For programme aims (Instance.AIMTYPE = 1), the outcome of the entire programme must be recorded in this field.

Code 2 'Partial achievement' should only be used for prescribed HE learning aims where the learner has achieved an award that is at a lower academic level than the qualification they were aiming for as identified by the learning aim reference. For example, a learner who is aiming for an HND but leaves at the end of the first year with an HNC.

For all other learning aims this field should be used to record the learning outcome of the learning aim.

If the outcome was unknown (code 8) at R14 of 2015 to 2016, then these learning aim records should continue to be returned in 2016 to 2017 so that the outcome and destination can be updated.

Further guidance on recording completion can be found in the Provider support manual.
