These include schools, colleges, universities, training providers and awarding organisations. Many awarding organisations, including the big 5, are now using the ULN as a candidate identifier - over 3M verification transactions last summer Learner Registration Service There is now a critical mass of ULNs within the education sector

8 MIAP in Higher Education Story so far A MIAP Higher Education Advisory Group (HEAG) was formed in 2008, chaired by Bob Burgess A strategic outline business case was developed and agreed by the HEAG in April 2009. This advocated small scale pilots to test the benefits claimed in the Business Case. HEFCE and JISC are sponsoring the pilots, and contributing funds. Very good interest from the HE sector in these pilots.

9 The Drivers for Adoption in HE Potential Benefits for Learners: Access to qualifications and achievement data held about them Link to qualifications data held by HEIs and/or the HEAR Secure access to the PLR in their control Streamlining of on-line applications Better course and careers advice Potential Benefits for HEIs: [Ultimately] fewer identifiers Easier reporting and data sharing between learning providers and Agencies Greater personalisation of services Easier collaboration across learning partnerships UCAS results processing with ULN providing verified qualifications on entry from PLR data Reduction in the need to validate qualifications and achievements Better access to data for student monitoring and to support decision making Tracking progression from schools into HE and beyond Access to destination data Improved identity verification Potential Benefits for Agencies/Govt: Reduced burden of data sharing Better longitudinal analyses Trust and security Potential Benefits include... Potential Benefits for Employers: Access to verified qualifications data held in the PLR, controlled by the learner The HE Pilot will evaluate the Benefits and dis-Benefits in Case Studies
