This field contains the subset of codes applicable to Initial Teacher Training courses in England from the Instance.MODE field in the Student record.

With reference to code 01, the funding councils (which for this record is the TDA) have agreed that a common definition of full-time is that course years must involve a minimum of 24 weeks study.

Codes 63 and 64 for dormant can be used only if the student is not expected to be actively studying at anytime during the reporting period. Students that have previously been reported to TDA as active but are now dormant should be reported with code 63 or 64 as applicable.

Where a student has changed their mode of study within the reporting year, the record should show the current or latest position. However students involved in re-sits after the completion of the taught or structured part of their course should not have their mode of study up-dated. For example a full-time student who finishes the courses in June but has to take resits in September should not be re-coded; whilst they were active on the course they were a full-time student.
