|Description:|| This field collects a description of the leaver's job title.|
Q6. What will your job title be?
|Notes:|| Core field for employed leavers.|
Field 8, SIC and field 11, SOCDLHE in the record are core fields (it is the fields that are core really, not the questions) and must be completed for all employed leavers. Each of these fields has two questions on the questionnaire linked to it (questions 3 and 4 and questions 7 and 8 respectively), either or both of which might provide the information necessary to code field 8, SIC and field 11, SOCDLHE. If the leaver answers only one of a pair of questions, but provides sufficient information to allow the institution to code the corresponding field then it is a valid return. On the telephone script one question from each pair has been highlighted as core the one that will allow institutions to also complete field 7, MAKEDO and field 10, JOBTITLE respectively. If when completing the telephone script the caller does not think that the answer provided to question 3 (highlighted as core) gives enough information to code field 8 they should go on and ask question 4. Similarly with questions 6 and 7 to complete field 11, SOCDLHE.
In an attempt to ease the burden of DLHE on institutions, and with agreement of the statutory users, the return of text information in Fields 7, MAKEDO and 10, JOBTITLE has been made voluntary, at least for this year. If institutions intend to key the text of job titles and/or employers business for their own purposes then they are asked to return it to HESA, but they are not required to key it only for HESA's benefit if they have no need for it internally. It is understood that the majority of institutions do key job titles but not employers business (preferring, if anything, to key the employers name). Since it is in relation to SOC that HESA is currently working to develop coding assistance, we are confident that there should still be sufficient data returned to allow sector-wide coding practice to be examined and data fed into the development process. If your institution does not choose to return the text information in one or both of fields 7, MAKEDO and 10, JOBTITLE then default codes 'XXXX' should be used in the fields.
Institutions should note that coding practice of individual institutions who do not return the text could be investigated as part of any audit process.
Default code 'XXXX' must be used when field 4, METHOD = '9' or field 5, EMPCIR = '06' to '14'.
