WORK EXPERIENCE PROGRAMMES

offered by the Educational Services of the Archaeological and Landscape Park of the Valley of the Temples

The main aim of the work experience programmes at the Park of the Valley of the Temples is to produce a video to submit to Archeo Ciak 7, the International Film Competition for archaeological films made by schools. The programme aims to accompany the pupils on an archaeological and technological journey, teaching them to look at historical monuments in a new way without losing sight of their context, history and charm. As well as creating the video, this project will enable students to use modern devices they already know and understand, introducing them to a topic that is somewhat “outside the norm” with the potential to captivate and engage them.

The 20-hour programme runs from Monday to Friday, is free of charge and must be booked in advance.

The programme includes a visit to the park, stories, photography and the video shoot, as well as editing and post-production, the first stages of creating the video to be presented for the Archeo Ciak 7 competition.
