Timescales for data collection


return to index

Version 1.0 Produced 2012-04-30

The details of students on an ITT course need to be forwarded to the TA for the purpose of allocating a Teacher Reference Number (TRN). Data for all TA-funded ITT provision must be provided as a first submission by 1st October 2012, and should be finalised by the 2nd Wednesday in October. HEIs can, with TA permission, update this information until the 4th Wednesday in October and it is on this date that the final download of data will be taken by the TA. TA will use this data to create the Trainee Numbers Census. Timings for the QTS and Induction division of the TA are very much dependent on the start date of the individual student on the course and could be anytime in the reporting period 01 August 2012 - 31 July 2013. As there are likely to be many commencement dates HESA will not be monitoring or chasing up individual submissions.

In order to be accepted by HESA, data must pass HESA validation checks. Institutions are encouraged to test their data locally using the validation kits made available by HESA before submitting data to the collection. Data which fails validation will not be considered to have been returned to the Agency.

Full details of the collection schedule will be published closer to the date.
