Work Placement

We can provide work experience opportunities for school students, university students and also long-term work placements.

We offer work experience in several areas:

  • Engagement – wearing period costume and helping to engage with our visitors.
  • Learning – assisting with development and delivery of activities for schools and families.
  • Curatorial, Costume and Communications – placements are sometimes available to university students.
