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 programmes 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 qualifications and can include 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 about core aims in study programmes for further information.

General Further Education (GFE) and Sixth Form colleges can 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.
