Work Experience

In 2019 Bristol Music Trust developed a pilot programme with ten young people ages 14-15 from across Bristol to come behind the scenes and join us for a week of work experience. These young people learnt about the different roles in our organisation, attended a live performance and completed a Bronze Arts Award.

Building on this pilot in 2020 we are working directly with targeted schools across the city to recruit participants who would otherwise not have access to the arts. While this may change in the future, for the 2019/2020 academic year we will not be opening applications to the public.

Unfortunately we are unable to accept any other work experience enquiries. We are able to offer whole class career insight days and activity on a case by case basis upon request directly from school teachers.
