The Unique Learner Number and the Personal Learning Record
In May 2011 the Welsh Government launched a bilingual DVD and CD-ROM package explaining the Unique Learner Number and the ULN Service for Schools in Wales. In addition, the Welsh Government has provided a series of training events for Local Authorities and schools staff and extended funding for the Central Support Team for schools for a further two years to assist with implementation.
The DVD follows a school student as she applies for a business course at her local college and goes for an interview with an employer, using her personal learning record (PLR) as part of her application information. This narrative is supported by step-by-step guidance for staff on how to register with the UK register of learning providers, obtain ULNs and manage exceptions.
The DVD is supported by a CD-ROM containing a PowerPoint presentation and leaflets explaining the ULN and the implementation of the QCF qualifications as an important part of the Credit and Qualifications Framework for Wales.
Three launch events were held during May 2011 in St Asaph (North Wales), Llandrindod Wells (Central Wales) and Cardiff (South Wales). These attracted over 250 delegates. In North and Mid Wales the keynote address was given by Stephen McMillan, Head of Information Management in the Welsh Government Department for Education and Skills (DfES). In South Wales Mary Curnock-Cook, Chief Executive of UCAS, gave the keynote address. Both emphasised the benefits that the ULN will bring for learners over time.
The Welsh Government is keen to promote a shared approach with partners throughout the UK through sharing the materials.
