return to field list
This field indicates the date the student commenced their ITT course. Where completed, the start date of ITT course may be different to the date recorded within the Student.COMDATE field (which records the start date of the student instance and not the ITT course).
All students where Student.COMDATE field does not record the date on which they commenced their ITT course.
This field is optional and therefore where Student.COMDATE is also the date on which the student commenced their ITT course, there is no requirement to return it. If easier, HEIs can default ITTCOMDATE with the value of Student.COMDATE.
Please note this field remains optional for 2011/12.

This field is to be used for those students who transfer onto an ITT course within the same student instance thus meaning the date on which they commenced their ITT course will be different to the start date of the instance (collected within Student.COMDATE). For example a student transfers from a first degree course to a first degree with honours leading to QTS/registration course:
