Tate Britain’s Curatorial Department is responsible for developing a dynamic programme of changing displays and exhibitions to reflect, promote and embody Tate Britain’s role as the world centre for the study and enjoyment of British art from 1500 to the present day.

Tate is offering a unique and exciting apprenticeship opportunity within our Curatorial Department, Tate Britain. You will play a key role in the Curatorial Department, carrying out a range of activities to support the Curatorial team. Whether you are acting as a first point of contact for enquiries, financial processing, and making travel bookings for the team, your days will be busy and interesting. You will undertake numerous administrative tasks, particularly working with budgets and financial software. You will spend 20% of your total time completing off-the-job training as part of your Level 3 Business Administrator apprenticeship.

Government rules for all levy-funded apprenticeships at Level 3 and above state that an apprentice must achieve a Level 2 certificate in English and Maths (GCSE grade 9 to 4 or A* to C) before the apprentice takes their final apprenticeship assessment, known as the ‘end-point assessment.’ As part of the enrolment process for your apprenticeship, you will need to participate in an online assessment provided by the apprenticeship training provider, which will identify which level of English and Maths you currently function at. If you have no prior GCSE or Functional Skills certificates of the required grades/ levels, and you score below a Level 2 in your initial assessment, your training provider will support you to achieve a Level 2 before the end of your apprenticeship and the learning for this will be incorporated in your overall training.

This position is offered on a fixed-term position for 18 months.
