return to field list
This field identifies staff that hold Clinical Excellence/Merit/Distinction Awards
|Applicable to||England Northern Ireland Scotland Wales|
All staff where any Contract.CLINICAL is coded 1
|Valid entries and labels|
In England there are two award systems running concurrently (coded 01-05 and 06-08) and awards from both systems should be returned. An individual can hold only one award. Codes 06 'Merit Award (B) (England & Wales)', 07 'Merit Award (A) (England & Wales)', and 08 'Merit Award (A+) (England & Wales)' should be used where a staff member holds a Distinction Award made by England or Wales.
Each of the valid entries for the field can be used by higher education providers (HEPs) in any administration and the country recorded after each code refers to the country making the award and to which the scheme belongs. Once made, the award should stay with the individual irrespective of the country of employment.
This field should be updated when an existing member of staff gains a higher qualification than that already held.
Providers should account for the award from the point it is paid to the individual.
