And you'd record the ECF/MCF as 3 - Learner has met the GCSE condition of funding as they hold an approved equivalent UK qualification. Don't enter the grade as if it were a GCSE.

I think if they started in the current year, you can just correct it. I'm sure we've done that several times. If you've already had some funding, it can make the amounts in the reports look a littl...

Definitely not. We deliver just for co-funding and no student contribution for all sorts of reasons. Plus, we don't record in the ILR what the student contribution was, so how would they know?

Simon Molineaux-Inglis I honestly just build it every year. I start with pulling the TQT or GLH from the LARS data. Do some VLOOKUPs against the enrolment records I've export into Excel. Work out t...

Yes, they only do it after the R14 of the year after the overclaim, so it can be over claim from up to two whole years earlier. I don't know where it appears in reports, but we've just had clawback...
