Proficiency type (PROFICIENCYTYPE)
|Part of||Language proficiency (LanguageProficiency)|
|Description||This field records the type of proficiency the Student has in the language indicated in LanguageProficiency.LANGUAGEID|
|Applicable to||Scotland Wales|
|Coverage||All LanguageProficiency entities|
This field records the proficiency type that the student holds based on their own self assessment.
Providers in Wales are required to return the entity for each of the proficiency types that a student has and the level (or ability) is only returned in LanguageProficiency.PROFICIENCYLEVEL where the proficiency type is 02.
Code 06 Sign is only applicable to providers in Scotland where the LanguageProficiency.LANGUAGEID = 04. This is the only valid entry applicable to providers in Scotland and so Scottish providers should not return 01-04, 96, or 99. If the student is not a British Sign Language user, this entity should not be returned.
It is expected that this field and the associated Level field for providers in Wales will be updated during the lifetime of an Engagement to allow for a student to become more proficient over time.
99 will be used where the provider does not know the information.
|Quality Rules||Quality rules to follow|
|Reason required||To enable monitoring of Welsh Student's ability to communicate in Welsh. To monitor the number of users of British Sign Language at Scottish providers to aid the Scottish Government's policy regarding improving the experience of BSL users in Scotland.|
