Outcome of ITT instance
return to field list
This field describes the course outcome for an initial teacher training student.
|Applicable to||England Wales|
All qualification awarded records at providers in England and Wales where Course.TTCID = 1, 8, G or Q
|Valid entries and labels|
In codes 6, 7, 8, A and B 'Other standards met/not met' refers to the academic standards of the provider's ITT course, including the teaching practice element, which are monitored by the provider. 'Skills test' refers to the national skills tests in numeracy, literacy and information and communications technology (ICT) which are assessed externally via NCTL.
Students who fail their teaching practice should be coded 7 or 8.
Either of codes A and B should be used when the skills test has not yet been taken.
Codes 6 - 8 and A - B are available only to providers in England.
Code C 'QTS withheld' should be used by providers in Wales only where QTS is withheld, including those cases where students are awarded a degree or other qualification but not QTS and where students fail their teaching practice. It is expected that students coded as C who are subsequently awarded QTS should have this recorded in a subsequent return to HESA as an award from dormant status.
Resit Exams and/or Results from Late Exam Boards: Students who complete their instance by 31 July but who have resit examinations to take and/or whose final confirmation of award by exam boards may be after this date should be returned to HESA as leavers, with a dateleft in the reporting period ending that 31 July. If their results are known before the Student Record data collection closes, these results should be included in the return. Records for such students will be included in the DLHE survey population (assuming that they meet all other criteria). However, if the results are not known before the Student Record data collection closes, a record should be submitted with a dateleft in the reporting period ending that 31 July completed and code 98 'Completion of course - result unknown' in RSNEND. Once known, these results should be returned in the next reporting period by submitting a record with the appropriate dormant code in Instance.MODE. The date returned in Instance.ENDDATE must be the original dateleft and not be up-dated. Records returned in this way will not be included in the DLHE survey population.
Providers may wish to decommit their return late in the data collection period in order to include results from late exam or re-sit boards.
This same guidance applies to ITT NCTL students where the award of QTS may be delayed.
ITT NCTL students may finish their course in June/July of the HESA reporting year. This date should be date recorded in ENDDATE. However the provider may not know whether the student has been awarded QTS until later. If award information is known before the HESA data collection closes at the end of November, then this should be included in QUAL and OUTCOME. NCTL have confirmed that trainees who obtain a successful award up until 1 November, and are shown as such in the main HESA return, will be counted in the profiles publication. Award dates after 31 October should be included in the following HESA data collection. In neither case should ENDDATE be up-dated.
It is expected that students coded other than 1 in OUTCOME who are subsequently awarded QTS should have this recorded in QualificationsAwarded.QUAL and QualificationsAwarded.OUTCOME in a subsequent return to HESA as an award from dormant status. In this case, the QUAL code may reflect award of QTS only, i.e. code I71.
