Become A Volunteer

The volunteer scheme at GSC enhances our visitors' experience and helps to deliver our mission. Our volunteers are fantastic members of the team and can benefit from training, networking, skill development, paid travel expenses and discounts, not to mention an experience that’s out of this world!
You can volunteer in our Customer Service, Science, Marketing, Finance, and HR departments. Some of our key volunteer roles include:
•    Visitor Studies Volunteer – helping gather feedback, and recording and analysing the data.
•    Birthday Party Volunteer – assisting with children’s birthday parties at weekends.
•    Science Mall Volunteer – assisting visitors in various areas of the science mall.

Looking for Work Experience?

We operate a popular and successful one-week work experience programme on scheduled dates throughout the school year. We work in partnership with Glasgow City Council local authority as well as trying to accommodate as many other self-found placements from schools in other local authority areas as we can. 

How to Book a Place

Schools in Glasgow Local Authority Only:

If the schedule below shows availability on your chosen date please contact your school to book a place on your behalf. They will book a place for you through the Online Work It programme and they will send us direct written confirmation of your place on the programme.

Self-found Placements (other local authorities):

If the schedule shows availability on your chosen date please complete an application form (available to download below) and send to stating your requested date for work experience. We will be in touch as soon as we can to confirm whether a place is still available and reserve it for you.

We regret that unfortunately we are unable to accommodate work experience placements on dates outwith the schedule.
