ILR records that cross the 2021/22 and 2022/23 funding years

From: Education and Skills Funding Agency

Rationale and guidance

  • The 21/22 funding year runs from 1st Aug 2021 to the 31st July 2022. 
  • The 22/23 funding year runs from 1st Aug 2022 to the 31st July 2023.

For both of the above, dates outside of these limits will be accepted by the ILR validation, but no funding will be generated as the dates will be outside of the relevant funding year.

This is especially important where completion dates are recorded in 2022/23 data that refer to completions in the 2021/22 funding year (before 1st Aug 2022), or where completions are recorded. For example, in R13/R14 that refer to August 2022 completions.

 

Learning starts that run into the 22/23 year

Where a learning start is recorded for a learning aim:

  • dates on or before 31st July must be recorded in your R12/R13/R14 data returns
  • dates on or after the 1st August must be recorded in your R01 and onwards data returns for 22/23.

Recording learning starts dated in the 2021/22 funding year in your R01 or R02 data returns only will mean that the system will disregard the dates before the 1st August 2022 for funding purposes. This could mean that the first month of on-programme payments will be lost.

 

Continuing aims

All continuing aims are migrated by your change of learner entry from the 2021/22 version to the 2022/23 version when you import your R12 data file.

The data migration picks up all aims where the Completion status is 1, or where the Outcome is 6 or 8.

Other MIS systems should perform the same migrations of learning aims. Appendix B of the Migration Specification provides more information. 

 

Learning aims that are not part of a programme that run into the 2022/23 year

Where a completion is recorded for a learning aim:

  •  dates on or before 31st July must be recorded in your R12/R13/R14 data returns
  •  dates on or after the 1st August must be recorded in your R01 and onwards data returns for 22/23.

 

Apprenticeship completions that run into the 2022/23 year

For your 2021/22 data, when the training period for the apprenticeship standard is complete but the end point assessment period is incomplete, the Programme record must be coded as follows:

Completion - 1

Learning actual end date – Completed (this will be before 1st Aug 2022)

Outcome - 8

Achievement date - left blank

ACT to.. date – left blank

Where the Outcome is recorded as code ‘8’, the data migration process will carry the apprenticeship through to the 2022/23 data for completion to be recorded.

 

When the end point assessment for the apprenticeship standard is complete, the Outcome and Achievement fields must be updated accordingly. The record should then show:

Completion - 2

Learning actual end date - Completed (this does not change)

Outcome - 1 or 3

Achievement date – Completed (this will be on or after 1st Aug 2022)

ACT to.. date - completed to match the Achievement date.

This applies to the apprenticeship Programme (ZPROG) aim only; Component aims are recorded as complete in the usual way.
