Our apprentice programmes consist of a programme of work experience and learning, together with ‘off the job’ learning/education, leading to a nationally recognised qualification. The range of qualifications range from post GCSE to degree level apprenticeship standards with approved providers and college based or on site assessment.
We currently run apprentice programmes within Gardens and Estates, Visitor Services, Information Systems and Retail. These can be from 12 months up to 3 years of employment at a world famous heritage site.

We are able to offer limited work experience placements at both the Tower of London and Hampton Court Palace.
These opportunities are focused around students from local community schools and particularly from underrepresented groups.
Historic Royal Palaces is an equal opportunities employer and we particularly welcome black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) applicants as we consider these groups are currently under represented both within the heritage and cultural sector and within our own organisation.
