return to field list
This entity collects additional monitoring data about the employment status.
All LearnerEmploymentStatus records where LearnerEmploymentStatus.EMPSTAT = 10, 11 or 12.
This entity should be completed to provide additional employment status monitoring data and is collected in association with certain types of employment status as detailed below. Where more than one of the indicators (listed in EmploymentStatusMonitoring.ESMTYPE) applies the entity should be repeated.
EmploymentStatusMonitoring must be collected for all Instance.LearnerEmploymentStatus records, except if LearnerEmploymentStatus.EMPSTAT = 98 'Not known/not provided'.
For EFA funded learners, only the Employment intensity indicator must be completed (EmploymentStatusMonitoring.ESMTYPE = EII). No other employment status monitoring is required for these learners.
The table below details the requirements for each EmploymentStatusMonitoring.ESMTYPE.

This should be completed if applicable for records where Instance.EMPSTAT is recorded as code 10 "In paid employment".
Employment Intensity indicator (EII)
This should be completed on all records dated on or after 1 August 2011 (in LearnerEmploymentStatus.DATEEMPSTATAPP) where Instance.EMPSTAT is recorded as code 10 'In paid employment'. This must be completed for EFA funded learners.
Code 1 'Learner is employed for 16 hours or more per week' is not valid for learners with Employment status records on or after 1 August 2013 (LearnerEmploymentStatus.DATEEMPSTATAPP is after 1 August 2013).
