Off-venue activities that are between 5 and 20 days duration but, when combined with other Off-venue activities achieved over the Student Course Session, sum to a total length of 20 days or more must also be returned. All activity should be reported in the reference period where the 20 day duration has been achieved

Teacher training placements in England must be returned irrespective of duration and must be reported in days.

Although optional, providers should be encouraged to return off venue activities that are fewer than 20 days in length.

If the placement spans more than one Student Course Session the provider should split the activity between each session. Unless by splitting it up, less than 20 days ends up as the duration for one of the sessions. In that case the extra few weeks are returned in the year with the majority of the duration.
