ZSL London Zoo and ZSL Whipsnade Zoo do not offer work experience placements on animal keeping sections. We recommend reaching out to similar collections. Details of these can be found on the links below.
ZSL London Zoo
ZSL London Zoo’s work experience programme is currently only offered to Year 10-12 students from targetted schools in the London boroughs of Camden and Westminster, and those who are members of our Education Access Scheme. As such we are not able to facilitate adhoc requests. We do however run regular career focussed courses, conferences and events throughout the year:
ZSL Whipsnade Zoo
ZSL Whipsnade Zoo are pleased to announce an exciting animal based course designed for 15-17 year olds who wish to become vets, vet nurses, zoo keepers or complete other animal related studies.
ZSL Whipsnade Zoo’s work experience programme is currently only offered to local schools who are members of the Whipsnade Zoo Education Access Scheme. As the programme is in its infancy, it is only run through schools due to the logistics necessary. Therefore will not be able to facilitate adhoc requests. We do run regular career focussed courses, conferences and events throughout the year.
