Details

New for 16 July 2020

We’ve updated the ILR returns guide for 2019 to 2020 for 2 reasons:

  1. to update the following sections; main guide paragraph 29, 31, 33, 48, Annex C paragraph 3 and table 2c. These updates reflect the previously communicated advice on how we’re moderating clawback to take into account recruitment difficulties as a result of coronavirus.
  2. to include a new annex E to help institutions to reduce possible funding and/or funding audit data errors

For information

Colleges, providers, schools and academies receive annual funding allocations from the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) for provision of 16 to 19 education.

These documents give advice about individualised learner record (ILR) returns for institutions funded by the ESFA. It is important for all institutions that we fund to carry out data recording checks each year.

You will also find our published funding guidance books useful.

Funding claims

All ILR funded institutions must submit funding claims by the deadline.
