The UK Border Agency (UKBA) have introduced a new requirement stating that any institute of higher education wishing to sponsor international students on their courses must have applied for a licence to recruit temporary migrants by March 2009. As a licenced sponsor, both colleges and universities have to follow terms and conditions of the licence set up by immigration control. These include:
Focus Time & Attendance systems are the ideal way in which to keep track of a large number of students and also provides the reporting facility which will aid in complying with the immigration controls requirements. Our Focus Pro software is designed to be a comprehensive time and attendance solution with flexible features for a wide variety of organisations including educational facilities. Features most likely to be relevant for higher education institutes include:
Define an unlimited number of groups to categorise your students. Groups are used for reporting and filtering purposes and therefore suitable categories might include departments, tutor groups, year groups, courses etc...
Download clocking transactions from the clocking terminals into the database every few seconds. Once the clocking are downloaded the Watch window allows you to immediately identify which students are currently clocked in and when students last clocked out.
Report on who was clocked in at a specific time in the past, perfect for identifying who was present during an incident or quickly verifying attendance.
See at a glance when a student has been absent. You can record specific reasons of absence such as sickness, university holiday, work placement from this screen. Group absences can be booked for a number of students in the availability screen also.
Keep track on all your student's movements. The timesheet's record all the clocking's made by your students during the day and calculates the amount of time they have been on-site. The system even records if the student is late on-site to a scheduled appointment should this be a required function.
Quickly identify occasions when a student forgets to clock, when the student is absent but was expected on-site and when a student has been on-site for less or more time than expected.
The Absence Periods Report is particularly useful for fulfilling the UKBA requirements for tracking international student attendance as it will enable the user to produce a report of all students who have been absent for 10 consecutive days or more.
