This visa is open to young people from certain countries. Those countries effectively act as the ‘sponsor’ as far as UKVI is concerned (but does not require a Certificate of Sponsorship for this visa). These countries have signed an agreement with the UK to act as the sponsor for their young people who apply under the scheme (and offer a reciprocal programme to British Citizens).
Successful applicants are granted a visa for two years, during which time they can work in the UK in any capacity, except for certain forms of self-employment, working as a professional sportsperson/coach or working as a doctor/dentist in training.
