We offer work experience opportunities for students, with the following requirements:

Work experience students work with our Animal Attendants and should expect a unique insight into the every-day work they carry out including:

  • Handling techniques for various species including dogs, cats, snakes and chameleons.
  • Legislative requirements for various animals imported into the UK, notably how we enforce the Pet Travel Scheme.

College and university tours

We also offer a tour of our facility and talks for small groups of students studying related courses.
