The colleges in question were suspended due to their sponsorship of students with questionable or invalid English language test certificates; and a poor level of compliance their with sponsorship duties. All of the colleges were given the opportunity to submit detailed representations against the suspension. Those that failed to address adequately the reasons for suspension subsequently had their sponsor licence revoked.
