FE Workforce Data Collections - Daily Surgery Calls



*2023 calls are open*

From Tuesday 15th November until 27th January, when the FE Workforce Staff, Vacancy and Governor data collections close, providers can join a daily call to raise queries and get questions answered to help with completion of their 21/22 data returns.


The call will open at 10:30am daily for 30 minutes. Note that providers may need to wait in the lobby to be admitted to the call to enable the calls to be conducted one on one, we will be using breakout rooms to do this.

Good afternoon

Please would you advise why the salaries column is showing 'errors' on the Desktop Application for the FE Workforce Data Collection.

I have inputted all the information for the FE Workforce Data Collection into the template and have copied and pasted the data into the ‘Desktop Application’ as advised. 

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Kind regards.

Any idea how long does it take to be able to log in to the online PDSAT after registration ?

Good morning Fouz Graham,

 Please see link below regarding PDSAT:

ESFA Update further education: 4 January 2023 - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)

I would also like to note, this thread is regarding the FE Workforce Data collection not PDSAT. There are already a few PDSAT threads open for discussion. 

Have a great day!

Thank you,




Karen, Did you get a response to your question?
