This field indicates the mode of employment for the contract held at the return date, or the end date of the contract if earlier.
There is no single definition of term-time only as the number and length of terms may differ from one higher education provider (HEP) to another. HEPs are therefore advised to use a definition applicable to their HEP.
Code 6 'Dormant' should be used to identify staff who, while holding a contract with the HEP, have not undertaken any work during the reporting year. This would include lecturing staff whose modules were not chosen by any students during the year but who are kept on zero hour contracts. It should also be used for those on secondments or sabbaticals for the whole year. Code 6 'Dormant' should also be used when satisfying the expected contact population for next year by reporting leavers from the previous reporting period.
