Q&A on Submit Learner Data and FIS – 21 to 27 August

This week, we’re hosting a Q&A thread on the Submit Learner Data service and the upcoming Funding Information System (FIS) release for 2019 to 2020.

It’s your opportunity to put forward any questions you have and give us feedback on your experience, so we can make improvements.

The team is on hand to answer questions about:

  • how to use the new service
  • availability of reports
  • how to use FIS
  • changes to FIS from 2018 to 2019

The Q&A will run from today (the day before R01 opens) until Tuesday 27 August. So, get an early submission in the bank so you can fire any questions you may have at us!

Follow the thread on the FE Connect forum.

We look forward to hearing from you.

    Has anyone had this message when submitting on the new system?

    “The year in the filename should match the current year”

    Hi
    What has happened to the Rules Violation report from the FIS? Despite never understanding the codes and errors it was really useful.

    Do we just get an excel spreadsheet now?

    Many thanks
    Jill

    I am getting R30 and R66 errors for Apprentices carried forward from 1819 to 1920.

    The records in 1819 and 1920 are identical, is this something the FIS 1920 isn’t picking up ?

    These errors are not occurring in the 1819 returns

    We’ll check these validation rules to understand if they’re triggering incorrectly. It would be really helpful if we could check the data that has triggered these rules, please could you validate a file online (Submit Learner Data) and contact the service desk to let us have the details. Thanks

    Hi,
    just managed to do an upload for P1 on submit learner data. Getting a few new errors that I’ve never seen before.

    1. There is no Adult skills funding relationship for this UKPRN
    This is happening for starts in 19/20 on both ESFA and CA-funded contracts.
    Also getting it for some learners who started last year, for whom we don’t get errors in the P13 upload.
    I only signed out 19/20 AEB contract this morning, so could this be the issue?

    2. There is no apprenticeship funding relationship for this UKPRN
    I’ve not got any new contract to sign, so am unsure why this errors (but again doesn’t for P13 upload).
