This field records the nature of employment of staff before entering employment with the reporting higher education provider (HEP)
|Applicable to||England Northern Ireland Scotland Wales|
|Valid entries and labels|
Where it appears that two codes are equally applicable, the nearest valid entry to 01 'Another publicly funded higher education institution in the UK' should be used.
The previous employment should indicate the nature of employment for staff before the date returned in Person.DATEFHEI. When this is being coded for a member of staff who was previously not returned to HESA, it is expected that this field will indicate the nature of the employment prior to being employed at the higher education institution.
It is expected that once the member of staff has entered employment with the HEP the code returned in this field will remain the same until they leave the HEP.
Where a break in continuous service occurs and an individual has not been employed elsewhere during the break, valid entry 21 'Not in regular employment' must be returned in this field.
Valid entry 05 'Research provider in the UK' and code 06 'Research provider overseas' can only be used where Person.DATEFHEI is before 2012-08-01.
Valid entry 09 'NHS/General medical or General dental practice in the UK' should be used where the nature of employment is or was within the NHS, in the broadest sense. This should include employment in an NHS body such as a Trust or Primary Care Trust and should also include employment in General medical or General dental practice. Even where other codes apply (for example General practitioners who consider themselves self-employed), this code should be used.
Valid entry 20 'Working in the voluntary sector' can only be used where Person.DATEFHEI is before 2014-08-01.
For the purposes of this field The University of Buckingham is considered to be a higher education institution (HEI).
