The Peggy Guggenheim Collection runs a work experience program at the museum, which allows students attending Italian high schools in the Veneto Region to gain first-hand knowledge and experience of a cultural institution.
The Peggy Guggenheim Collection’s Work Experience Program (PCTO) allows Italian high school students to gain first-hand experience of working in an international museum, including interacting directly with the public and discovering the daily routines and tasks of the various staff members.
To participate in the program, teachers must collect their students’ motivational letters, in which they explain their reason for applying. Applications must to be submitted via email to email@example.com between January 10 and February 10, 2023, and including "Candidatura per PCTO" plus the name of the school as the email's subject. Each school can send a maximum of 15 applications. The motivational letters should highlight the interests, skills, knowledge, and motivations of the applicant, and will be examined by the museum’s Education Department.
The teachers of the selected candidates will be contacted by phone or email before February 28, 2023. Once the candidates have been selected, the Peggy Guggenheim Collection will organize the timing and activities of the internship with their teachers. The program will take place between March 1 and July 31, 2023.
