Looking towards the Autumn

An exciting update… I got hired as a volunteer Education Assistant at the Museum of Brands and begin in September. The head of Education is new to the museum as well and has some great ideas about making the collection more interactive, so I’m excited to begin working with her and the rest of the […]

A new opportunity?

Yesterday, I sent a cover letter and my CV through to the Education department at the Museum of Brands for an Education Volunteer vacancy, and although it’s still several days before the deadline, I’ve already been asked to an interview!

At the first meeting for the internship module I wrote on my survey that while I didn’t have many […]

There is currently massive amounts of competition for every CCI internship advertised, and I will no doubt find myself […]
