What to include on the ILR

What to include on the ILR

You must include on the ILR all learners who have attended one episode of learning.
Aims that are completed or withdrawn during the current ILR year (Completion status = 2 or 3 and Learning actual end date is on or after 1 August 2020 and before 1 August 2021).
If a learner withdraws without completing one episode of learning – for example, without attending the first class – then they must not be included on the ILR.
Your ILR returns must include all aims that meet the criteria below, and any aims for the previous year that have since been corrected.
Any aims reported as continuing in the final return (R14) for the previous year that are not reported in the current year will be treated as withdrawn in the qualification achievement rates (QARs).
Details about migrating data from between years can be found in Appendix B of the ILR specification, including details about changes that may affect learners continuing from the previous year and those learners on a break in learning.
Migration is the process by which ILR data is converted from one academic year to the next.

Aims that are part of a traineeship or apprenticeship programme

The current ILR must also include the following that are part of a traineeship or apprenticeship programme:
  • Programmes where the programme aim is completed (Aim type = 1, Completion status = 2 and Learning actual end date is completed) and the learner is continuing with an English or maths aim

Completing the final return for the current year

The final ILR return for the current year allows you to send details of the outcomes of learning aims that were completed up to and including 31 July.
Your final ILR return must include all Learner, Learning Delivery and Learner Destination and Progression data that has been returned during the year, including all records as described above and any records that have been amended during the year (for example, to correct data errors).
Achievement funding and Job outcome funding for learning aims funded through the Adult skills funding model that are completed in the current year will only be paid if the achievement is reported in the current year.
The following should not be returned in the final ILR return for the current year, but should be returned in the following year:
  • Learning aims that start after 31 July 2021
  • Actual end dates after 31 July 2021
  • Achievement dates after 31 July 2021
