HE-BCI template: C17032 and C18032

Closed 2 Sep 2020

Opened 21 Jul 2020

Overview

We have now extended the closing date to 31 August 2020. Please note, you will not need to complete this survey if you have already submitted a response on behalf of your organisation.

There was an error in the HE-BCI template for 2017/18 (C17032) and 2018/19 (C18032).

Table 3 of the template ‘Regeneration and development programmes’, should have contained subhead 1b ESF (European Social Fund) income.

However, this read as ESFA (common acronym for Education & Skills Funding Agency) as in image below.

The guidance for this table in the C17032 and C18032 coding manuals correctly referenced ESF.

We would like to understand from providers whether the data submitted in head 1b was based on ESF income or ESFA income.

We are asking all providers that submitted to these returns to complete the survey and if possible, provide us with the correct figure for ESF income.

The data that you submitted for C17032 and C18032 is available in our Open Data section.

To review the impact of this issue we would like to receive this information as soon as possible, with the deadline for completing the form the 7 August 2020.
