During my time as a Junior Learning Producer at Historic Royal Palaces, it has been my goal to create opportunities for a diverse younger audience within the Heritage and Museums Sector. I am a passionate believer that these spaces nurture a great platform for young people to learn and connect to their past.
During my placement at Historic Royal Palaces, I managed a range of programmes and projects across informal and formal learning, targeted at our young audience (4 – 19 years old). I supported the management of the Time Explorers Challenge, a year-long flagship CPD school programme which involved 4,800 school students and co-ordinated a variety of work experience students and young volunteers as part of our Work-Based Learning Programme. Alongside such projects, I have also had the pleasure of presenting at a Historical Association Conference, produce a showcase magazine and assist the organisation of our annual youth-take over Music Festival with a reach of over 1,200 students.
Inspired by my traineeship at Historic Royal Palaces, I also founded an award-winning Intern and Apprentice Network across our palaces named HRP Emerge which I chose to create in response to the needs of fellow trainees, interns and apprentices.
