Are you interested in a career within the museums and cultural sector? Join us for a week long course to learn about the work of different teams within the International Slavery Museum and get hands on work experience within a museum context.

During this free course, you will have the opportunity to work closely with different teams including our Education Team, Curators, Exhibitions and Communities teams to find out about engaging visitors in our museum collections, explore how we look after and collect our objects and find out what goes into putting an exhibition together. The course will be a mix of taught elements and practical tasks for participants to demonstrate the skills they have gained.

This is an unmissable opportunity for anyone looking to further their understanding of working with the cultural sector. Places are limited.
