This 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 provider, 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.
Further information can be found in the provider support manual and the EFA Work experience guidance note at https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/delivery-and-recording-of-work-experience.
