Initial Teacher Training 2019/20
Fields required from institutions in England
return to field list
This field identifies students who are part of a specific scheme that is to be monitored independently. Valid entries will change from year to year to reflect current schemes.
All instances at providers in England that are part of a named scheme.
|Valid entries and labels|
This field collects information with respect to student instances that are part of a scheme. Where a student transfers course within the same instance, Student.INITIATIVES should continue to identify the scheme.
The field should not be used for students who might previously have undertaken an initiative as part of a different instance or at another provider.
This field should be returned twice if a student falls under two separate schemes.

|Reason required||From time to time funders introduce initiatives where, for a limited period, there is a requirement to track students who are recruited under the particular initiative. In order to achieve this monitoring potential, a general purpose field will be added to the record, to which valid entries will be added to identify individual schemes as required. The DfE needs to be able to link ITT students in England to the intake target from which the DfE has allocated numbers. In addition, only a subset of HECoS codes are appropriate for ITT programmes. The DfE wants to ensure that only appropriate subjects are recorded.|
