Health and social care Courses in Wales and Northern Ireland


Codes 05803-05809, 06901-06919 and 11102-11107 should be used by providers in Wales, and Northern Ireland.


These codes cover the granular functions of the General Dental Council, the Health and Care Professions Council, and the Nursing & Midwifery Council.


The general codes for these bodies (05802, 06920 and 11108) should not be used.


Health and social care Courses in England


Valid entry 11108 can only be used by providers in England where students specialise part way through a Course. Once students specialise, the more specific accreditation must be returned in StudentAccreditationAim.


This only applies to Courses where student specialise part way through their Course. If all students studying a course are aiming for a more specific accreditation rather than specialising later on, the more specific accreditation must be returned in this field and valid entry 11108 must not be used.


Providers in England should not use valid entries 05802 or 06920. These record generic accreditations by the General Dental Council (GDC) and Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) respectively.


Health and social care Courses in Scotland


Providers in Scotland are encouraged to use the more granular valid entries for the General Dental Council (GDC) (05803-05809) and Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) (06901-016919) rather than the generic codes.


Codes 11102- 11107 should be used by providers in Scotland to cover the granular functions of the Nursing & Midwifery Council. Generic code 11108 'The Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC)' should not be used.


For further details on HCPC professions please see the HCPC website


Teacher training


For Courses at providers in Northern Ireland and Scotland where Course.TTCID =01 or 02, this field records the type of teacher training.


The valid entries give more granular information about the stage or phase/scope of the teacher training e.g. primary or secondary teaching.
The valid entries returned will depend upon the relevant PSRB for the teacher training:



  • General Teaching Council for Scotland (providers in Scotland): valid entries 06602-06603

  • General Teaching Council for Northern Ireland (providers in Northern Ireland): Valid entries 06502-06503


Valid entries 99802 and 99803 should be used for teacher training courses in Nursing/Midwifery (99802) and Further Education (99803).
