Uniquely Identified by

Each Curriculum accreditation (CurriculumAccreditation) is uniquely identified by:

Applicable to England Northern Ireland Scotland Wales
Coverage All Courses where at providers in Northern Ireland and Scotland where Course.TTCID = 01 or 02.
All other Courses where applicable.

This entity records where the Course has an accreditation from a Professional, Statutory or Regulatory body (PSRB) for architecture, teaching and clinical bodies.

A Course can have multiple accreditations, one CurruciulumAccreditation entity is returned per accreditation.

If the Course has no relevant accreditation, this entity is not returned.

Courses can gain and lose accreditation, the valid from and to dates therefore indicate the period of time during which the accreditation is valid. All students associated with the Course between these dates are therefore considered to be aiming for the stated accreditation. A valid to date is not required to be submitted for an accreditation that is still valid as it may not be known how long an accreditation may be held. This prevents the need for a new Course to be created each time it gains or loses accreditation.
