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.
