ILR & data management for apprenticeships – February

February 22 @ 2:00 pm February 29 @ 4:00 pm

Getting your ILR and data management right is incredibly important for any apprenticeship provider. Understanding the data requirements, errors and risks will help you avoid underclaiming or overclaiming funding.
That’s why, we host these in-depth webinar series, to coincide with the new funding rules and new funding years. If you’re involved in compliance data management and ILR administration, this series is for you! As well as understanding the fundamentals of data management for apprenticeships, you’ll come away with a clear understanding of how to review your data, mitigate risks and implement best practices.

Here’s what we’ll cover in each 2-hour session.

Session 1 – ILR Fundamentals

  • What are the ILR recording expectations, the core fields and data needed across the phases of the apprenticeship journey?
  • What are the common errors and how can you design processes to mitigate these?
  • What does this mean for the phases of the apprentice journey? I.e. Pre-entry, entry/sign up, delivery and progression, including your pricing and dealing with changes in circumstance?

Session 2 – Managing your data and introduction to PDSAT

  • What are the core data reports you can use to manage your compliance risks, including those produced by PDSAT software?
  • What are the sources of data and the key monthly processes needed to meet ESFA requirements?

Session 3 – Using the Provider Data Self-Assessment Toolkit (PDSAT)

  • The core challenges of each report and the actions you should take.
  • How you can use annotations and other information you’ll want to draw on to be effective.
David Lockhart-Hawkins, SDN’s compliance expert will facilitate this series. David has experience of working with hundreds of high performing apprenticeship organisations over the last twenty years, including some of the UK’s largest, highest quality, specialist and new providers.
These sessions are designed for all those involved in compliance data management and ILR administration.
“David’s knowledge and expertise is unparalleled.”
