In-depth webinar series: ILR and Data Management for Apprenticeships (2022-23)

September 6 @ 10:00 am - September 13 @ 12:00 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, led by David Lockhart-Hawkins, we’re hosting a brand-new in-depth webinar series in September, to coincide with the new funding rules and new funding year.

If you are involved in compliance data management and ILR administration, this series is for you!

As well as understanding the fundamentals of data management for apprenticeships in 2022-23, 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 (Tuesday 6 September, 10am-12pm)

  • 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 (Thursday 8 September, 10am-12pm)

  • 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) (Tuesday 13 September, 10am-12pm)

In this session, we’ll walk you through the core challenges of each report and the actions you should take. We’ll also look at how you can use annotations and other information you’ll want to draw on to be effective.

You can book onto the webinar series for £225 (+VAT). This includes the live webinars (with Q&A), the webinar recordings, and supporting tools / resources.

If you have several staff who would benefit, contact us below and we can let you know the most cost-effective way of you accessing the support.

Who is this for?
