TY Work Experience

Wicklow Mountains National Park receives many requests for transition year work experience each year. Most of these cannot be facilitated due to the drain on staff resources. However, for one set week each year, we take on four transition year work experience students. We cannot, unfortunately, facilitate TY work experience students outside of this week.


Wicklow Mountains National Park TY Week 2023

Dates: Monday 3rd to Friday 7th April 2023

Booking: If TY students are interested in putting their name on a list please email us (wickloweducationcentre@npws.gov.ie) with:

  • Your name
  • Contact details for a parent or responsible adult (telephone number & email address)
  • Name of school

Places shall be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

Programme: The students will spend time with our Conservation Rangers, our Education Team, and our Maintenance Team getting an overview of how the National park is managed.

Students will need to get themselves to our Park Headquarters near Laragh for 9:30a.m. each morning, and be collected from there at 5p.m. each afternoon.

Students need to be dressed for all weathers, and to have suitable footwear for off-track activities (preferably hiking boots or trail shoes). Students need to bring a packed lunch each day.

Please be aware that we only take 4 students per year, and only on one week.

The dates are set by us, and are not changeable.
