This field records the provider's own identifier for a teaching location.
|Applicable to||England Northern Ireland Scotland Wales|
All KISCourses where CourseLocation entity exists and KISCourse.DISTANCE = 0 or 2.
This field records a two character identifier for the teaching location.
CourseLocation.LOCID must be the same as that submitted in Location.LOCID.
Example 1 - Provider owned campus
Example 2 - A franchise partner
If the majority of the first year of the KIS Course is undertaken at a single location, as indicated by Location.LOCID, then that Location.LOCID should also be submitted in CourseLocation.LOCID.
If the course is undertaken at multiple locations in the first year, CourseLocation.LOCID should represent the location where the majority of time is spent.
Where a student's time in the first year is split evenly between locations, providers should pick one of those locations. In deciding which location to pick, providers may wish to consider whether either of the locations is more likely to act as a hub for the student’s activity (for example, because the library or other facilities are on one of the sites).
Quality rules relating to this entity are displayed here.
