The training provided for immigration adjudicators, organised and facilitated by senior judicial members of the immigration appellate authority (IAA), is tailored to be legislatively relevant, and to reflect the changing environment of asylum and immigration decision making. In 2004 the chief adjudicator introduced a dedicated post of training adjudicator, which has improved the development, and delivery, of training packages to reflect the needs of immigration adjudicators in what is a rapidly developing jurisdiction. The training adjudicator is currently responsible for the facilitation of a series of judicial training conferences, underpinning the transition from the IAA into the Asylum and Immigration Tribunal (AIT). These recent conferences were designed to provide the immigration judiciary with the appropriate resources, and legislative knowledge, to continue to produce high quality decisions within the new tribunal.
