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: TA and HEFCE have given a working definition of an INSET course as follows:

An INSET/In-service course is one for which the primary (but not necessarily the only) purpose is to improve the effectiveness of teachers, lecturers or trainers. In considering whether this is the purpose of particular course, institutions may wish to consider the content of the course and course literature, including prospectuses and any other marketing material.

Institutions are not expected to return a record to HESA for students on employment-based routes (e.g. GTP, OTT and RTP). The TA collects this data via the Employment Based Routes Data Management System (EBRDMS).

Code F (Subject Knowledge Enhancement) instances will not be included in HESA standard populations.

Masters in Teaching and Learning (MTL) students must be coded 9 'Other TA funded provision not elsewhere specified' in this field. MTL students must be identified as such using the M02 code in Course.COURSEAIM field.
