Case study - Cirencester College
Cirencester College had 7 students on placement at the Corinium Museum, all absolutely loving the experience!
The Museum is a real focus of our town and the passion they have for supporting students and engaging young people with local history and culture is fantastic!
Some had the opportunity to do placements linking to creative artistry, drawing artefacts from the museum, which were used in marketing and advertising materials. They are also made items such as screen printed cushions that have been used in the children’s area of the museum.
Others got involved in the educational side and assisted and delivered teaching sessions to primary school classes who visited the museum; you can find specific details of each of the placements in the link below:

Emma Stuart is the Learning Development Officer at the museum and is our main contact in setting up the vacancies and supporting the students on their placements.
Each student applied for their position and then attended an interview before starting. All of these aspects have helped with developing employability skills and helping to prepare them for the world of work.
We would like to thank the Corinium Museum for the opportunities given and their ongoing support of the European Social Funded (ESF) EDGE Project.
