Welcome to the Immigration Compliance Network (ICN)
Note from the Chairs
Welcome to the ICN webpage to all our members. We are really pleased to be able to offer this ‘safe space’ so that members can choose to share policies and processes that you have created to manage aspects of compliance in your institutions. We will also use it to post the agendas, minutes and any presentations from both national and regional meetings. We’re also open to any ideas about other ways in which to use this space to offer the best support to fellow compliance professionals, so do give us your feedback!
Sara Smith and Naheeda Kauser (ICN Co-Chairs)
Professional immigration compliance staff at education providers across the UK are part of an ever-changing industry, we are often working in small teams or alone to ensure that the requirements and duties placed upon visa sponsors are being undertaken in line with various aspects of guidance and legislation. Immigration compliance can be a high pressured and stressful area to work in, and whilst extremely rewarding, it can be difficult to get around complex issues and changes without support!
We are a network of colleagues and peers from Higher Education providers, Further Education colleges and Private Providers, set up to create a support network and forum to share good practice, interpretations and to contribute to lobbying efforts made by the UK Council for International Student Affairs (UKCISA). It is run by a committee of volunteers from the sector.
