Notes

  • The Learning delivery monitoring document contains all of the valid codes available for this field, but is not teaching year specific. The 'Valid from' column should be used to determine whether the code is valid for use.

  • The document will be available and published on the 'Appendices, validation rules and schema' page to the ILR Specification for the current year.

  • Unassigned codes will fail validation and must not be used until they have been authorised for use and have been published.

  • The ESFA directorate responsible for running the project or pilot will inform providers involved of the code that should be used.

  • All learning aims delivered through funding models 81 and 82 should be identified using a Learning Delivery Monitoring code. Providers will be informed of which code to use. This does not apply to apprenticeship standards.
