Equipeople Irish Agricultural Work Experience

The Equipeople Irish Agricultural Work Experience Programme provides a supported cultural, educational and personal development experience for young Europeans from diverse agricultural backgrounds.
Students live as part of an Irish rural family and improve their English language skills at the same time.

Placements are available in dairy farms, mixed farms, horses, agri-tourism, small animals, Home and Horse and Landscaping.

Carefully matched agricultural work placements to suit individuals

Our attention to detail means that students are well matched to carefully vetted host families and agricultural work experience placements. Some individuals thrive on a big commercial Irish farm whilst others benefit from a small family-run mixed farm. Other students again choose to provide family support or work in agri-tourism businesses.
Catering for both individual students or tailored school Groups, we are happy to welcome students for long-term placements of a minimum of three months and provide specific short-term work experience packages from one monthís duration for school groups. All students benefit from a complete support package that includes personal care and problem solving.
