An apprenticeship behind the scenes at the museum

Royal Pavilion & Brighton Museums

Rosie O'connorMuseum folk can be quite a daunting bunch with their degrees and doctorates about art, history and design.  The idea of having a career in a museum can seem out of reach for many.

So it’s been refreshing to bump into Rosie O’Connor a few times as I’ve been wandering through the museums.

Always friendly and keen to help, Rosie is on an apprenticeship with the Royal Pavilion & Museums, learning all about how a museum works behind-the-scenes.

Rosie, 21 originally from Gloucestershire had been working for a small charity in Brighton when she saw the apprenticeship role advertised. She is now into her second year.

‘I got a place at university but decided not to go,’ says Rosie. ‘It was the last year before the fees went up and it felt like a big yes or no. I decided no and moved to Brighton, where my boyfriend was.

About Paul Champion

Some have called me a leader, and a entrepreneur, they say I have integrity, presence and skills to ensure continuous improvement and success in whatever challenges I face. They also tell me that I am positive, resilient and motivating. I say, I'm just a normaI guy from Gateshead in the North of England, who started as an apprentice engineer. I have been in the right place at the right time and in the wrong place at the wrong time! I have successfully initiated and led complex organizations and situations to completion and success, and I have been in some jobs where success seemed untouchable. Mainly though, I have tried to learn everyday, help people to progress and learn the skills they need to be successful. I have had the privilege of working with some great people locally across the UK and more recently internationally in Asia, Europe and now USA, where I am lucky enough to work for where I am head of 3aaa USA. This website is just me having an outlet to talk about all those thoughts, ideas and things I learn that pass through my head every day when I face the challenge of doing business. I will also rant on about how great apprenticeships are, and how you can help change peoples lives through them. After all thats how I got to do the great things that I have done, and also I am still an apprentice everyday! All I ask is that if you find it interesting then leave a comment and share what you read. THANK YOU.
