Get a Better Understanding of your ILR Data


You can now keep track of your ILR and funding data using a new understand your funding tile in Submit Learner Data (SLD). The understand your funding dashboard displays your data in one place right up to your latest submissions. You can see totals for the current period or year to date as well as breakdowns by funding models and student numbers. 

There is a survey on the dashboard to help up develop the information around your needs. Please give us your feedback and let us know about any improvements or additions you'd like to see.

Will data show after the next submission as there's nothing  to see currently?

Hi Louise,

You should already have data available in Understand Your Funding as long as you have made an ILR return, we are aware it can sometimes take a few seconds for the page to populate so we are looking at performance improvements in this space. If you are still not seeing any data please can you raise a query with the service desk, including your UKPRN, and we will look into this further for you.

Hi Team,

Is there any guidance to explain the methodology behind the forecasting feature? For example, is this based on all valid learners completing at their planned end dates?

Thank you,

Steve Middleton

Hi. This sounds like a great idea, but I'm not seeing anything on the pages as yet. Is there an issue with it..?

Many thanks

We did experience some issues with dashboards yesterday. This has now been resolved and you should be able to see the reports now.

We are not currently displaying 16-19 funding in the dashboard as the numbers distort the graphs. This is planned for a future release and we are currenlty conducting user research on how best to display this information.

Is this working as  intended at the moment?  For our records it's showing the right number of apprentices and learning aims, but a Jan earning of £158,603 when  the Funding Summary report shows £79,770.68.

Hi Martin,

Thank you for your feedback, we have investigated this and have identified a bug in the dashboard which is causing apprenticeship funding to display incorrectly. We have prepared a fix for this and expect it to be released early this week. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused by this.
