For the remaining 2017/18 returns R12, R13 and R14 the 2017/18 ILR Spec applies, from R01 2018/19 the 2018/19 ILR Spec applies even though you will be returning this at the same time as R13 for 2017/18.
There should have been a better explanation to this but that’s the best I can do.
Thanks Martin. Does that mean all learners regardless of when they start would be returned for both submissions during a crossover essentially meaning the ILR submissions are the same given the exception of the different ILR specification rules?
A learner that starts in January would be included in R12, R13 and R14, as well as R01, R02, R03? As would a learner starting in July.
Or is it the case that a learner who finished learning in say February would be reported up until R14 with a status of completed but they would not be included in the R01?
A learner who started in January would be included in R12, R13 and R14 and where still current at R12 would be migrated to 2018/19 and included in R01 on, any learner with a completion status of completed at R12 would still be included in R13 and R14 but would not be migrated to 2018/19.
It is worth considering the ILR collections timetable
17/18 R12 06/08/2018
18/19 R01 06/09/2018
17/18 R13 14/09/2018
18/19 R02 04/10/2018
17/18 R14 18/10/2018
A learner recorded as continuing from R12 17/18 would be migrated and included in the R01 18/19 ILR.
The 17/18 R12 data is not expected to change in R13/R14 except for updating for outcomes and late changes during this period, these changes will also have to be copied and replicated in the 18/19 migrated ILR data.
