return to field list

This field records the total planned employability, enrichment and pastoral activity for the reporting year.

Applicable toEngland

All instances at providers in England where Instance.FESTUMK = 1, 3 or 4 and Instance.REDUCEDI = 00 or 01, and Instance.FUNDMODEL = 25 or 82.


A value in the range 0 to 9999 hours (to the nearest whole hour) should be returned.

This field should be completed with the total planned timetabled employability, enrichment and pastoral hours for the student for the reporting year. These are the planned hours for the year at the start of the programme.

This field must be updated annually at the start of each teaching year.

Include in this field all planned, timetabled hours included in the study programme that are not included in the Instance.PLANLEARNHOURS field. The total of both hours fields are used to determine the full or part time funding rate for the student. Further information can be found in the EFA funding documentation. By the end of the qualifying period it is important to ensure that the planned hours reflect, as accurately as possible, the timetabled activity the student is planning to undertake for the duration of the teaching year.

Where a learner progresses to subsequent learning in the same teaching year, after completing all the activities on their original learning agreement or plan, the Education Funding Agency has set out in their funding guidance exceptional circumstances in which providers may change the planned hours to reflect this additional learning.

If a student is on a study programme that spans two or more reporting years, then this field must be returned in each year.
