Indicator for ILR file generation
return to field list
This field records whether the submission is intended to be used to generate a file to be submitted to the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA)'s Individualised Learner Record (ILR).
Providers in England.
|Valid entries and labels
A file compliant with the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA)'s ILR will be generated for download by providers if this field is present and coded '1'. This is a service for providers with Apprenticeship Standards students, as these students must be submitted to the ESFA to attract funding. This service is a data processing service only provided where the terms set out here have been accepted.
The presence of this entry in the data allows validation and field coverages to be based upon it. It is therefore recommended that providers using the HESA system to produce their ILR files retain ILRGEN=1 for the main HESA Student return, so the same field requirements and subsequent validation rules will apply. This will ensure providers can complete the ILR and HESA Student return using the same record structure for Apprenticeship students.
Quality rules relating to this field are displayed here.
