Applications are now being sought for 10 interns at leading cultural organisations within the West Midlands region as part of the University's Cultural Partnership Scheme. The paid placements are for 6 months and will start in October 2012. Each placement offers a different opportunity to learn about aspects of the arts & culture industry. Placements are available at Birmingham Museums & Art Gallery, Ironbridge Gorge Museum Trust, Sampad South Asian Arts, amongst others. This is the second year of an innovative intern scheme sponsored by the University and its cultural partners.
The Univeristy is looking for positive and creative people with demonstrable interests in new and digital media, content production, arts performance and production, collections management, language/communication, learning & access. There are 10 placements available for this six month paid internship; each offering real opportunities to gain high quality work experience, undertaking meaningful projects at leading cultural organisations in the West Midlands region. The programme is designed to increase graduates' knowledge and skills, and for interns to gain an interesting and valuable introduction to the workplace which will enhance their future employment prospects.
The structure of the programme includes joint training sessions based at the University at the start, mid-point and end of the internship, a six month workbased placement and individual mentoring.
