You will need to set certain fields in the learner’s Employment Status to record a Skills Bootcamp. If a bootcamp is Co-Funded (where the Full Funding Indicator is set to 2), Small/medium employers (with under 250 employees) will contribute 10% in a co-funding arrangement, whereas large employers will contribute 30%.
If you are working with a small/medium employer, you must choose 02: Small or Medium Employer in the OET (Other Employment Type) field in the Edit Employment Status window. If the employer is large, leave this field blank.
The SEM (Small Employer) field does not affect funding for Skills Bootcamps and should not be used.
Any learner on a Skills Bootcamp will need the following types of ILR Learning Aim added to their record:
A programme aim will need to be added to represent the entire programme. You need to record the following details for the aim:
Dates covering the full duration of the programme in the Start and End tab
The programme aim must be recorded as continuing (Completion Status = 1) in the Start and End tab until all learning aims have been completed, or the learner withdraws from the programme, or takes a break in learning.
A component aim will need to be added to represent the outcome of the bootcamp. Use one of the following aim references if the event occurs and is related to the learning from the bootcamp:
Z0059747 – Offer of an interview for a role which matches skills acquired during a bootcamp
Z0059748 – Offer of a new role or added responsibilities, which match skills acquired during the bootcamp, with existing employer
Z0059749 – Receipt of plan from learner of how the bootcamp learning will be applied to acquire new self-employment opportunities/contracts
You need to record the following details for the aim:
Record the same date in the Learning Start Date, Learning Planned End Date and Learning Actual End Date fields in the Start and End tab when recording the event aim. For example, if the event is the offer of an interview, the date to be recorded is the date when the formal offer of an interview was made, not the date of the interview itself.
These aims should only be recorded as Completed (Completion Status = 2) and Achieved (Outcome = 1) in the Start and End tab, and with all three date fields completed.
These 3 aims should never be recorded as continuing.
Once an interview offer has been made within the criteria specified in the funding and performance management rules, the Z0059747 aim should be recorded whether or not the actual interview takes place.

All learning aims will need the following details recorded:
