UK Working Visa - Training and Work Experience Scheme TWES Permits

The Training and Work Experience Scheme (TWES) enables UK employers to provide Training for a Professional or Specialist Qualification, or Work Experience to a person from abroad that needs permission to work in the United Kingdom. TWES permits are a specific type of work permit.

TWES visas are normally only issued for up to 2 years, and at the end of this period the candidate must stay outside the UK for at least 1 year. TWES visas are issued on the understanding that the candidate wishes to take their skills back to their home country, and does not intend to settle in the UK. Many candidates in the UK on TWES visas decide at some stage that they would rather be on a work permit.

TWES permits are not issued for Training and Work Experience below NVQ Level 3.

Switching to a Work Permit

Switching from a TWES visa (Training) to a work permit is not normally permitted, unless training has been undertaken which has led to a professional qualification (e.g. ACCA, RIBA). In very exceptional circumstances, Work Permits (UK) may allow a switch between the two based on invaluable specialist knowledge or inside company knowledge. Such an application would of course require the employer to test the resident workforce. However it is an individual who is on a work experience part of the TWES that cannot switch to a Business & Commercial work permit.
