BILS in the ILR

Created

Could someone advise on this - do we continue reporting all episodes of learning across funding years or not? Not sure I follow the guidance?
Provider Support Manual 2021 to 2022How to record changes to the apprenticeship

You must continue to return all aims and financial records for the apprenticeship, including the records prior to the break in learning, until the apprenticeship is completed or the apprentice withdraws from the programme.

You must continue to report an apprentice on a break in learning in your ILR records until either the apprentice returns and restarts their learning, or you report the apprentice as having withdrawn.

Aha, I see what you mean.

I think the second bit should probably read

You must continue to report an apprentice on a break in learning in your ILR records until either the apprentice returns and restarts their learning (when you have to report both the pre and post BIL records), or you report the apprentice as having withdrawn.

I think it's saying, "if you've got a BIL across years, you still need to keep returning it in the next year whilst the learner is still BIL"?

So if you had an apprentice who went on a BIL in 20/21 and then returned, you have to report both the BIL and the continuing enrolments in 21/22 and beyond until they complete/withdraw.

If you have payment records recorded on the 2021 BIL, then they have to be rolled over into 2122 (on the BIL enrolment) as the ILR will not be able to see payments made in previous years otherwise.

Thats what we've found anyway. By not rolling over previous BIL with payment records attached, it prevented the completion payment from being released.
