2024-25 ILR Specification

As part of our commitment to ensuring the Bud platform is ready for the new funding year in good time, we have started to introduce changes announced in V1 and V2 of the ILR specification document for the 24/25 academic year: https://guidance.submit-learner-data.service.gov.uk/24-25/ilr/overview

Many of the changes we will be making over the next few releases will not be valid until after 01/08/24. Where this is the case, this will be marked with a “Valid from 01/08/24” label. A similar label of “Valid to 31/07/24” will be used in the case of deprecated fields.
