Work experience for school students

Kew offers a number of horticultural work experience placements at Kew Gardens.

Work experience placements for 14-16 year olds (Key Stage 4 and AS/A2 level)

Kew offers a number of horticultural work experience placements to students from Richmond, Hounslow and Kingston borough schools only.

Students must demonstrate in their application an interest in and aptitude for pursuing a career in horticulture. All placements will be for two weeks and must take place between March and October.

How to apply

Kew’s placements are administered via the Richmond, Hounslow and Kingston Education Business Partnerships. Only children who attend schools in these three boroughs are entitled to apply. If you attend a school outside Richmond, Hounslow or Kingston you cannot apply.

Enquiries should be made direct to these Partnerships via your school.
