The QCF recognises achievement through the award of credits for unit and qualifications. On the QCF each learner must have a Unique Learner Number (ULN). The ULN is a national identifier, which a learner will keep for the rest of their lifetime. It is provided by the MIAP Learner Registration Service (LRS) and is used to create a Personal Learner Record (PLR) for each learner. The PLR gives access to a single record of a learner's achievements, in a user-friendly format which breaks down the credits, units and qualifications for learners and their prospective employers.
UAL Awarding Body uses Unique Learner Numbers (ULN’s) as unique identifiers, we do not issue additional student registration numbers, and we update achievement to the Personal Learning Record (PLR) on a monthly basis.
UAL Awarding Body qualifications are all on the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF), a framework that recognises achievement through the award of credits for units and qualifications.
On the QCF each student must have a ULN, a national identifier, which an individual will keep for the rest of his or her lifetime.
