All OffVenueActivity entities

The type of off-venue activity.

This field identifies the type of off-venue activity being undertaken.

01 Teacher training placement

Valid entry 01 should be returned where the off-venue activity involves time spent in schools, early years or further education settings as part of a coherent training programme that enables ITT trainees to achieve Qualified Teacher Status or registration with a General Teaching Council.

This data can be used to determine if there is any relationship between where a trainee completes placements and where they are subsequently employed as teachers.

Scottish providers are not required to return students on Initial Teacher Training placements.

02 Unpaid work

Valid entry 02 should be returned where the off-venue activity is work based and the student does not earn a salary from the organisation during the placement. This can include volunteering.

03 Paid work

Valid entry 03 should be returned where the student is undertaking a paid work placement.

04 Studying

Valid entry 04 should be returned where the off-venue activity involves a study placement. This can include field trips.

If the activity changes type, for example paid to unpaid, during a placement then the provider should treat these as distinct activities. The first entity should be closed with an ACTENDDATE reflecting the date at which the activity type changed. The second entity would open the day after (ACTSTARTDATE) with a new value in ACTTYPEID.
