Attendees will receive the recording and materials.

The provider Data Self-Assessment Toolkit is free software supplied by the Education and Skills Funding Agency, and interrogates 2019/20 data exported from the Funding Information System (FIS) and produces reports on this data, so that providers and auditors can identify and investigate potential anomalies in Individualised Learner Record (ILR) data.
