(FULLY BOOKED) DT 1889 The EU Settlement Scheme & Children

There are more than 900,000 children of non-Irish EU citizen parents living in the UK, born either here or abroad. This included an estimated 239,000 UK-born children, some of whom may be British and others eligible to become British. 

This course will cover the best practice in advising on children's nationality and applying to the EU Settlement Scheme, as well as addressing the particular practice issues specific to children. This includes working with children in families and children born to parents at different stages of the process. It includes in particular supporting redocumenting and evidencing a child's residence. We will cover how to approach suitability issues for children and young people. Attendees will also gain an understanding of the issues facing children who are third-country family members. The course will cover Zambrano carers in brief; a separate course will focus on derivative rights more fully.
