Recording 16-19 study programmes

Completing the ILR: recording 16-19 study programmes

16-19 funded study programmes are recorded on the ILR using Funding model code 25. A programme aim record (Aim type = 1) is not required for these study programme unless the learner is doing a traineeship programme.

A study programme may be one of the following:

  • Vocational programme : this could be a mixture of vocational qualifications and non-qualification activity (potentially, but not exclusively, work experience)

  • Academic programme : these could be a mixture of academic qualifications and non-qualification activity (this could include work experience)

  • Mixed programmes : these programmes consist of both vocational and academic qualification, possibly also including non-qualification activity (which could include work experience). Mixed programmes must still identify either an academic or vocational core aim depending on the focus of the programme: see the funding guidance for young people about core aims in study programmes for further information.

From September 2013, General Further Education (GFE) and Sixth Form colleges have been able to admit full-time 14 and 15 year olds and alternative provision census home educated 14 and 15 year olds with the costs being met by the ESFA. These students should be recorded with a Learning delivery monitoring code of LDM320 (14-16 Direct Funded Students in FE) or LDM321 (14-16 Home Educated Students) in the Learning Delivery FAM fields.
