About this course
This standard level course offers an opportunity for advisers to gain knowledge and confidence to advise non-European nationals on how their immigration status affects their entitlement to benefits. The course takes a step-by-step approach and looks in-depth at how the rules apply to different scenarios.
The course covers:
- Who is a ‘person subject to immigration control’
- Which benefits they are excluded from and the exceptions
- When a ‘no recourse to public funds’ restriction is relevant
- How a change in immigration status affects entitlement to benefits
- The benefit entitlements of someone living with a partner or child with a different immigration status
This ‘one-day equivalent’ standard level course is aimed at those who advise non-European nationals on their benefit entitlements. If you also advise European nationals, you should also book on the course Benefits for EEA nationals.
