I see that FIS is showing error’s for all learners with the above Codes! However, when you put your file through the Submit Date web site guess what, no error’s. Come on ESFA the last update to FIS was the 1st June so you should have sorted this out by now.
I decided to upload a new file with the new COVID codes in knowing I still had the old one if necessary to over write it. All currently looks fine in the validation reports on the ‘Submit Learner Data’ as you say. Proof of the pudding will be in next weeks ILR reports I suppose.
