Dear Rowin

BSI has just published the DD 8788 UKLeaP as a series of British Standard Drafts for Development.

Covering all sectors in addition to the interoperability between them, DD 8788 UKLeaP supports the immediate needs of learning and skills organizations within the UK enabling them to exchange information about learners.

The aim of the series is to set out principles and good practice as well as to specify technical requirements in detail. File formats and metadata are included. It provides essential support for the developments required to meet key parts of the Government's "Life Long Learning" agenda, and stimulates vendors to meet UK needs and market UK education internationally. An organization complies with the Draft for Development if it follows the correct procedures, and uses the correct format of metadata and data modelling.

It assists the development of a single framework for a Learner's Life Long Learner record joining up the e Portfolio, e-Passport, Skills Passports, and any other progress files.

Divided into three parts, DD 8788 UKLeaP helps stakeholders in all learning, education and training sectors including schools, colleges, universities and employers to implement Life Long Learning records. These stakeholders include:

* Administrators responsible for purchasing and quality assurance
* e-learning content developers
* Vendors
* Learning Skills Councils (Central and Local)
* Government departments
* Learning management system developers
* Learning environment system administrators
* Life Long Learning organisations
* Training and Skills organisations
* Awarding bodies
* Educational Supplies.

Please note that these Draft for Developments are not British Standards.

DD 8788 UKLeaP covers Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland, and England and also takes into account issues within Europe. It only applies to UK Learner Profiles, but contributes to the development of standards that can in due course be considered for Internationalization.
