HESA Student Record 2012/13
Learning Planned end date
return to field list
This field indicates the date by which the provider and learner plan to complete the learning related to this learning aim.
The planned end date must remain the same between academic years as it is used by the success rates to match data from one year to the next.
It is sufficient for the date held in this field to be accurate to within a week, providing that any approximation does not result in a learner being wrongly included or excluded in the funding calculations.
If a learner continues their study beyond the date planned at the start of the learning aim, this should be reflected in the learning actual end date field (Instance.ENDDATE) and the learning planned end date must remain unchanged.
It is important that this date is set realistically based on historic performance, published average lengths of stay and a thorough assessment of the learner at initial assessment. For more funding guidance, please visit theSkills Funding Agency website or the EFA website.
From 2012/13, EFA will be replacing YPLA. More information about EFA replacing YPLA can be found on the Department for Education website.
All date fields in the Student Record must be completed using the ISO8601 format of YYYY-MM-DD. The specification of this field falls within the scope of the Aligned Data Definitions and follows the Data Standards in the HESA student record.
