This training session is intended for people brand new to ILR or those with beginner level experience. If you have more experience, or would like to just ask a quick question, keep an eye out for our upcoming training for more advanced users, and also our brand new drop-in sessions.

Data, management information, quality indicators and the ILR – getting it right first time

Are you tired of wading through ESFA and DfE funding and policy guidance, the ILR specification, QAR business rules and data, checking for errors and ploughing through spreadsheets?

Do you sometimes find discrepancies in the data that you believe to be correct and that held by ESFA or Ofsted?

Do you struggle with questions of coding on the ILR, or whether your MIS system is working for you?

Whether you are new to the ILR or very experienced with inputting and analysing ILR data, this workshop is a chance to explore common mistakes, ask questions of colleagues and learn some top tips from our data specialists. We will work through frequently asked questions regarding ILR returns, with a particular look at recording learning aims to ensure your QAR data is reported accurately.
