I’ve just received the document “NAS-AccesstoApprenticeships-ILRreportingtechnicaldocument-29July2011.pdf” – it’s guidance from the NAS explaining how to record an Access to Apprenticeship learner on the ILR….
The first line states that the Programme Type field will be recorded as code 1 ‘Intermediate Level Apprenticeship’ or code 2 for Advanced….
Surely Intermediate is still a code 3 – or have I missed something?
If they really are going to change things then how about Intermediate (what we all know as Level 2 Apprenticeships) becomes a code 2 and Advanced (what we all know to mean Level 3 Apprenticeships) becomes a code 3.
Unless I’ve really misunderstood everything an Intermediate Level has always been a code 3 even though Intermediate represents level 2 provision. And Advanced has always been a code 2 even though it represents level 3 provision. i.e. everything has always been completely backward.
I was just wondering/hoping that they might actually fix this.
Sorry was a typo error, should have been 03 for Intermediate and 02 for Advanced.
Same thoughts as you why this is completely backward and not aligned to the level I have never understood.
