|Base data type||INSTCAMPType|
For institutional use, to prevent inappropriate use of CAMPID. Also used to record location of venue for Welsh for Adults instances
This field will collect the institution’s own campus identifier to enable institutions to identify groups of students, such as nurses or continuing education students, for their own purposes, since these may not be mutually exclusive to the strengthened requirement for Instance.CAMPID to show distinct physical site only.
For instances linked to Welsh For Adults courses, this field must contain the postcode of the venue the course is being studied at. Where the venue changes within the duration of the course, then use the postcode of where the majority of the course takes place. There is further guidance on valid postcode formats at: http://www.govtalk.gov.uk/gdsc/html/frames/PostCode-2-1-Release.htm. The business rule structure validation is slightly less strict than that described in UK Government Data Standards Catalogue, as not all parsers will support the full GDSC definition. All postcodes are validated against valid postcodes at exception.
