the information authority and data service
The information authority and Data Service
  • the information authority has responsibility for setting data standards for the further education sector
  • consists of board of sector representatives and secretariat (stakeholder and data standards teams)
  • information authority have responsibility for the definition and specification of the ILR
  • The Data Service became operational in June 2008 and manages the data collection systems.

summary of changes
Summary of Changes
  • Changes to reflect introduction of demand led funding
    • Names of collections
    • Frequencies of collections
    • Which data are requested in which collection
  • Reduced data requirements for 2007-2013 ESF Programme
    • Eight fewer fields requested
  • Three fields from the learning aim data set have been removed
  • Four fields, one in the learner data set and three in the learning aim data set, have been added
  • A new programme aim is introduced into the learning aim data set to simplify collection of data for learners on formal programmes such as Apprenticeships and Diplomas
  • Extensive changes to the HE data set to bring the ILR in line with the HESA Student Record
  • Changes to codes and guidance for 24 fields in the learner data set and 31 fields in the learning aim data set

2

general changes
General Changes
  • Renamed collections:
    • FE ILR collection renamed Learner Responsive (LR) data collection
    • WBL ILR collection renamed Employer Responsive (ER) data collection.
    • ACL ILR collection renamed the Adult Safeguarded Learning (ASL) data collection
  • Collection Date & Frequency Changes:
    • LR collection – providers are requested to make five returns for the year. F01-F05 are all compulsory.
    • ASL ILR will have 5 returns a year like FE in 2007/08
    • closing date for ER and ESF SR ILR returns brought forward to the 4th working day after the end of the month
  • Scope of Collections
    • Entry to Employment (E2E) will need to be returned in the learner responsive ILR collection in line with the LR cycle of returns
    • FE Funded NVQ’s in the workplace from 07/08 need to be moved to the employer responsive ILR collection.

learner responsive collection
Learner Responsive Collection
  • previously the FE collection
  • should include data for all learners funded through the 16-18 learner responsive funding stream (where A10=21) and all learners funded through the adult learner responsive funding stream (where A10=22)
  • Includes:
    • All NVQs delivered to learners aged 16–18, including those delivered in the workplace which will be funded by the 16-18 learner responsive funding stream
    • Note: the preferred route for employed young people following vocational qualifications is an apprenticeship
    • All NVQ provision for adults delivered wholly on provider premises, full and part-time, will be funded by the adult learner responsive funding stream. This includes provision such as day and block release.
    • data about Entry to Employment (E2E) learners who will be funded from the 16-18 learner responsive funding stream in 2008/09 should be returned in the learner responsive data collection
  • FE colleges are additionally asked to include all learners including those that are non-LSC funded
  • F01 to F05 dates as for 2007/08. F02 and F03 are compulsory returns for all providers and all learners

4

entry to employment
Entry to Employment
  • Will be funded from the 16-18 learner responsive funding stream in 2008/09
  • All ILR records for E2E learners must be removed from the WBL ILR return and included in the Learner Responsive ILR return (five times per year)
  • Funding Stream code for E2E learning aims should be changed from A10=40 to A10=21. (Aims coded A10=99 can be left unchanged)
  • ILR record for E2E learners should contain:
    • A programme aim (A09=ZPROG001, A10=21)
    • A main E2E learning aim (A09=XE2E0001, A10=21)
    • Any subsidiary learning aims (A09=LAD reference of learning aim, A10=99)
  • All E2E funding will be calculated from the XE2E0001 main aim
  • Field A50 will be used to claim E2E progression bonuses. These should be recorded against the XE2E0001 main aim.
  • E2E will not use the TPS form in 2008/09
  • POL will not be available for E2E in 2008/09 (POL is only for employer responsive funded provision). Providers will need to make a batch learner responsive ILR return for E2E learners.
  • An ILR form for E2E providers and guidance on completing learner responsive ILR will be on the website in June 2008. See:

www.theia.org.uk/ilr/ilrdocuments/2008_09+Guidance.htm

employer responsive collection
Employer Responsive Collection
  • previously the WBL collection
  • should include data for all learners funded through the employer responsive funding stream (where A10=45 or 46)
  • this is provision that, in 2007/08, is being delivered as Apprenticeships, Train to Gain and national vocational qualifications (NVQs) delivered wholly or partially in the workplace within mainstream further education (FE)
  • For data definition purposes all non-apprenticeship learning delivered under the employer responsive funding model in 2008/09 will be referred to as Train to Gain.
  • Apprenticeships includes:
    • all ages of Apprenticeships, Advanced Apprenticeships, Higher-level Apprenticeships, Apprenticeships for Adults and Apprentices following approved ‘temporary’ frameworks.
    • Programme-led Apprentices (PLAs) who are non-employed learners following a full Apprenticeship framework and who were previously funded through Work-based Learning (WBL) in 2007/08.
    • does not include learners on Programme-led Apprenticeships who were funded through FE following parts of an apprenticeship framework but not the whole in 2007/08 and who will be funded by the respective 16–18 or adult learner-responsive models in 2008/09.

6

apprenticeships
Apprenticeships
  • Will be funded through the employer responsive funding stream (where A10=45 or 46)
  • Must return a programme aim in 2008/09
  • Programme aim has funding stream of A10=45. Records start date, end date and outcome of whole framework.
  • Framework achievement is recorded in fields A35 and A40 on the programme aim.
  • Main learning aim (competency based element such as NVQ or equivalent learning aim) should be coded A10=46
  • 25% of funding for main learning aim will be held back and paid on achievement of the whole framework
  • A portion of framework funding will be attached to the programme aim
  • Subsidiary learning aims (technical certificates, key skills etc) should be coded with A10=45 (or A10=99 if non-LSC funded)

7

train to gain ttg
Train to Gain (TtG)
  • all non-apprenticeship learning delivered under the employer responsive funding model in 2008/09 will be referred to as Train to Gain.
  • includes:
    • All learners funded under the Train to Gain funding stream (where A10=60) in 2007/08 including Train to Gain Level 3 trial learners
    • All NVQ provision at Levels 1 to 4 delivered on employer premises that was funded under FE in 2007/08. This may have been branded Train to Gain ‘type A’; however the defining factor is whether it is delivered to employees either wholly or partially on employer premises. The term ‘delivered’ includes learning, skills training and assessment.
  • Do not return a programme aim in 2008/09. Programme type in A15=99
  • All TtG learning aims are coded as A10=45. Data fields required are the same as those for a main aim under an apprenticeship programme.
  • If the Employer Responsive ILR form is being used – a separate Part 3 should be completed for each TtG learning aim
  • 25% of funding for each TtG learning aim will be held back and paid on achievement of the aim.
  • TtG learners in 2008/09 who are continuing from 2007/08 and who were TtG funded in 2007/08 should be recorded with code 100 in field A46
  • TtG learners in 2008/09 who are continuing from 2007/08 and who were FE funded in 2007/08 should be recorded with code 101 in field A46

recording programmes 1
Recording Programmes (1)
  • Programme aim required for all programmes listed in field A15
    • Apprenticeships, Adv Apprenticeships, Higher Level Apprenticeships, Apprenticeships for Adults (including continuing learners from 07/08)
    • Diplomas
    • Progression Pathways in Foundation Learning Tier
    • Entry to Employment (including continuing learners from 07/08)
  • Key Features
    • A programme aim is a separate learning aim data set
    • Allows accurate & explicit recording of programme start, end and outcome.
    • Uses code 35 in A04 for programme aim to differentiate from component learning aims
    • Not all learning aim fields required. Null value can be used in fields that are not required
    • Use of framework code (field A26) extended beyond just apprenticeship sector frameworks to diploma lines of learning and progression pathways.
    • Use of same A15 & A26 values will link programme aim to component aims in most cases (apart from E2E which does not use field A26)
    • See additional programme aim guidance, which details what is required for each learning aim data field for the programme aim for each type of programme.
