FIAP stands for Frontline Immigration Advice Project. FIAP helps organisations provide accurate, good quality advice to vulnerable migrants. Without it they face injustice and destitution.

We train advisers and help organisations to register with Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner (OISC), then we continue to support them in their practice.

Who we work with

We work with all not-for-profit frontline organisations, whether you: 

  • Want to register with the OISC
  • Are already OISC registered and want to improve your service or get higher qualifications
  • Are unsure about registering and want to explore whether it is right for you
  • Don’t need to register, but want to understand immigration advice and how to work within its legal boundaries

What we offer

  • Training in immigration law at OISC Levels One and Two. Study support for OISC assessments.
  • Guidance through the OISC registration process
  • Immigration Advisor Handbook - a practical guide on your journey to becoming a confident immigration adisor
  • Ongoing support and Continuous Professional Development to students and organisations enrolled in the FIAP programme
  • Awareness raising sessions to help unregistered organisations work within legal boundaries
  • Needs assessments and advice model development for organisations who are unsure about their requirement to register

'The training environment was so congenial and friendly, the quality of training was marvellous with clarity, brevity and specific to the subject.'
'Thanks for the most recent CoP meeting. I can’t tell you how brilliant it is to be involved in this network!'
'James at FIAP was a great help. As I’m the only OISC trainer in my organisation, it was good to have someone to bounce ideas off.'
