Learners retain the same unique learner number (ULN) for accessing their personal learning record (PLR) throughout their lives whatever level of learning they attain and wherever they choose to undertake education, training and learning.
Each unique learner number (ULN) is issued and held by the Learning Records Service. They are for people who use the numbers to index learner identity details as well as education and training qualifications within the PLR.
There are two ways to access this information. Please use the link relevant to your organisation:
You can find your ULN on award certificates or results slips. If you cannot find it ask your current or previous learning provider to collect it from the LRS organisation portal or to create a ULN for you.
2. Important Information
From the 8 March 2018, there is a new URL address to access the LRS Organisation Portal.
For most organisations this will have no impact, but if your organisation currently has a whitelist of accepted and approved URL’s you will need to take action to replace the old address by this date, otherwise users within your organisation won’t be able to access the portal.
Note: This change doesn’t impact, organisations using web service operations (MI system is integrated with the LRS), S2S (England), C2K (Northern Ireland) and DEWi (Wales).
Check with your IT support team, if the change impacts your organisation. The following two URL addresses will need to be whitelisted:
If, your organisation doesn’t need to whitelist the addresses; replace, save and start to use the new URL for the portal, from the 8 March 2018
Decommission Old URL
The current URL will work in parallel until the 27 March 2018. After the 27 March, this URL will stop working.
