The CASCOT coding tool has been provided to assist HEIs in allocating SOC codes for their staff. This system allows job titles to be allocated to SOC2010 codes. There is a help guide available to assist in using this system. Once a user has logged in to the HESA Data Collection System, they can access the CASCOT coding tool from the bottom of the page.
Detailed definitions of the codes can be found in SOC2010 Volume 1
SOC2010 Major Groups are defined by the first digit of the code.
HESA has commissioned a HE specific coding index which is closely based on the Standard Occupational Classification, and which is designed to aid in assigning staff to the relevant codes: Occupational Coding for Higher Education Staff.
