Dear [insert name],

I am an A Level Arts student seeking two weeks work experience at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. The gallery has always been an inspiration for my work and I hope that gaining first hand experience will better equip me for a career in the industry.

Key skills & experience (CV appended)

– GCSE Art (A*), currently on track for a grade A at A-level

– Evidence of commitment and reliability through my role as Netball Captain for 4 years running

– Personal interest in the Art industry, evident through self-funded trips to Florence and Paris in order to see works first hand

Thank you in advance for taking the time to consider my application. Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any further questions.


Yours sincerely,
