Waiting for Indefinite Leave to Remain - Can I lose my job?

    I am guessing from your post you are an overseas trained teacher working here on a work permit or visa? Your school cannot legally retain the services of someone who does not have the legal permit to work in the UK.
  2. I guess my teaching career in the UK is over. :(

    Without a valid Visa or work permit any career in the UK would be over. Is there any way of applying again for a specific length of time rather than indefinite leave to remain?
  4. It is not that you "can be sacked", it is that the school is obliged to terminate your employment. You need to notify your school that your request for ILT has been rejected (it is an offence not to notify them).
    No. It is your responsibility to make sure you have the right to live and work in the UK.
  5. Phone the Border Agency & explain. Ask them if you can continue to work as your application is in process.You can always return at a later date if your application is granted.
    Tell the school the truth, that your application is being considered by the Border Agency, you may find there is a "grace period" with the visa you have if you are applying for ILR, particularly as the ILR is being considered.
