What our clients say about us.

"My students have just returned from a four week work experience period in Ireland through Equipeople.Myself and some colleagues went to Ireland earlier in the year to meet the staff of Equipeople and visit some hosts and students who were already there. I visited sixteen placements during my trip and was impressed with both the families and how settled and content the students were. As a result, we sent a group of 24 students to Ireland in early September. They were very happy with the experience, with only one or two having minor problems. The problems, which invariably will happen, where handled quickly and efficiently by the staff of Equipeople and I would have no hesitation in highly recommending the Equipeople work experience programme to schools"-Katrin Bladh Petersson, English Teacher, Inglestad Gymnasiet, Sweden

"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. From 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 offers 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 experience they are going through. The quality of the program and service is superb. "-Meritxell Morera, Managing Director, SABATICA, Spain.

"I have worked with Equipeople for many years and have visited them a number of times and seen first hand the great service that they provide. I have met so many of Equipeople's warm and friendly hosts and
have drank a lot of tea at various kitchen tables. I have met trainees from all over Europe who are loving the experience that is the Equipeople programme. As an English teacher, I have seen the benefit that some time spent immersed in the Irish culture and English language can have for a young person."-Francois Luyat. English Teacher. Neufchâtel-en-Bray, France

"We have worked with Equipeople for a number of years and have always found them to be reliable, honest and provide an excellent service to our applicants. I thoroughly recommend them and hopefully we will continue to send young Dutch people to Irish farming families for many years to come."-Marlous Mens, Director. Stichting Uitwisseling. The Netherlands.

"Over the last few years my organisation Agroverde, has sent a lot of young Swiss people to Ireland through the Equipeople programme. I know that Equipeople will place them with a caring Irish family who will understand what my applicant is looking for and why they are travelling to Ireland. Equipeople gives a great service both to the trainee and to us as a partner organisation. I am happy to work with Equipeople and I know that they will always respond to us quickly and efficiently allowing us to give our clients a great service in return." -Hans-Peter Brandenburger, Director, Agroverde, Switzerland.
