Virtual Work Experience

Historic England

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.
