Work experience

Would you like to find out what it is like to work with archive and library collections? Students can join us for work experience placements at Kresen Kernow. We work in line with Cornwall Council’s schools’ work experience policy and procedures, and provide a range of enjoyable learning opportunities.

Work experience students are supported by members of staff with experience of working with young people. We plan activities to provide a taster of our work and offer full guidance and support during the placement. This will help you get the most out of your experience, as well as meeting school and college expectations.

Please see the Council’s work experience scheme for more details. Students should be in full time education and aged between 14 and 18 years. If you would like to do work experience with us, you will need to apply through Cornwall Council’s work experience scheme. We also offer a wide variety of volunteer placements and opportunities.
