For FE colleges only, it is possible to set up the qualification data for the statistical returns at this point to avoid having to enter it at a later date. To enable this feature, a parameter should be checked on. You can find this parameter on the SIR tab, by clicking System Setup > Housekeeping > System Definitions > SIR. The SIR Heading can be selected using the appropriate pop-up field. The values displayed are defined by the appropriate funding council and are maintained within the SIR FE/HE Definitions option.
