If we don't know/cant get from EDRS the Employer ID for the ILR, I thought you could add 999999999 in the interim.
Have tried this and getting "The Employer identifier is not valid".
Any ideas ?
No one has replied to this post.
We can use the temp number 999999999 for a period of around 3 months only and then a official EDRS number needs to be inputted :)
Hope this helps

The time period to allow the temporary number to be used for this learner entry has now passed, as their SD in the spreadsheet states 26/07/2021. You now need to obtain the correct ERN number relating to the employer and replace the temporary number.
