Notes

  • Providers should ensure that the Completion status is updated for learners throughout the year.

  • Failure to update the Completion status may negatively impact on student reporting in retention measures in 16 to 18 performance tables (i.e. a completed aim incorrectly recorded as either Code 1 ‘continuing’ or Code 3 ‘withdrawn’).

  • For apprenticeship standards, the learning activities for the programme aim include both the training and end point assessment. Code 2 must only be used for the apprenticeship standard programme aim where both the training and end point assessment activities have been completed.

  • Further information about recording completion and guidance about breaks in learning can be found in the ILR guidance documents.
