The Learning team, which is responsible for delivering education and learning programmes at the London Transport Museum (LTM), has six years’ experience supporting, working and learning with young people.
During this time we have developed a deep understanding of how we can use the LTM collection, our two sites in west and central London, and links with Transport for London (TfL), to provide access to a range of inspiring and fun activities that meet the diverse needs of young Londoners.
In 2014-15 we hosted four apprentices. The programme, funded by both Arts Council England and Heritage Lottery Fund, allowed us to experiment with and develop a bespoke Museum-owned apprenticeship programme.
It gave young people an opportunity to learn alongside us, cultivating new transferable skills and sector knowledge, resulting in enthusiastic, informed, culturally-aware professionals. We are currently hosting three apprentices throughout 2015-16 in the Learning team funded by Luke Rees Pulley Charitable Trust, Heritage Lottery Fund and Arts Council England.
Hosting apprentices at LTM has been an exciting and informative learning journey not only for the apprentices, but also for staff and the organisation as a whole.
We encourage you to consider hosting apprentices to foster home-grown talent at the heart of your organisation and reap the benefits the experience will bring.
