Supported summer internships with Achievement Bute

The Mount Stuart Trust are working alongside Achievement Bute to train the next generation of rising stars.

The Trust are taking on a number of young adults from the local schools, who are interested in the history of Mount Stuart House.

Students enrolled on the programme can expect to learn fascinating facts about one of the foremost collections of artworks and artefacts in the UK.

Exploring the first house in Scotland to have electric light, its own telephone service, passenger lift and indoor heated swimming pool, all of which are still in working order today. Whilst working on the project, students will gain first-hand experience working alongside guides in a historic environment.

Head of collections, Charlotte Rostek, says: ‘With this programme, students will gain invaluable experience of working in a historic environment. They will learn how to research, develop, and share their knowledge- a group of skills that they will be able to use in a whole host of different scenarios in the future.’

The final challenge? The students will present a bespoke tour of Mount Stuart to their own family and friends.
