Further guidance about returning DfE programmes (excluding EYITT)

Version 1.0 Produced 2018-05-02

The Department for Education (DfE) have defined how ITT courses returned in the ITT In-year record should then be returned in the Student record. Providers in England are required to include all students studying on any of these routes in their submission to HESA. The table below identifies which data items are used to identify the different routes and the valid entries applicable to each route. Many of the data items relevant to these students are applicable to both the Student record and the ITT record; treatment of students should be consistent between both returns.

NOTE: Although ALLPLACE coding text refers to an 'allocated place' this actually represents a trainee recruited before any recruitment control was applied by the DfE (i.e. recruitment was closed), or a trainee specifically on the School Direct (Salaried) route employed in a state maintained School (including an academy or free school). See recruitment controls documentation on GOV.UK here.
