ISCED subsequent destination field values are missing or null


What is shown in your Data Accuracy Report?

ISCED subsequent destination field values that are missing or null are shown in your Data Accuracy Report under the tab labelled “no_ISCED_dest”.

No information has been entered for the ISCED subsequent destination. This classification was designed by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization so that education statistics can be compiled and presented on an internationally comparable basis.

For each of these records shown in your Data Accuracy Report, you will see that the “ISCED subsequent destination” column contains a value labelled “Unknown”. The information required is one of two options: the academic destination or the vocational destination.

What is the impact?

This issue does not affect your EPIs; however, the ISCED subsequent destination is required so the MoE can carry out their international reporting obligations.

What do you need to do next?

Please contact our Sector Helpdesk (email or phone: 0800 601 301) to provide us with the correct information for the “ISCED subsequent destination” field.
