Sabrina was with us for four weeks over summer 2014 on a European Placement from Geneva. She helped to design some consultation based around ideas for our new exhibition, ran a series of art workshops and family drop-in events, assisted with guided tours and helped to create new text. Sabrina also helped out in the Visitor Centre and attended regional tourism meetings and planning meetings for our 150th anniversary celebrations.

Kitila is a Civil Engineering student on an 8 week summer internship with the University of the West of England. He is developing a physics resource pack for KS3 pupils which investigates bridge engineering and has been working with the Architecture Centre and Bristol University to achieve this.

Arnnav is volunteering to achieve his Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award. He has undertaken till training and is part of our Front of House team.

Katie, Bethany, Fred and Lucie are all students who want some workplace experience for their CVs. They work with the Visitor Services Team booking in around their other commitments. Between them, they have developed visitor surveys, created consultations about our new exhibition and helped with events and guided tours - as well as helping with day-to-day tasks in the office.

Aoi, Eduardo, Jose  and Sagan all wanted to improve their English. They paired up with Front of House volunteers to help staff our Visitor Centre and answer customer enquiries, helped with guided tours and ventured out and about on the bridge as part of our team of 'Explainers'.
