Work experience - secondary school

Attingham Park provides valuable and varied week-long work experience placements for students aged 14 – 16 years old.

During the standard week long placement students will gain an overview of what it’s like to work in different areas for the National Trust at Attingham Park. The week long placement will include experience within retail, the outdoors, catering, learning, events, the Mansion, and Visitor Reception (dates dependent).

These work experience placements are available at set times throughout the year to coincide with the main local school organised work experience weeks.
