Surrey Docks Farm offers work experience placements for students looking to gain practical animal care experience with the Livestock Team.
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 the below steps.
Short Term Placement
Please complete the enquiry form below with the dates you are interested in and the school/college you attend. If your dates are available we’ll get in touch to confirm and also arrange a date for an induction, which is compulsory to attend before you start your placement.
Due to limited admin time we’re not able to hold a waiting list and don’t reserve weeks for schools or organisations, individuals must contact us directly.
Please note we’re now fully booked for the weeks commencing: 8th June, 29th June, 6th July, 13th July and 20th July 2020.
Long Term Placement
Please apply as a Livestock Volunteer using the online enquiry form and mention the college you attend.
