To allow monitoring of FE students by qualification aim.


For internally validated courses not funded by LSC or Welsh Assembly Government DCELLS, institutions can use the ILR non-specific code of '66666666' to identify these courses in this field.

Where there are any HE level students on an instance linked to this course and funded by LSC or Welsh Assembly Government DCELLS, (code 3 'The student is an LSC/Welsh Assembly Government DCELLS funded learner studying at HE level' in Instance.FESTUMK) then Course.COURSEAIM, Course.FEQAIMC, and Course subject must all be completed.

If (after a discussion with Welsh Assembly Government DCELLS) a generic code or '66666666' is used within this field then Welsh Assembly Government DCELLS requires institutions to also complete Course subject in order to give detail of the subject area of the qualification.
