    I have an apprentice on a degree standard who has withdrawn after completing 70 credits at Level 4.

    As I read the ILR spec, this counts as ‘no achievement’ at both programme and aim level since 70 credits is not enough to qualify for a lower award. (If they had completed 120 credit that would be enough for a CertHE and so would be counted as partial achievement for the learning aim but no achievement for the programme.)

    Is that correct? (I have a vague memory of seeing something that implied that achieving *any* credits > partial, but I have been unable to find anything).

    Code 2 ‘Partial achievement’ should only be used for prescribed HE learning aims where the learner has achieved an award that is at a lower academic level than the qualification they were aiming for as identified by the learning aim reference. For example, a learner who is aiming for an HND but leaves at the end of the first year with an HNC.

    It would depend if the student is being awarded anything. From 70 credits at level 4 they *could* have an award of “credits at level C”. But are you actually awarding them that?

    Thanks both.

    No, there’s no formal award.

    I have however kept a record of the completed modules because if at some stage in the future they were to restart on this standard then the new provider would need to take account of progress made previously.

    Hello,

    Can anyone advise if we can record learning aims as partial achievements if the learner has achieved some modules but not all. 16-19

    Thank you

    Thank you Martin – so we cannot use code 2 Partial achievement in FE at all?

    The full definition is:
    Code 2 ‘Partial achievement’ should only be used for prescribed HE learning aims where the learner has achieved an award that is at a lower academic level than the qualification they were aiming for as identified by the learning aim reference. For example, a learner who is aiming for an HND but leaves at the end of the first year with an HNC.

    One thing I’d add that came up with the recent change about allowing previous withdrawers to restart down the line- the first provider should make a record of their progress (credits and KSBs) up to point of withdrawal, so that if/when they restart it is clear how much is left to do.

    Hi there
    Okay, I understand its about prescribed HE provision.
    How do we code when an apprentice who has completed all the learning and is ready for the gateway – they either fail EPA or choose not to sit it. Therefore they have completed and not achieved = 2.3 or 3.3?

    Hi Jenny,
    If they fail EPA it is CompStatus 2 Outcome 3 No achievement
    If they chose not to do the EPA it is a withdrawal CompStatus 3 Outcome 3 No achievement
