These internships run for 19 weeks, usually three days per week. Students who have graduated within the last three years are eligible to apply.

We have recruited our 2020-21 interns; please check this page in spring 2021 if you would like to apply in our next round.

 

WORK EXPERIENCE

Our work experience programme has been temporarily suspended due to the impact of Covid-19.

This will be reviewed in 2021 – please check for updates on our Barber Schools page.

 

VOLUNTEERING

Due to the impact of Covid-19 we have temporarily suspended our volunteering programme.

To protect the safety and wellbeing of our visitors and staff we are not currently recruiting any new volunteers.

We will review this in 2021 so please check back then for updates.

 

THE BARBER COLLECTIVE’S PEER PANEL

After changes we’ve had to make to our programme due to the impact of Covid-19, our Barber Collective youth programme will not run for the foreseeable future.

We hope to continue to bring you safe ways to learn and engage with our collection. Thank you for understanding and find our current work on our Learning page.
