Practical training at the Kumu Art Museum this summer
You’re a student, you’re interested in art and you’re looking for a museum for practical training. Great! We would love to have you as a visitor coordinator!
Practical training at the Kumu Art Museum consists of two parts: training and practical work as a visitor coordinator. During the training, the museum’s experts talk about the exhibition programme, educational activities and public events at Kumu. You will also get a thorough overview of the museum building, its operations and services. For the big picture, you will visit the other branches of the Art Museum of Estonia: the Kadriorg Art Museum, Mikkel Museum, Niguliste Museum and Adamson-Eric Museum. When you have successfully completed the training, the best in the course get to put their acquired skills into practice as visitor coordinators in July and August. The main tasks of a visitor coordinator at Kumu are as follows: guiding museum visitors, giving instructions, introducing the opportunities the museum offers, helping to receive and serve tourist groups, and assisting with summer programmes and events. Summer practical training is a wonderful opportunity to expand your horizons and improve your communication skills among works of art!
The training takes place in Estonian.
However, we encourage young people who speak other languages as mother tongues to apply for the position and to practice their Estonian language skills.
Note! The number of available spots is limited. To apply, send your CV and a short motivational letter by 1 June 2017 at the latest to the e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org
Training: 30 hours (classes will take place on the following dates: 13 to 16 June; 20 to 21 June; 28 June)
Paid practical work as a visitor coordinator: at least 40 hours (in July and August)
