Funding rules monitoring reports on the hub

We have made the following improvements to the funding monitoring reports on the Hub:

  • the ‘funding line type’ summary has been reinstated

  • a new ‘total investigated aims’ figure replaces ‘total submitted aims’ – this will make the proportion of errors more accurate

  • we have included advanced learner loans funding paid by the Student Loans Company all relevant reports

  • we have included advanced learner loans data in reports 5, 6 and 7

  • we have removed level 4 qualifications from report 28, the report now only identifies advanced learner loans for level 3 qualifications
