Airfield Estate houses a wealth of opportunities for transition year students to get involved with food, farming and the land it comes from. Students will explore the nature trails with our education guides, meet the farmer and resident gardeners whilst getting their hands dirty and understanding where their food stories begin.
Beginners Agricultural Science
Aimed at helping transition year students without an agricultural background, or encouraging those who might be interested in taking it up as a leaving cert subject. We offer a change to meet our farmer and gardeners as well as giving the students an opportunity to walk, talk and get hands-on with the topics they will be learning about in the future, as well as understanding a little more about food production and animal husbandry.
TY Work Experience
We offer students a one-week block of work experience that will involve work in a number of areas across the estate including our restaurant, farm, gardens, education and facilities. We’re looking for students who like to work outdoors and who have an interest in nature, food, farming and gardening!
We have now taken our applications for the 2018/2019 school year. We'll reopen the programme for 2019/2020 in summer 2019. Keep an eye out on our social media for details.
