Description
This field identifies the specific scheme associated with the Engagement.
Notes

Certain valid entries exist in both this field and Course.COURSEINITID. In this case the initiative should be returned at the level at which it applies. If the initiative applies to all students on a Course, it should be returned in CourseInitaitive. If it varies on a student by student basis, it should be returned in StudentInitiative for each applicable Engagement. For example you could have one course with different mode or length. Some students might be on an eligible pathway and others not thus the requirement to record this information on a student level.

Where for ease providers wish to return the initiative at the student level rather than at the course level but it applies to the whole course, all students on the course must be returned appropriately.

001 Abridged ITT course (England only)

Code 001 'Abridged ITT course', is to be used where a student is taking a course that has been shortened, but that is not classed as the Assessment Only Route.

This valid entry should only be used for School Direct Salaried students (Course.TTCID = 01 and Engagement.ENTRYRTE = 03).

004 Higher/Degree Apprenticeship

A Higher/Degree Apprenticeship incorporates a work-based learning programme and leads to a nationally recognised qualification at NVQ levels 4, 5, 6 or 7 or equivalent. Code 004 is used to identify students in England, Scotland or Northern Ireland for whom the StudentRegistration comprises any part of the study component of a Higher/Degree Apprenticeship Framework or Standard.

For providers in Wales this should be used to identify Higher Apprenticeships at levels 4 and 5. Degree level apprenticeships should be recorded as 020 HEFCW funded degree apprenticeship scheme where they are funded through this scheme.

005 Postgraduate loan eligibility (England only)

Code 005 'Postgraduate loan eligibility' should be used to identify students on courses that are eligible for a postgraduate loan for Masters or Doctoral study. All students on the course should have this code returned even if they are not in receipt or personally eligible for the loan. This apples to Courses that are:

Masters:

  • Full-time, lasting 1 or 2 academic years,
  • Part-time, lasting 2 to 4 academic years - no more than twice the length of the equivalent full-time course,
  • Part-time for up to 3 years, where no equivalent full-time course exists.

Doctoral

  • Full-time or part-time, lasting 3 to 8 academic years,
  • Taught or research-based, or a combination of both,
  • Provided by a UK university with research degree awarding powers.

If more than one provider delivers the course and one is overseas, students may still be eligible for the Postgraduate Doctoral Loan so long as:

  • The UK Provider is the lead institution
  • At least 50% of the study time over the whole course in the UK

This initiative should only be returned where Qualification.QUALCAT = D0003, E0000, L0000, L0001, M0003, M0004, M0006, M0007, M0015, M0021 or where Course.PREREQUISITE = 02 and CurriculumAccreditation.CURACCID = 00103.

This initiative can be returned on CourseInitative.COURSEINITID or StudentInitiative.STUINITID but not both.  There will be validation in place to prevent this.

007 European Social Fund (ESF) Developing Scotland's Workforce (DSW) programme (Scotland only)

Code 007 should be used by Scottish providers to identify students whose places are funded through the European Social Fund (ESF)s Developing Scotland's Workforce (DSW) programme.

009 Maths and Physics Chairs Programme (England only)

Code 009 'Maths and Physics Chairs Programme' should only be used by those providers with students who have entered ITT through the Maths and Physics Chairs Programme. Where 'Maths and Physics Chairs Programme' is used in StudentInitiative.STUINITID, Course.TTCID must be coded 01 and Engagement.ENTRYRTE must be coded 02 'School Direct tuition fee' or 03 'School Direct salaried'.

More guidance can be found on the 'Get in to Teaching' website, here https://getintoteaching.education.gov.uk/explore-my-options/specialist-training-options/researchers-in-schools

010 Primary General (with Maths) (England only)

Code 010 'Primary General (with Maths)' should only be used by those providers designated to provide this course for which specific courses have been assigned in the subject 'Primary General (with Maths)' by the Department for Education. Where this code is used in StudentInitiative.STUINITID, Course.TTCID must be coded 01, QualificationSubject.QUALSUBJECT must be coded 100511 'primary teaching' and StudentAccreditationAim.STUACCID must be coded 13909 - 13915.

From the 2020/21 year onwards, Primary General (with Maths) is no longer an active initiative. For continuing students who started their course before 01 August 2020, Primary General (with Maths) can still be returned.

011 Primary mathematics specialist (England only)

Code 011 'Primary mathematics specialist' should only be used by those providers designated to provide this course. Where this code is used in StudentInitiative.STUINITID, Course.TTCID must be coded 01, QualificationSubject.QUALSUBJECT must be coded 101085 'Specialist teaching' and StudentAccreditationAim.STUACCID must be coded 13909 - 13915.

016 Articulation (Scotland only)

Valid entry 016 is to be used in the case of students on one of the places for which SFC have provided additional funding to increase levels of articulation, these students will study at a further education college for the first one or two years of their programme, but will have associate student status with the provider during this time.

This scheme funds places rather than students directly; as a consequence, providers may allow another student to be substituted onto the course if the original articulating student fails to continue. Where a student withdraws from the programme and is thus substituted with an alternative student, the new student should be recorded as at the point they are substituted in i.e. the StudentInitiative.STUINITID will need to reflect the latest position at the point of substitution. The SFC recommends that good communication between partners is essential when it comes to identifying these additional places.

019 Additional ITT place for PE with a priority subject (England only)

Code 019 'Additional ITT place for PE with a priority subject' should be returned with QualificationSubject.QUALSUBJECT code 100433 (Sport and exercise sciences), one of the codes listed below should be used in conjunction with it.

020 HEFCW funded degree apprenticeship scheme (Wales only)

Code 020 should be used for degree apprenticeships in Wales that are part of the scheme being funded by HEFCW from 2018/19. Degree apprenticeships will be delivered at level 6. These differ to the higher apprenticeships coded as 004 as higher apprenticeships in Wales are funded through the Welsh Governments work-based learning contract and are delivered at levels 4 and 5.
