For 2020 to 2021 we are introducing our new online ILR product which can be accessed from the following location:
This new site will contain all ILR related material going forward and link back to previous years publications. The ILR specification is the first document to be implemented as online content, all other ILR material where applicable will gradually follow suit throughout the year.
We will be publishing an ‘Introduction to the new ILR’ on the above link in due course which will cover the offline functionality and further information on how to use the site to its fullest potential.
The ILR summary of changes will give a complete detailed view of the changes implemented for 2020 to 2021. A brief overview of the changes is below:
The ILR specification states that there should be one learner record for each learner, this has now been changed there must be one learner record for each learner. This will be enforced in validation for 2020 to 2021.
A new field has been added to collect Actual Hours for Off the Job Training at the end of the programme.
Two new programme types have been added to identify T-Level and T-Level transition programmes. T-Level planned hours will also be collected in the existing Planned Hours field.
The number of Devolved Area Monitoring codes has been increased from 4 to 6.
The Agreement Identifier field has been removed.
A number of redundant Funding and monitoring types and codes have been removed (details in the ILR summary of changes).
Please use the feedback link on the site to help us improve the functionality. On the introduction page, we will be posting our functionality backlog and will edit it as we progress through it.

Why has “a new field has been added to collect Actual Hours for Off the Job Training at the end of the programme” when you consulted the sector who unanimously rubbished the idea? Please see: http://feconnect.education.gov.uk/forums/topic/consultation-on-possible-2020-21-ilr-change-off-the-job-training-actual-hours/ – why was this consultation run if it was to be completely ignored?February 5, 2020 at 10:46 pm #426105
It completely undermines the consultation. If they had to go against all of the sector’s views then at least explain why and acknowledge our input.

Where the above says “The ILR specification states that there should be one learner record for each learner, this has now been changed there must be one learner record for each learner. This will be enforced in validation for 2020 to 2021.” Does this mean that each learner can only have one learner reference number? The spec on the link attached still says should:
•A single learner reference number should be used for each learner wherever possible and providers should work towards eliminating the use of more than one learner reference number for the same person
Can you confirm whether the change applies to the learner reference number and that the validiation that is being changed from a warning to an error is Rule Name R59.
We have different MI systems for different programmes and so have a lot of learners in our amalgamated file who have different serial numbers.
