Surrey Docks Farm offers work experience placements for students looking to gain practical animal care experience with the Livestock Team. To find out what this role will involve, please take a look at this download:

We offer short term farm work experience (students attend Monday-Friday for one or two weeks) and long term farm work experience (usually animal care/animal management college students who attend one or two days a week over several months). Both roles will be given a full farm induction, including health and safety procedures and are covered by the Farm’s insurance.

Please note, we are a small 2 acre farm in London and are not able to offer accommodation, travel or food expenses.

If you would like to book work experience at the Farm please follow these steps:

Short Term Placement:

Please email Gemma with the dates you are looking for and the school/college you attend. If your dates are available you will need to attend an induction before we confirm your placement. You can arrange this by emailing Gemma. Please note: We are now fully booked throughout March, April, July and August. Due to limited admin time we’re not able to hold a waiting list and┬ádon’t reserve weeks for schools or organisations, individuals must contact us directly.


Long Term Placement:

Please apply as a Livestock Volunteer using the online enquiry form and mention the college you attend.
