This article will guide you through using the Learning Records Service (LRS) during the enrolment of OST learners with Bud. You are now able to search for applicants to find their Unique Learner Number (ULN), and to return their Personal Learning Record and previous qualifications. Where there is no ULN, you can create one by registering the applicant during enrolment. You do not have to find or create the ULN for each applicant, but doing so now means that the ULN will be attached to the applicant's Learning Plan.
