Notes

In the majority of cases it is expected that this value will be the same UKPRN as the reporting provider. Where it is not possible to identify a UKPRN, a generic code from the valid entry list below should be used.

This field can be repeated multiple times in order to enable providers to report courses where an award is made jointly by several bodies. For example if an award is made jointly by the reporting provider and two other bodies, Course.AWARDBOD should occur three times within the course record. Although this field can occur more than once, providers should only return the number to reflect the position with regard to the course.

This field is not intended to record a body that accredits a course awarded by the provider e.g. ITT courses that lead to QTS awarded by the NCTL or engineering courses that lead to Chartered Engineer status.

This field is collecting different data to that collected for Accreditation.ACCBODYID in the KIS record about accreditation.
