Work Experience

Historic England is pleased to offer a virtual work experience programme for 16-18 year olds twice per year, usually in February half term and again over the summer. The programme is designed to give delegates an insight into the wonderful careers available within heritage.

Our three-day programme includes live content, talks from guest speakers and the opportunity to contribute to some of our work as we champion historic places to help people understand, value and care for them. All delegates will receive a certificate of completion of their work experience at Historic England at the end of the programme.

Who is the scheme for?

The virtual work experience programme is open to 16-18 year olds and takes place online. Applications are open to all and we encourage applications from those who are considering a career in heritage.

How can I apply?

We are able to accommodate up to 50 delegates for each programme. Tickets can be booked, free of charge, through Eventbrite on a first come first served basis. We usually release tickets for virtual work experience 6 – 8 weeks before the event for sign up. If we are currently opening up tickets the link to sign up will be here.
