A new list of approved English language test providers is being planned.
"From 9 December until 31 January 2011, The Border Agency (UKBA) are conducting an exercise to produce a new list of approved test providers for migrants who must pass an English language test as part of their application to enter or remain in the UK:
- under Tiers 1, 2 and 4 of the points-based system; or
- as the partner of a British citizen or settled person.
Test providers can apply for inclusion on this list if their tests are suitable for migrants under any or all of the above immigration routes. Our English language test providers page http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/employers/esol-providers/ explains how to apply and the criteria that test providers must meet.
The new list of providers will be in place for April 2011, and will replace all existing lists currently in place.
Before April 2011, we will publish full transitional arrangements for migrants who need to take or have already taken a test"
