February, 2010, Study UK and the BAC jointly hosted an event at Regent's College, to help colleges prepare for the introduction of the Sponsor Management System.

Delegates were split into two groups and enjoyed presentations from a number of speakers including Bharat Pamnani from the UK Border Agency, Steve Bristow, Head of Inspections at the BAC, and Nichola Carter, Partner at Penningtons Solicitors which specialises in immigration law.

In addition, Sue Hindley, Chair of Study UK, shared her experience of using the Sponsor Management System, highlighting the difficulties she'd encountered in creating CAS and providing tips for colleges from a practitioner's viewpoint.  

More than 150 delegates from over 120 institutions attended the event, and feedback was very positive.

Fiona Cartwright from London International College said, "I enjoyed the talk by Nichola from Penningtons. Sue from Study UK was also informative and actually went through system usage and misuse."

Annika Tayler from ESCP Europe said, "[It was] good to find out that other institutions have similar concerns and problems with these new rules."
