return to field list
A combination of subject and qualification that defines what a student is aiming for.
|Applicable to||England Northern Ireland Scotland Wales|
Compulsory for all returns
This entity exists to hold fields that describe courses without having to repeat the fields on individual instances.
Every Instance must be linked to one (and only one) course. Course records can exist without links to any Instances if it is easier for an institution to return all courses rather than just those that are active in the reporting year.
Where provision within the institution allows multiple possible qualification outcomes, institutions must return separate course records for each. Even where groups of students aiming for different qualification outcomes are taught in the same classes, each group must be returned on a different course with a different course aim.
