We are looking for young people with an interest in the cultural heritage sector, a passion for leaning, and a love of photography, to join our second cohort of Skills for the Future digitisation trainees.

We have six places for young people, aged between 18 and 24, to join us for a paid 18 month traineeship.  You will learn to digitise our collections, gain an SQA accredited qualification, and most importantly, substantial workplace experience. Our trainees gain a Level 7 SQA Customised Award in Collections Digitisation, the credits gained from which can be used towards university entrance conditions. Expert members of staff from across the organisation, from curators to art handlers, photographers to digital media, provide hands on training that equip trainees with the broadest possible experience, helping to give increase job prospects upon graduation.

Recruitment of the second cohort of trainees will begin in Spring 2016 with a start date of September 2016.  We are looking for young people who will be 18 by the 1st September 2016.
