"If students do not have opportunities to apply theory to practice, one result could be perceptions by employers that beginning professionals are not equipped for the world of work."

Hoy, M. (2011) Building Pathways to Working with Collections: Can Internships and Student Work Experience Help? Australian Academic and Research Libraries. 42(1) pp.29-41.


If you are undertaking an undergraduate or postgraduate qualification in History, Museum Studies, Archives and Records Management, Tourism or similar, you may feel that your course has equipped you with the relevant theoretical knowledge. However, our sector is very competitive and you may feel that you would benefit from some on-the-ground experience working behind the scenes in a busy Visitor Centre where you may be challenged to combine your knowledge with business or marketing skills to work to a deadline or a budget, lead a team of volunteers or deliver an activity to the public. Please contact Laura Hilton at visitinfo@cliftonbridge.org.uk to discuss volunteering on a self-led or office-based project which may help to build your portfolio.
