Careers and Work Experience
Behind the Scenes in the Museum
This day long workshop takes students through the different roles within the museum, focusing on how the Curator cares for the Collection, how the Learning Officer shares its stories, and how they work together to keep the Museum running, doing everything from marketing, to social media, and looking after volunteers. After lunch, your students will have a go at some of these tasks, by writing new labels for objects and posts for the Museum’s social media accounts
£12 per student, minimum charge of £240
Includes all materials and use of a lunch room.
Work Experience Placements
We can offer work experience to school students aged over 16 and those working towards their Duke of Edinburgh. All placements are subject to students completing an expression of interest form and an informal interview.
We get a lot of requests so ask for at least two months notice to ensure that we can properly plan the placement to that students get the most possible from their time with us
