Notes

Codes 6 - 8 can be used only by institutions in England.

For learners at institutions in England, this field should be completed for employed learners who are studying learning aims relevant to their employment. This field is optional for all students at institutions in Wales.

Where a learner is employed and released by their employer to study a vocational learning aim which is relevant to their employment, code 6 'The SFA/YPLA learner is employed and released by the employer to study a vocational learning aim relevant to that employment' should be used.

Where a learner is employed and studying a vocational learning aim relevant to that employment and their employer has not released the learner to attend, code 7 'The SFA/YPLA learner is employed and studying a vocational learning aim relevant to that employment. The employer has not released the learner to attend' should be used.

Where a learner is attending dedicated employer provision, code 8 'The SFA/YPLA learner is attending dedicated employer provision' should be used. Dedicated provision refers to learning aims which are delivered for an employer, normally on the employers premises, either by direct or franchised provision.

Code 9 'None of the above' should be used for all 16 -19 year old learners following a programme of 450 or more guided learning hours per year, learners studying learning aims unrelated to their employment and the unemployed.

Where a provider is not aware of the learners employment or is unable to establish a link between the learning aim and the learners employment, code 9 'None of the above' should be used.

Codes 1 - 5 can be used only by institutions in Wales.

This employer role should be as at the beginning of the learning aim. Do not amend this field if the learners employment status changes during the programme.
