|1||Internal (simulated) work placement|
|2||External work placement|
This field describes the type of work placement being undertaken. An external work placement is time spent with an external employer, external to the learning environment and at an external site.
A simulated environment in an education institution, such as a college restaurant run by an external organisation, or experience in a college-based crèche that is a commercial enterprise do not count as an external work placement and should be recorded as internal.
Both internal and external work placements should be recorded on the ILR.
