Employers: Educational oversight registration for new applications opens 1 August to 30 September 2013

09 July 2013

Education providers in England and Wales who want to obtain educational oversight as part of an application to join the Tier 4 sponsor register will be able to between 1 August and 30 September 2013.

As a new applicant you must have established a track record of at least 1 year of teaching before applying for educational oversight.

Full assessments of new applicants will begin in 2014, and will start the sponsor's 4 year educational oversight cycle. This process repeats annually to allow new sponsors to join the register.


Providers in Scotland or Northern Ireland should consult Education Scotland or the Education and Training Inspectorate Northern Ireland on the window for applications.

We have agreed with the oversight organisations for England and Wales that this period will be time-limited to enable them to plan their assessment schedules for the coming year.
