Work Experience

The Wardrobe can provide opportunities for young people in full time education to gain an insight into the world of work and, more specifically, costume and theatre industries. We offer a limited number of work placements each year and aim to give students the best experience we can while they are with us. 

For GCSE and A-Level students we have introduced an intensive week-long course covering the basics of the whole of the costume industry. At the end of this week you should be able to achieve an Arts Award Bronze certificate, as we expect this excellent opportunity to be in high demand we request that your application comes via either your drama, art or textiles tutor. 

For those in higher or further education we can offer placements of a more flexible length and structure according to individual requirements but usually recommend 4-12 weeks to allow both us and you to get the best out of your time. 

Apply by email: sa.wardrobe@surreycc.gov.uk 

Work experience week: 
14th – 17th June 2022. 

We often receive high volumes of applications at once. For this reason, all applications will be replied to by the end of the Spring term unless we have fully booked the week sooner.  
Please bear with us!
