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.

Call +353 (0)57 86 43 195 to find out more or drop an email to info@equipeoplework

We look forward to hearing from you.

About Equipeople agricultural work experience

irish_countryside.jpgEquipeople has been placing young Europeans in equine and agricultural work experience placements throughout Ireland for over 8 years through a network of over 400 host families who share their way of life with students that work on the farm as part of the family, while learning and experiencing the Irish way of life and its culture.

student_with_horse.jpgOn arrival in Ireland, our students receive a welcome pack with comprehensive information about Ireland and our agricultural industry. In this pack we give a comprehensive overview of Ireland's current agricultural climate and we also go into depth about each individual sector. Many of our students are required to do a report on farming in Ireland and our host farmilies help with the compilation of this.

Students are informed about our Agricultural Education Authority, Teagasc, and are encouraged to contact them for any further information that they need.

Our students go home with a comprehensive understanding of Irish farming and our agricultural way of life. We also expect that our host farmers will have learnt from the students both agriculturally and culturally.

"I have visited Equipeople's office in Ireland and was impressed by the professionalism and care that the staff put into every application that cross's their desk. students_with_donkey.jpgFrom the moment that they receive the application until they are organising transport back to the airport, every consideration is given to ensuring that the trainee has an enjoyable and beneficial time in Ireland. I am promoting the Equipeople programme in Spain because I am confident that Equipeople will look after my people and will efficiently deal with the occasional problem. The program Equipeople offer's is a great opportunity for any student willing to learn not only about agriculture but also the language and culture of the friendly and charming Ireland. It is important for anyone living abroad to feel there is someone to help if needed, even if it just a chat about the experiences they are going through. The quality of the program and service is superb. " Meritxell Morera, Managing Director, SABATICA, Spain.
