Notes

This field should show the employment function for the contract at the return date or the end date of the contract if earlier. The employment function relates to the contract of employment and not to the actual work undertaken.

Code 1 'Academic contract that is teaching only' applies only to contracts indicating that staff are teaching only.

Code 2 'Academic contract that is research only' should be used for those contracts where the primary academic employment function is research only, even though the contract may include a limited number of hours teaching (up to 6 hours per week or pro-rata for part-time staff). This code is particularly important for higher education providers (HEPs) in Scotland, as SFC has a specific need to monitor Contract Research Staff (CRS).

Code 3 'Academic contract that is both teaching and research' applies to contracts that include 6 or more hours of teaching per week (averaged over the number of actual teaching weeks) as a minimum (pro-rata for part-time staff) and the remaining contract hours as research only.

If a contract is for both academic and non-academic work then the appropriate code from 1 to 3 should only be used where the primary employment function is teaching and/or research.

Code 9 'Academic contract that is neither teaching nor research' should be used for academic contracts where the primary employment function is not teaching and/or research.
