FRM01 - Learners repeating a learning aim they have already achieved

Last updated

From: Education and Skills Funding Agency


The FRM01 data report is displayed in the post-16 funding monitoring reports dashboard. Please see the following link Financial assurance: monitoring post-16 funding for further guidance on all FRM reports, accessing and using the dashboard 


The FRM01 can trigger when a learner’s unique learner number (ULN) has been identified as already achieving against the same qualification with yourselves or your reported subcontractor. 


You must not knowingly continue to claim funding that is ineligible, breach data quality rules or claim funding where certificates have been lost.  

Do not continue to record aims on a learner’s existing funding model with a ‘Funding adjustment for prior learning’ or ‘Other funding adjustment’ of 0 unless you have been specifically instructed to do so by us.

Possible FRM01 Resolution

Consider removing any repeated learning aims from your learner’s data.

We will recover the funding overclaim for any remaining learners with FRM01 at year end.
