About Programme Aims

Adding a Programme Aim
  • The Start Date is when the Student started the Programme.
  • The Planned End Date is when the Student is expected to complete the Programme.
  • The End Date is only set once the Student actually completes the Course – It would be expected that this is blank until they have actually finished the Programme.

Note: A Student assigned to multiple Learning Aims of the same type, would only have ONE Programme Aim of this type to encompass the Learning Aims. For example, if a Student has three Learning Aims for 16-19 Student Programme, they would have ONE Programme Aim of this type to cover the Learning Aims for this period.

Assigning Programme Aims in the Student Record

To individually assign a Programme Aim, you would go to the Enrolment tab in a Student Profile and scroll down to the Programme Aim area as seen below;

Once you are in this section, you would need to add a Programme Aim by pressing the + on the top right of the Programme Aim section.

Note: Programme Types are set when adding a Programme Aim to a Student’s Record, or in bulk via Manage Programme Aims page. This must be set correctly to reflect the Course that the Student is undertaking. Your Local Authority/the DfE can assist you if you are unsure which Programme Aim to select.
