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.

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

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 and 11109 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.
