Manchester Art Gallery

Work experience and placements

Year 10 work experience

We offer 1 week work experience placements to Year 10 students who study at school in the Manchester area.
We work through work placement agencies to offer placements to targeted schools.

N.B. We have allocated all our Year 10 placements for Spring – Summer 2020 and are unable to take on any more students this year.

If you are aged between 14 – 19 year old and are looking to get more involved at Manchester Art Gallery then have a think about attending one of our Creative Consultants sessions. These sessions take place on Sunday afternoons once a month and in school holidays. They are open to any 14 – 19 year old living in Greater Manchester.


We offer placements to postgraduate arts students studying at universities in the Manchester /Salford area. These are arranged directly with the university involved.

We work with a broad range of community partners to offer bespoke placements. If you are an organisation seeking placements then please contact Meg Parnell for an initial chat.
