To identify and discriminate between teacher training students.
Institutions in Wales can only use codes 0, 1, 2 and 5.
Students funded by DELNI on courses leading to eligibility to teach in Northern Ireland should be coded 1 in this field.
Code 1 includes PGCE, BEd, first degree with Qualified Teacher Status and courses leading concurrently to a degree and to a diploma in Education.
Code 2 includes courses leading to Further Education Teacher Qualification and to Nursing and Midwifery Teacher Qualification. FE courses will be specifically identified in Course.ITTPHSC code 31 'Further education'.
Code 5: TDA and HEFCE have given a working definition of an INSET course as follows:
Institutions are not expected to return a record to HESA for students on employment-based routes (e.g. GTP, OTT and RTP). The TDA collects this data via the Employment Based Routes Data Management System (EBRDMS).
Codes E (Student Associates Scheme) and F (Subject Knowledge Enhancement) instances will not be included in HESA standard populations. Codes E and F must only be used for TDA-funded provision.
Masters in Teaching and Learning (MTL) students must be coded 9 'Other TDA funded provision not elsewhere specified' in this field. MTL students must be identified as such using the M02 code in Course.COURSEAIM field.
|Change management notes||Business rule 10 updated to add Course.TTCID=2, and descriptions of Codes E and F now include 'TDA Funded'|
