Work Experience 

The museum is committed to providing valuable and structured work experience to help build key skills and inform students’ future career choices. Throughout the week, students will gain confidence and knowledge working behind the scenes on a range of activities including collections cataloguing and care, schools and learning, front of house and social media. Students should apply at least four weeks before their placement is due to start. Please contact the museum for further information and availability.

“I found it very interesting and informative and i felt that i have gained important knowledge and skills during the days I spent at the Museum. Please will you thank all the staff and volunteers…as they were all very helpful and lovely during this week. I hope all is going well and…i will be sure to pop in and say hi!”
