The Centre offers a five day (Monday - Friday) work experience placement for school or college students during term time February - November.
It is not possible to undertake work experience at The Centre during school holidays.
Students should have an aptitude for a placement at a busy tourist attraction and they will have the opportunity to shadow staff in all areas.
We accept a maximum of two students per week, but not from the same school. The student will be at The Centre from 9.30 am - 4 pm each day and cannot be dropped off any earlier, nor can they access the site without car transport.
The Centre has been vetted, inspected and authorised by East Sussex County Council. If you wish to check any information with them, please contact via email:
If you are interested in a work experience placement at The Centre you must contact the Work Experience Co-ordinator at your school / college.
We can only deal with requests direct from your school / college and we will not discuss placement requests with parents / guardians.
This won't take long...
