Cultural and heritage venue operations

Cultural and heritage venue operations

“The cultural and heritage venue operations apprenticeships covers protecting and maintaining historical documents, buildings and collections for the benefit of the general public”

Cultural heritage, owned and held in trust on behalf of the public, is the legacy of past generations that is preserved and shared with today’s society and kept for future generations. It encompasses historic buildings, landscapes and collections—from towns, cities and rural spaces in the UK, to collections from across the world. You’ll likely work for a public sector organisation or charity, but you could work in the commercial sector, either self-employed or in commercial organisation. As an intermediate apprentice, your options will include training as a conservation assistant, perhaps overseeing cleaning and restoration projects, hosting tours for groups, and supporting curators. As an advanced apprentice, you could train as an assistant archivist, assistant exhibition organiser, or assistant museum/art gallery curator.
