Student record 2015/16
return to field list
This field indicates the learner’s employment status.
|Coverage||All LearnerEmploymentStatus records that are returned.|
|Valid entries and labels|
An Employment Status record must be returned for Education Funding Agency (EFA) funded learners on part time programmes of study (where the learner’s total Planned hours is less than 540 hours in the teaching year). This data will need to be completed for continuing part time learners from 2012/13 to record their employment status at the start of 2013/14.
If code 10 ‘In paid employment’ or code 11 ‘Not in paid employment and looking for work and available to start work’ is returned, Employment Status Monitoring fields should be returned with the relevant EmploymentStatusMonitoring.ESMTYPE.Employment status definitions:
Code 10 'In paid employment': Learners who have been in paid work prior to starting the learning aim or programme or who are temporarily away from a job (for example, on holiday). Also counted as in paid employment are people on government-supported training schemes and people who do unpaid work for their family’s business.
Code 11 'Not in paid employment and looking for work and available to start work': Learners who have not been in paid work prior to starting the learning aim or programme, who are without a job, want a job, have actively sought work in the last 4 weeks and are available to start work in the next 2 weeks, or have found a job and are waiting to start it.
Please view The Individualised Learner Record (ILR) specification for more details.
