Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education Record 2013/14
All activities - Q1
return to field list
The field identifies all of the activities that the HE leaver was doing on the census date.
|Applicable to||England Northern Ireland Scotland Wales|
All HE leavers.
|Question||Q1. On [the census date] were you. . .? Please tick ALL the activities you were doing on [the census date] and then indicate which one of them is most important to you.|
|Valid entries and labels|
All of the boxes ticked by the HE leaver must be coded.
One of the activities returned in this field must be identified as the leaver's most important activity in Student.MIMPACT.
Code X 'Ineligibility or explicit refusal' should be used when the question is not answered by the HE leaver due to either ineligibility or explicit refusal. This code can only be used when either code 07 'Deceased' or code 08 'Reply received explicitly refusing to provide information' is returned in Student.STATUS.
As this is an element that can occur more than once, only return the number of elements required for the data. Padding out the number of elements so that the maximum number of occurrences are returned will result in a validation error, as values will either be repeated, or the use of a default or unknown code will make the data inconsistent.
If the leaver completes more than one activity but does not identify which is the most important, in the first instance the HEP should try and contact the leaver. If this is not possible the HEP can use their judgement to decide the most important.
|Required for valid response||Yes|

|Change management notes||The labels for valid entries 1, 2 and 8 have changed to 'Working full-time (including self-employed/freelance, voluntary or other unpaid work, developing a professional portfolio/creative practice or on an internship/placement)', 'Working part-time (including self-employed/freelance, voluntary or other unpaid work, developing a professional portfolio/creative practice or on an internship/placement)' and 'Doing something else (e.g. retired, looking after home or family)' to accommodate the addition of examples. Valid entry 3 'Unemployed and looking for work' has been removed to be replaced by the new valid entry 9 'Unemployed' to ensure that unemployed leavers are recorded regardless of whether or not they are looking for work. The question has been changed in line with the 'Changes to the questionnaire' document.|
