Work Experience

Work Experience at Glamorgan Archives

Work experience placements are normally undertaken by students and school pupils. Work experience gives you a valuable insight into a career in Archives and Archive Conservation.

We try to make placements as varied as possible involving:

  • cleaning and packaging records,
  • listing new collections,
  • digitisation,
  • work on our electronic catalogue, and
  • answering remote enquires.

All work is carried out under the direct supervision of a trained member of staff.


For students looking for experience prior to application for a postgraduate archive management course the opportunities offered meet the guidelines provided by FARMER – Forum for Archives and Records Management Education and Research.

If you are interested in a work experience placement please contact us for further information.
