Fields required from institutions in All fields
Outcome of ITT instance
return to field list
This field describes the course outcome for an initial teacher training student.
|Applicable to||England Wales|
All qualification awarded records at providers in England and Wales where Course.TTCID = 1 or Q
|Valid entries and labels|
In codes 6, 7, 8, A and B 'Other standards met/not met' refers to the academic standards of the provider's ITT course, including the teaching practice element, which are monitored by the provider. 'Skills test' refers to the national skills tests in numeracy, literacy and information and communications technology (ICT) which are assessed externally via DfE.
Students who fail their teaching practice should be coded 7 or 8.
Either of codes A and B should be used when the skills test has not yet been taken.
Codes 6 - 8 and A - B are available only to providers in England.
Code C 'QTS withheld' should be used by providers in Wales only where QTS is withheld, including those cases where students are awarded a degree or other qualification but not QTS and where students fail their teaching practice. It is expected that students coded as C who are subsequently awarded QTS should have this recorded in a subsequent return to HESA as an award from dormant status.
Resit Exams and/or Results from Late Exam Boards
Providers may wish to decommit their return late in the data collection period in order to include results from late exam or re-sit boards.
This same guidance applies to ITT DfE students where the award of QTS may be delayed.
ITT DfE students may finish their course in June/July of the HESA reporting year. This date should be date recorded in ENDDATE. However the provider may not know whether the student has been awarded QTS until later. If award information is known before the HESA data collection closes at the end of November, then this should be included in QUAL and OUTCOME. DfE have confirmed that trainees who obtain a successful award up until 1 November, and are shown as such in the main HESA return, will be counted in the profiles publication. Award dates after 31 October should be included in the following HESA data collection. In neither case should ENDDATE be up-dated.
It is expected that students coded other than 1 in OUTCOME who are subsequently awarded QTS, within the year that follows, should have this recorded in QualificationsAwarded.QUAL and QualificationsAwarded.OUTCOME in a subsequent return to HESA as an award from active rather than dormant status, in line with existing MODE guidance. In this case, the QUAL code may reflect award of QTS only, i.e. code I71.
Early Years Initial Teacher Training (EYITT) programmes (England only)
Further guidance on the coding requirements for those on EYITT programmes may be found in the 'Further guidance about Early Years Initial Teacher Training (EYITT) programmes' document.
