Training & internships with the Textile Conservation Studio
At the Textile Conservation Studio we offer opportunities for students and conservation graduates to further their knowledge of the work we do through short term work placements and a two year internship.
The National Trust Textile Conservation Internship
For the last 20 years the National Trust has run an internship programme for newly qualified post graduate conservators to turn theory into practice, to gain confidence and new skills and learn about the work of the Trust through its collections. Our last student completed her internship in January 2021. We are very proud of the students who have trained with us and they have all gone on to develop and contribute to the heritage world in many ways.
Due to the current pandemic, we will be pausing our internship programme to ensure that the next student has the same opportunities and training as all our past interns have received.
We will post an update on these pages when recruitment for this fixed term 2 year internship reopens. The internship is for students of conservation, either from a general conservation course or a specialist textile conservation course, who have completed their studies within a three year period prior to application.
