Year 11 Students…

Transforming People to Transform Museums is a programme that supports museum trainees to develop core heritage and business development skills.

Placements are for one year and trainees will be hosted by one of four local museums/museum services:

  • Colchester and Ipswich Museums
  • Museum of East Anglian Life (Stowmarket)
  • The Long Shop Museum (Leiston), and
  • Palace House: National Heritage Centre for Horseracing and Sporting Art (Newmarket).

Each trainee placement will enable trainees to gain hands-on experience and a strong foundation in museum/heritage roles. Trainees will be expected to undertake a standalone Level 3 Diploma in Cultural Heritage through the awarding body AIM Awards.
In addition, a Bursary of £14,400 will be paid to each trainee, per year placement (£1,200 per month).
