Applicable toEngland
Coverage

All students where Student.COMDATE field does not record the date on which they commenced their ITT course.

Notes

This field is optional and therefore where Student.COMDATE is also the date on which the student commenced their ITT course, there is no requirement to return it. If easier, providers can default ITTCOMDATE with the value of Student.COMDATE.

Examples

This field is to be used for those students who transfer onto an ITT course within the same student instance thus meaning the date on which they commenced their ITT course will be different to the start date of the instance (collected within Student.COMDATE). For example a student transfers from a first degree course to a first degree with honours leading to QTS/registration course:

2009/10 2010/11
Course BA (Hons) English BEd English (QTS)
COMDATE 10 September 2009 10 September 2009
ITTCOMDATE - 14 October 2010
