The Education Department at the University’s Victoria Gallery & Museum (VG&M) is offering an internship post to help a student to gain key skills and experiences in heritage learning.
The role will benefit anyone hoping to or currently studying for a postgraduate qualification in a relevant subject, or looking for employment in the heritage education sector.
The internship will give the post holder valuable work experience and an insight into how education projects are run in a museum and gallery.
The VG&M is housed in the Grade II listed Victoria Building on Brownlow Hill, the University’s original site. Designed by Alfred Waterhouse, the Victoria building’s distinctive red brick exterior inspired the term ‘red brick’ university.
The unpaid internship post is for 1-2 days per week with the option to help with some weekend events.
Previous VG&M Interns have contributed to programme development and designed teacher and family activity resources, as well as attending fairs to promote the VG&M. Some are now working at institutions including Tate Britain, Manchester Museum and Orleans House Gallery.
