Submit Learner Data (SLD) service has now moved to DfE Sign-in


You must now use DfE Sign-in to access SLD and you can no longer use IDAMs to sign into the service.

SLD users have been sent instructions on how to use DfE Sign-in to access the service. We recommend checking to ensure your access is working correctly.

If you’re not able to log in to SLD you can contact us using the DfE Sign-in help form.

See more information on our DfE Sign-in page

Interestingly, despite suggestions that SLD would be automatically added to my DfE Sign In, I had to use "Add services to my account" to get it to appear. Was only a ten second job (I presume because I'm an Approver), but colleagues should be aware that it might not just be there when you log in.

Apologies for delay in responding. A small number of DfE Sign-in accounts failed to receive the SLD service update. This has now been resolved.

Yes, I got two copies of the same email on Friday telling me!
