Agricultural Work Experience in Ireland


Latest News

Autumn 2017
Summer is over!

Now the summer school holidays are over, everyone is back to school, studying hard. Teachers have been contacting us about sending students to Ireland this autumn, through the winter, and we even have some inquiries for next spring time.

We have a large number of students from Denmark coming to Irish dairy farms this October, so there are not many placements left available for that period.

However, if you need to send students abroad for their work experience, to gain a cultural insight to another country and to improve their English language skills, why not give us a call to discuss your needs. The new academic year has started, so let us help make it a successful and educational time for your students.

We look forward to hearing from you.

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.


Irelandís agricultural heritage and family ethos makes for unique work experience placements for those planning a career in equine, agriculture, veterinary, landscaping or agri-tourism fields.

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.
