Reviewing the following areas is extremely useful in the case of a completion element not being paid for a learner recorded in the ILR (in a current funding qualifying period).
· Check co-investment report, is co-investment outstanding? Collect and record in data as PMR 1
· Has the achievement date been recorded for standards?
· Has the ‘to’ date been recorded in funding and monitoring tab (FAM)?
· Is the learner above the funding band maximum?
No one has replied to this post.
Be easier if the second point WAS A VALIDATION ERROR as I've been promised on several occasions...
Literally can't have a ProgType 25 AimType 1 where CompStat = 2 and AchDate is blank. I know there's a PDSAT report, but let's try and make things obvious for people here...

I have a completion payment that has, again, been withheld and none of the above apply? Does the learner destination and progression also require full completion at this stage to enable release of the completion payment?

It just has to exist so the learner doesn't error, can be "not known". Otherwise D&P does not affect the completion payment.

Thank you Steveh. Back to the drawing board .......

Has the learner been on a Break In Learning? It does seem to get a bit confused with PMRs when they have...

Hi Steveh, No not that either? Just a POT1. Co-inv has been fully received and recorded, achievement date recorded (standard) date "applies to" on ACT recorded the same, not over funding band max......

ah, just a thought Steveh ? ! The employer incorrectly stopped them on the DAS rather than allowing them to naturally complete and therefore had to reopen a new cohort for them. The end date for the original cohort was incorrectly processed as Aug 21 and the start date for the new cohort is also Aug 21, so both in current funding year. Would I need to add a TNP4 with a date of 1/8/21 to capture the completion payment?

(and this is why ESFA should be paying their level 2 support advisors more than £30k a year, because this aint going to be easy to sort out...)
13 April 2022 10:46
Oh, I bet it is that, but I'm really not sure how to sort it out... Doubt TNP4 is the answer though...

Back to the helpdesk I go...thank you though Steveh, always appreciate your help and guidance

Steveh Hi FYI, the TNP4 did clear it and we have now received the outstanding achievement payment :) Happy Monday!
