Scottish Fresh Talent

Post by ksegal » Wed Feb 24, 2010 5:36 am


I would like if someone knows if I will be able to claim 1.5 years I worked under Fresh Talent in Scotland before switching to Tier 1 General for ILR. Can the 5 year work period required for ILR be a combination of Tier1 Genreal (3.5 years) and Scottish Fresh Talent (1.5 years).

I will be grateful for any help.

Fresh Talent doesn't count toward work-based ILR, does for 10 and 14 year stay tho.
