Battle Bus Apprentice role description [PDF]

London Transport Museum uses the story of transport to encourage, enrich, and inspire all Londoners and those who love this city to get the most out of London.

The Museum has been working with young people over the last six years and prides itself on being an organisation that listens to young people, involving them in decision making and the running of Museum activity.

The Museum wants to appoint an apprentice to support the development and delivery of its current Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) funded project: Battle Bus. The project began with the restoration of an early twentieth-century B-type bus, which is now the foundation of a learning and outreach programme linked to the First World War commemorative anniversaries. The apprentice will also get the opportunity to complete a Level 3 NVQ in Business Administration.

The apprenticeship is designed to offer an alternative route for young people aged 18 - 25 to access a career in the cultural heritage sector. It is, therefore, not open to anyone with a qualification higher than Level 2 (e.g. we cannot accept applications from anyone who has a qualification above A Level standard).
