These measures include:
a programme of visits by IND to educational establishments where we have doubts about their status; a new DfES registration scheme for all genuine institutions by the end of the year; and more Risk Assessment Units in our embassies abroad to improve the flow of intelligence about fraud or abuse.
To date we have assessed 1,050 education institutions. Over 25 per cent. have been identified as bogus and a further 25 per cent. require a more detailed visit. Our initial investigations will be completed by December of this year.
We are working closely with the English Language sector to move towards comprehensive accreditation of all private English Language schools taking overseas students.
And we are also working with education sector representatives to agree procedures for notifying us of all overseas students who fail to attend courses.
