All the details about the opportunities available in Year 3 are due to be published by 30th April 2012.
As conservators and preservers, we’re always thinking about the future. Planning for the future. Our Passport To Your Future programme supports our commitment to training and increasing the diversity of those that we do train to work in the heritage sector. And we were awarded £529,000 by the Heritage Lottery Fund to help with this programme, so we can do more now than we ever have before.
Anyone can apply, and we especially welcome applications from people who are currently under-represented in the heritage sector. That means people from a diverse range of backgrounds, including members of the black and minority ethnic (BAME) community, people with disabilities, long-term unemployed and those that underachieved at school.
You’ll learn from our experienced professionals at one of incredible properties, and receive on the job training for a whole year, whilst getting paid. Working with your own mentor, you’ll design your own structured training programme to give you skills relevant to your personal interests and strengths.
You don’t need qualifications or experience – you just have to share our passion and enthusiasm for what we do. We’ll give you a job, new skills, experience, training, a reference, a skills passport, a really impressive portfolio, and an improved chance of employment. Not forgetting a new set of friends and like-minded people who’ll be there to support you throughout your placement.
