Work Experience

The MCA offers a flexible and practical work experience program, providing a limited number of Year 10 students with an exclusive one week behind – the – scenes peek into the dynamic and diverse Museum sector.

Students will be based in the National Centre for Creative Learning and have the opportunity to observe Creative Learning programs for various audiences, assist MCA Artist Educators with program preparation, provide Library staff with research support and engage with visitors on the Gallery floor.

Placements are limited, therefore we cannot guarantee an appointment for all applicants. For this reason we strongly recommend students have other work experience placement options available.

The work experience program takes place twice a year, June and November only.

2015 dates:

22 – 26 June & 2 – 6 November, 2015

2015 applications close Friday 3 April, 2015. We are unable to confirm the outcome of any application until all applications have been reviewed, following the closing date.

All applicants will be notified via email, by Friday 24 April 2015.
Candidates are selected on a merit basis.

Applications should be sent to the National Centre for Creative Learning Coordinator
