The project is looking for new ways to increase diversity within the National Trust and looking for people that will really benefit from this scheme. This programme is open to all, but it is all about breaking down the barriers to enabling people to succeed. We’d therefore particularly like to hear from people if they have a disability, a lack of formal qualifications, have been long-term unemployed or are from an under-represented ethnic minority group.
The Passport to your Future programme is looking for people with a passion for the work the National Trust does to come and train with us in some of our breath-taking places. Trainees don’t need qualifications or work experience, the National Trust is just looking for someone with a real love for the great historic houses and collections, who’ll be able to say how they’ll benefit from the programme, what it means to them and how it will help them succeed.
The trainees will be paid and will follow a structured training course, which hopefully will act as a stepping stone for a further career in heritage spaces.
The locations for the next intake of trainees are:
• Ham House, Richmond
• Clandon Park and Hatchlands Park, Surrey
• The Vyne, Hampshire
• Lyme Park, Cheshire
• Arlington Court, Devon
• Dyrham Park, Gloucestershire
• Clumber Park, Mr Straw’s House and The Workhouse, Nottinghamshire
