|Applicable to||England Northern Ireland Scotland Wales|
All KISCourses where applicable and KISCourse.KISTYPE = 1 or 2
|Reason required||This entity exists to hold fields that describe course accreditation|
This entity records the professional accreditations for the course
In all cases the accrediting body and the type of accreditation awarded should be recorded in Accreditation.ACCTYPE.
This entity must not be returned where Course.KISTYPE = 3.
This entity must not be reported for courses that do not have professional accreditation.
The XML structure allows for up to 10 accreditations to be recorded for a single KIS Course.
If accreditation is at the institution rather than course level, provided accreditation applies to all courses offered by the institution it should be recorded on every KIS.
Any accreditation that a course has that will potentially apply to 2014/15 entrants should be included in the KIS even if the accreditation will need renewal. An existing accreditation should only be excluded if it will expire and there are no plans to renew it.
