Learner Employment Status
return to field list
|Description||This entity collects employment status at different times for different types of learner dependent upon the type of learning provision being undertaken.|
Instances at institutions in England where Instance.FESTUMK = 1, 3 or 4
Which learners and learning aims is employment status data collected for?
LearnerEmploymentStatus.EMPSTAT and LearnerEmploymentStatus.DATEEMPSTATAPP must be completed on all Employment Status records. LearnerEmploymentStatus.DATEEMPSTATAPP indicates the date the employment status was confirmed to apply. It is not necessarily the date on which the employment status changed.
The Employment status monitoring fields required are dependent on what is recorded in LearnerEmploymentStatus.EMPSTAT. Institutions should check to make sure that the correct data has been gathered.
When to collect employment status data from learners
Data about a learner’s employment status prior to enrolment should be collected in all cases when a learner first enrols with a provider.
An Employment Status record should be added for each episode of work experience undertaken during a traineeship. The LearnerEmploymentStatus.EMPID of the employer providing the work placement should be recorded on the Employment Status record. For example, a learner undertaking two periods of work experience during their traineeship with two different employers would have two additional Employment Status records, with the applicable LearnerEmploymentStatus.EMPID recorded on each one. The LearnerEmploymentStatus.DATEEMPSTATAPP of each record should be set of the start date of the work placement.
The Employment status recorded on these additional Employment Status records should continue to reflect the learner’s actual employment status during this time. It should not be recorded as “employed” unless the learner is undertaking part time paid work as defined in LearnerEmploymentStatus.EMPSTAT as well as their traineeship programme.
