Find a learning aim
Find a learning aim has replaced the Learning aims reference service (LARS) as the service that holds information about learning aims, their validity and funding data where applicable. It is maintained by the ESFA.
Updates to the database are made regularly and versions of the database are available for download.
Each learning aim on the database has a reference code that is used to record it in the Learning aim reference field on the ILR.
The database holds all the learning aim specific information that you will need.
If you have a specific query about Find a learning aim, please submit your query through our enquiry form.
