PLR/LRS "Award Date" Missing

Created

Morning all,

Can I use a learners PLR as evidence for FS English if the Grade = "PA Pass", Outcome = "Achieved" but the "Award Date" is missing ?

The learner doesn't have a copy of the certificate, but the provider and awarding body are detailed on the PLR.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Any data in the PLR that came from ILR data (or NPD I guess) rather than the awarding body, won't have an award date. As long as the grade is a pass, and/or the Outcome is Achieved, you can accept it.

The complication comes when the ILR data was entered by a provider who chooses not to enter a grade for qualifications that are a straight pass/fail, as the grade is not technically required as you indicate the pass/fail using the Outcome field. So you do need to also check Outcome, as a blank grade could also be a pass.
