The Following requirements apply:
  • Work Experience in the DSPCA is carried out strictly on a block week basis, i.e. Monday to Friday, 8.45am to 4.30pm only. 
  • Unfortunately we cannot take students suffering from animal hair allergies as the placement requires working in confined spaces with multiple dogs and cats.
  • Students must be able to get to us as we are not on a bus route and the road is not recommended for walking.
  • Students must have an up to date anti tetanus vaccine.
  • Students must be insured by their school.
  • Students should show interest in the charity and we appreciate students who are Junior Members and give them first priority.

Please Note - We can not take on students doing one day a week.

 

The DSPCA, Ireland’s oldest and largest animal rescue shelter is delighted to be able to offer work experience placements to students in Secondary Schools as part of their Transition Year or LCA.

Due to our extensive programme, we can only accommodate students wishing to do at least one week’s work experience, i.e. Monday to Friday, and cannot offer placements to those wishing to carry out their An Gaisce service or to those students' wishing to do one day per week over a period of time.

This is due to the fact that we believe anything less than a week is of no benefit to either the student or the animals in our care.

As you can imagine, places at the shelter are limited, and we advise all students who are interested to apply as soon as possible if they wish to secure a placement during the academic year. We have found that many schools choose the same weeks, thus increasing demand.

Unfortunately we cannot take students suffering from animal hair allergies as the placement requires working in confined spaces with multiple dogs and cats.

All students must have an up to date anti tetanus vaccination and school insurance certification.

Please read our Work Experience Handout to find out what’s involved before you apply.

Please note - if you wish to do 2 weeks’ work placement you must book in for each week separately.

If you require any further information relating to our work experience programme, please email on education@dspca.ie
