LRS: personal learning record

A personal learning record offers access to the verified participation and achievement records of individual learners aged 14+.


The personal learning record (PLR) allows individual learners access to their past and current achievement records. These can be shared with schools, colleges, further education training providers, universities or employers when making an application to further their education, training and employment.

It can also allow an individual learner to share their PLR with a careers advisor when taking advice on what to do in future.

Schools, colleges, further education training providers and universities staff can use the PLR to directly access records for individuals making applications or studying at their organisations.

Registration details can be found on LRS: registration documents.
