Looking at our latest data quality report, and have seen the FRM06 continuance error appear for several learners. I have looked into it and functional skills learning aims that started in a previous funding year have been removed as should not have been on. So i can see why the FRM06 error has occurred. Is there a fix to this, should we be doing something different or just have to accept the error? Thanks.

We have had this problem, I was advised to leave the FS aims there and withdraw from start date.

Chloe thanks for this. When learning aims are only one day however, it pulls through on the PDSAT reports (and we were told to switch learners off the ILR in this scenario - this was for the programme aims and functional skills wasn't mentioned though), so there doesn't seem to be any way to completely clear it. Also, how do you anticipate any clawbacks with this scenario of aims/funds being changed in a previous funding year, would you do an EAS or will it be clawed back by ESFA at R14 reconciliation?

We annotate on the PDSAT reports why they have been withdrawn on day one - due to admin error/shouldn't have been open at R14 etc. I'm not sure you can avoid them appearing on there but we use the PDSAT to explain why we have done something, rather than 'this is wrong we must clear it' (unless it is clearly a mistake). Anything you've been paid in this contract year should be clawed back when you upload for R13. We use the EAS to pay back payments that fall into previous years but I think you have to have written approval from the ESFA first.
