It's bringing people closer to a fascinating past.

It’s becoming part of something special. And it’s the satisfaction of presenting one of the world’s greatest art collections. This is what makes working for Royal Collection Trust so different.

Unique in both quality and diversity, the Royal Collection has a fascinating history, and our Learning Section is responsible for sharing its stories with the broadest possible audience in ways that engage, surprise and inspire.

Joining our enthusiastic team, you'll coordinate the delivery of our innovative Schools programme at the Palace of Holyroodhouse.

You’ll organise learning opportunities for partner schools using a variety of different activities to cater for different groups and learning aims. You’ll focus on offering a variety of learning opportunities from small learning sessions to short talks for large groups.

Supporting the Learning Manager, you’ll help research and develop our core school sessions programme, as well as liaising with and training facilitators, whilst helping to ensure all content is up-to-date and of the highest quality.

You'll also produce promotional material including content for our website and social media channels, taking every opportunity to enhance the profile and range of our families learning offer.

And in everything you do, you'll seek new ways to bring the splendour of the Royal Collection alive.

With previous experience of delivering successful learning programmes, ideally within a museum, gallery or heritage environment, and a desire to grow your skills further, you're exactly who we're looking for.

With your creativity and innovative approach, you're able to develop immersive learning programmes and resources for school learners.

As an excellent communicator, you enjoy engaging with a range of people and are able to build collaborative working relationships with external partners and internal colleagues alike.

What's more, you're a real team player, and can work flexibly in order to support your colleagues.

It's a fast paced environment, so you'll need to be well organised and able to prioritise well in order to meet tight deadlines.

Above all, you have a passion for imparting and making specialist knowledge accessible to different levels of school ages and learning styles.

This is your opportunity to use your ability to inspire curiosity and your enthusiasm to deliver the exceptional.
