We have worked with Distance Learning providers before and we withdrew learners based on online learner activity.
My advice would be if you can evidence that some form of learning took place when they accessed their VLE then you can use that date.
Auditors will just want to know about the controls you have in place for your VLE software.
Thanks for your reply :)
What if the VLE report literally just says
Date/Time; Number of logins 6 / Number of clicks 30?
Under university regulations / HESA, this is acceptable evidence of 'engagement' and should be used for the degree withdrawal date. I am not convinced this is acceptable to ESFA regulations...
Martin West could you offer any words of wisdom?
I would agree with Kelly what this is all about evidencing that learning has taken place but as the Apprentice has refused to update the OTJ training log to reflect when the VLE was accessed in JAN and Feb then you should revert to the last taught session in Dec for the Last date in learning as this is the last date that can be evidenced.
Last day of learning
Question about withdrawals and BIL vs. Last Day of Learning (LDoL).
When processing a WD or BIL, the LDoL must be used as the withdrawal date. Does that LDoL need to be recorded on the OTJ log to remain compliant?
Hypothetical example of problem;
Can the VLE login's alone be used as the LDoE? Or should it be the last classroom session where we can evidence what KSBs we're taught? Or should it be the last OTJ entry?
