Work Experience and Placements

We offer volunteer opportunities for targeted groups, including school and college work experience in June and July, Duke of Edinburgh Award placements, Prince's Trust placements and corporate volunteering (CSR).

School and college work experience

We are currently unable to offer placements to work experience students within the house due to our extensive restoration project. We would still be delighted to host work experience students in our award-winning gardens during June and July and offer occupational placements with an emphasis on attaining working skills. The placements are suitable for year 10 and year 12 students who are in full-time secondary education.


Duke of Edinburgh

We are happy to host bronze and silver level students on placement completing the volunteer unit of the award.

Prince's Trust

We work in partnership with the Prince's Trust in Devon. If you would like to know more and are interested in a placement, please contact your Prince's Trust Manager to arrange a meeting.

Corporate Social Responsibility

Our corporate volunteering projects are bespoke and arranged on an individual basis. We would be happy to meet your organisation and discuss opportunities to work together on a project.  Please provide us with your organisation’s corporate social responsibility details and requirements.
