Main changes compared to SWC 2019

DfE Validation

Routines | Statutory Returns | School Workforce Census


Capita have advised that the DfE has added validation query 6260Q. This query checks whether a school has at least one member of staff with a qualification subject of ‘SEN – SENCO – Z201’.  Capita assume that where schools have checked and it is true that no member of staff has this qualification the school just needs to add a note on COLLECT.
