This field records the reason the Engagement has ended.

Code 01 should be used where the student has left the provider and been awarded a qualification or credit, even if this is not the qualification that the student was aiming for. The exception is where the student has transferred out of the provider as part of a collaborative provision arrangement in which case code 12 should be returned even if the student is awarded a qualification.

Code 11 'Other' could include a number of reasons for a student leaving but not being awarded a qualification or credit, for example health reasons, financial reasons, written off after lapse of time or academic failure or exclusion.

If the student leaves for any of these reasons but is awarded an exit qualification or credit, they must be returned as 01 'Left and awarded credit or a qualification.'

If the Engagement has ended but it is not yet known if the student will be awarded qualification or credit, for example if the exam board has not yet sat, code 98 should be returned. Once the award of qualification or credit is confirmed, this field should be updated to 01 (if the student achieved the qualification or credit) or 11 (if they did not achieve the qualification or credit.)

Where a student dies during their studies but are then given a posthumous award then they should be coded as 05 Death.
