18 Slide No:18 © Learning and Skills Council 2006 Slide No:18 © Learning and Skills Council 2006 This section explains how to: Search for a provider (Ofsted, ALI and LSC users). Upload documents (all users). You can work through the section sequentially, or use the links in the panel to the left to go to specific topics. Note that the procedure for uploading a document is described based on uploading a Self-Assessment Report (SAR). The procedure for uploading CPRs, PPRs, templates and workbooks is the same. What documents do providers upload? How to upload a document Links to topics Can documents be amended in Document Exchange? Hints and Tips, Zip up your files! Section 2 How to upload documents What documents does Ofsted upload? What documents does the ALI upload? How to search for a provider (Provider Search) How to search for a provider (Document Search) Bulk upload of documents Document Versions

19 Slide No:19 © Learning and Skills Council 2006 2 How to upload documents What documents do providers upload? Providers upload their: Self-Assessment Reports (SARs). Academic Calendars. 3 Year Development Plans. FE Stats Update Workbooks. Other Learner Types (OLT) Workbooks. If a SAR consists of more than one file, all of the component files can be uploaded together and Document Exchange will group them together into a single document. Both Draft and Final versions of the SAR can be uploaded. Each draft replaces any previous Draft in Document Exchange.

20 Slide No:20 © Learning and Skills Council 2006 2 How to upload documents What documents does Ofsted upload? Ofsted uploads: College Performance Reports (CPRs). Post-AAV Letters. School Sixth Form PANDAs. FE Stats Update Workbook templates. CPRs and workbook templates will be uploaded by administrative staff in Ofsted. Inspectors will not normally be expected to upload these documents. The CPR for each provider must be uploaded prior to the Annual Assessment Visit (AAV) or an inspection, so that inspectors can access it as part of their preparation for the AAV or inspection.

21 Slide No:21 © Learning and Skills Council 2006 2 How to upload documents What documents does the ALI upload? The ALI uploads: Provider Performance Reports (PPRs). Other Learner Types (OLT) Workbook templates. PPRs and workbook templates will be uploaded by administrative staff in the ALI. Inspectors will not normally be expected to upload these documents. The PPR for each provider must be uploaded prior to the Annual Assessment Visit (AAV) or an inspection, so that inspectors can access it as part of their preparation for the AAV or inspection. Providers use the template to prepare their workbooks, and then upload the workbooks to Document Exchange. ALI inspectors can then download them for analysis.

22 Slide No:22 © Learning and Skills Council 2006 SARs and other document types can be uploaded to Document Exchange either as Draft or as Final status documents. Document Exchange can hold one Draft and one Final status version of a document for a given academic year. If you want to replace one Draft version of a document with another, you must delete the existing Draft and then upload the new Draft. A Final status SAR or other document is the signed version.  A Final status SAR cannot be replaced or deleted by the provider. Document versions 2 How to upload documents

23 Slide No:23 © Learning and Skills Council 2006 Can documents be amended in Document Exchange? You cannot edit the content of any document directly in Document Exchange. When you upload a document you must retain the master files on your own systems. If a provider needs to update the content of a Draft status SAR, the amendments are made on the master copy held by the provider, the existing Draft is deleted from Document Exchange, and the amended Draft uploaded. A Final status SAR cannot be deleted or replaced by the provider. But if a Final status SAR is found to be inaccurate (for example, by an Inspector), the provider can ask through the local LSC for the LSC Business Support Unit to delete the Final version from Document Exchange. The provider could then amend the master copy of the SAR and re-upload it to Document Exchange. 2 How to upload documents

24 Slide No:24 © Learning and Skills Council 2006 How to search for a provider (Provider Search) How to search for a provider Ofsted, ALI and LSC users need to search to locate the provider in Document Exchange before they can upload a document. The Provider Search screen enables Ofsted, ALI and LSC users to search for a provider by UPIN or Provider Name. Provider users do not require the search facility because they are automatically directed to their own provider when they log in. 2 How to upload documents

25 Slide No:25 © Learning and Skills Council 2006 How to search for a provider (Continued) You can search for a provider using either the provider’s name, part of a name (for example, if you enter “col” in the Provider Name field, the search will return all names with “col” in the title. E.g. “College”) or you can search using their UPIN. Enter the UPIN, Provider Name or part Name in the appropriate field. Click on the Search Button. 2 How to upload documents How to search for a provider (Provider Search) (continued)

26 Slide No:26 © Learning and Skills Council 2006 How to search for a provider (continued) Because a partial name was used to search on, all provider names containing “Soli” have been displayed together with their UPIN.

If the files do not appear on the list immediately after processing, click the Refresh button to update the screen. The delete icon which appears against each document allows you to delete the document from Document Exchange. 2 How to upload documents How to upload a document (continued)

39 Slide No:39 © Learning and Skills Council 2006 How to upload a document (continued) As the two documents were uploaded together, they are treated as a set belonging to the same SAR. There are two action buttons that act on all documents in a set together: The Upload icon Documents uploaded using this icon will become part of the set. The Document Status Advance icon advances the status of the set of documents from Draft to Final. 2 How to upload documents How to upload a document (continued)

40 Slide No:40 © Learning and Skills Council 2006 2 How to upload documents Before you change the status of a document from Draft to Final, it is important to be certain that you are ready to do so. To change the status to Final is to sign the SAR! A Final status SAR cannot be deleted by the provider. If a Final status SAR is found to need amendment (for example, by an inspector) the provider would need to ask the local LSC to request the LSC’s Business Support Unit to delete the SAR from Document Exchange. The provider could then amend its master copy and re-upload. The distinction between Draft and Final only applies to Self- Assessment Reports (SARs) uploaded by providers. Other document types are not held as Draft or Final. How to upload a document (continued)

41 Slide No:41 © Learning and Skills Council 2006 The Bulk Upload facility allows the Inspectorates and the LSC to upload multiple files with respect to many providers in one upload. For example, Ofsted could upload CPRs for many colleges at the same time. The next few slides will work through the procedure for uploading documents in bulk. Bulk Upload of documents 2 How to upload documents NB. Please note that this facility is not intended for use by Providers.

42 Slide No:42 © Learning and Skills Council 2006 The filenames of documents to be bulk uploaded MUST include the UPIN of the provider to which the file relates. For example: 987654 Report for A College Somewhere.Pdf This is necessary to enable Document Exchange to identify to which provider each file belongs. The Gateway will not accept files that do not include the UPIN. Files uploaded by providers are exempt from this requirement because a provider can only upload documents that relate to their own organisation. A note about filenames and UPINs 2 How to upload documents Bulk upload of documents (continued)

43 Slide No:43 © Learning and Skills Council 2006 Bulk Upload of documents In this example, we will upload 3 Year Development Plans. Click the Bulk Upload option on the menu.

46 Slide No:46 © Learning and Skills Council 2006 Bulk upload of documents (continued) The system checks the filenames to match them with UPINs of providers known to the Provider Gateway. Filenames that match are uploaded and listed on the Document List. Note that the UPINs and names of providers in this example have been obscured for security purposes 2 How to upload documents Bulk upload of documents (continued)

47 Slide No:47 © Learning and Skills Council 2006 You can zip your files before uploading them. Zipping files is a way to compress them. This reduces the file size, making them faster and easier to upload and download. There are many industry-standard compression tools you can use. One of the most popular is WinZip ®. For more information about WinZip ®, go to their website at: http://www.winzip.com 2 How to upload documents Hints and Tips Zip up your files!

48 Slide No:48 © Learning and Skills Council 2006 Hints and Tips Zip up your files! (continued) 2 How to upload documents An advantage of zipping your files is that you can group files together before uploading them. An entire SAR, CPR or PPR can be uploaded or downloaded as one zipped file containing all the files comprising it. The Document List will be less cluttered, with just one zipped file for the entire document. Signing a SAR is quicker and easier, as you only have to sign the zipped file. Files zipped together must be at the same status. Don’t zip Draft and Final status files together!
