Funding guidance for young people: ILR funding returns

Advice about individualised learner record (ILR) funding returns for institutions funded by the ESFA.

Documents

Details

Colleges, providers, schools and academies receive annual funding allocations from the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) for provision of 16 to 19 education.

These documents give advice about individualised learner record (ILR) returns for institutions funded by the ESFA. It is important for all institutions that we fund to carry out data recording checks each year.

You will also find our published funding guidance books useful.

How to return your final funding claim

In academic year 2017 to 2018, we merged the 16 to 19 final claim with the adult funding claim process.

All ILR funded institutions must submit a final claim by the deadline.
