In order to recruit and register students who need a Tier 4 visa to study in the UK the University is registered with the Home Office as a Tier 4 sponsor.  As a Tier 4 sponsor licence holder we have a number of responsibilities and obligations to meet and it’s important that staff working with Tier 4 students’ have an awareness of these. This session will give you an overview of the requirements and confirm what you need to know in order to help the University retain its Tier 4 sponsor licence.  The session is taking place on Monday 19 March at 11am in TF.2.16  in Southend and will last no more than an hour.  Please go to HR Organiser to book a place.

Looking after our campus

Filed under: Southend Bulletin — Nicola Paine @ 3:51 am

As we get into the swing of a new term, it is important we all play our part in helping to maintain the quality and cleanliness of the campus, particularly focusing on our teaching spaces.

Could I please remind all staff only water should be taken into lecture rooms and the lecture theatre.  No food, hot drinks or other soft drinks are allowed in lecture rooms and we ask that you remind people of this should the situation arise.  Lecture rooms should all have signage to this effect (if signage is missing, please let us know).  This is to help maintain the cleanliness of rooms.      We had a number of incidents of hot drinks spillages in lecture rooms last term and these weren’t reported which makes it much harder to clean.   Please report any spillages straight away to or call the helpdesk for the relevant building (numbers are in the lecture rooms).  The sooner spillages are reported, the easier they are to clean.

There are recycling bins in communal areas for all waste and staff and students should be encouraged to use these.  Please do not leave any rubbish in lecture rooms.

Thank you for your help in maintaining our Southend Campus
