ISI’s educational oversight

ISC sent out an alert before Christmas on the possible impact ISI inspections could have on a school’s Tier 4 sponsor licence.

ISC sent out an alert before Christmas on the possible impact ISI inspections could have on a school’s Tier 4 sponsor licence. This was sent following rumours that UKVI is suspending the licence of schools that fail an ISI inspection on any grounds. UKVI is not suspending licences but, as ISI is UKVI’s educational oversight body for Association schools, they will reduce a sponsor’s CAS to zero where they do not achieve the ‘required rating’.

ISC is seeking for the threshold for this to be when a school receives a notice from DfE as opposed to non-compliance under any one Part of the ISSRs and UKVI has confirmed they will liaise and discuss this with DfE and ISI.

ISC continues to work with the Home Office and UKVI to ensure transparency and clarity on when a school’s CAS will be impacted and how a school can rectify this without undue delay.
