Notes

  • Providers should ensure that a learner's contact preferences are collected at enrolment and recorded accurately using the correct codes.

  • A Contact preference type and code of RUI3, RUI4 or RUI5 should be used by the provider if it needs to update the original learner preferences recorded in order to prevent contact with the learner for the reasons given. These codes are used to overwrite the data originally captured from the learner at enrolment.

  • If a contact preference type and code of RUI3, RUI4 or RUI5 are recorded, then no other RUI or PMC codes must be returned.
