Notes

This field contains the subset of codes applicable to Initial Teacher Training Courses in England from the CourseSubject.SBJCA field in the Student record.

When more than one subject is returned the tags surrounding the main subject code should include the attribute Main="1". For example if the subjects of the teaching qualification gained are French and History, with French as the main subject, then French should be returned as: <SBJCA Main="1">R100</SBJCA>

For initial teacher training students in England

The NCTL needs to be able to link ITT students in England to the intake target from which the NCTL has allocated numbers. In addition, only a subset of JACS codes are appropriate for ITT programmes. The NCTL wants to ensure that only appropriate subjects are recorded. At providers in England students identified as being initial teacher training students must be coded using this subset of JACS. Further details are given below.

Primary ITT Programmes (i.e. Student.ITTPHSC 51, 52, 53, 71, 72, 73, 74, 75, 76 and 77)

The requirement on primary programmes to train students in at least one specialism is no longer compulsory.

Students commencing programmes of study after 1 September 2002 who choose not to study a primary specialism should use code X120 in this field.

Where trainees continue to study a primary specialism, a valid JACS code should be used in this field as follows:

1C690 'Sport & exercise science not elsewhere classified' is valid for Primary PE specialists only. Non-specialists should be coded C600 'Physical education' instead.

2X160 'Training teachers - specialist' is valid for Primary Maths specialists only.

Providers should ensure that codes relating to the subject the student is funded for are returned. Any provider wishing to enter a code not included in the current subject list should contact the NCTL directly.

Secondary ITT Programmes and ITT Programmes Covering the 7-14 and 9-14 Age Range (i.e. Student.ITTPHSC codes 54, 55, 56, 57, 78, 79, 80 or 81)

All programmes must train students in at least one specialism. It is essential that this specialism corresponds to the target from which the NCTL has allocated numbers. Some Programmes will train students to teach additional specialisms.

For the specialisms:

The table below sets out the list of subjects appropriate to secondary ITT programmes with corresponding JACS codes.
