Work Experience

At Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums, we are able to offer one week work experience placements for students aged 15+. This is a great opportunity to get a taste of what it’s like to work in a museum or gallery, with the chance to spend some time with staff in a variety of different departments, including:

  • Learning
  • Trading
  • Front of House
  • Collections

    There is also the opportunity for students to use their experience to work towards a Discover level Arts Award qualification while on placement with us.

    Places are limited so we advise checking our volunteer pages for more information about placements. Applications for the following school term close on the last day of the previous term.

    For more information please email

    Please note we are currently unable to offer internships at any of our venues.
