Nurture Dogs is currently able to offer placements for students on occupational therapy programmes. This fits in with the current university’s curriculum for MSC and BSE courses. This setting is non-traditional at present and we have a qualified occupational therapist that regularly teaches in the University of Essex. Over the past 3 years this has proved very successful, students coming from the University of Essex, London Southbank University and Germany. We work with a very diverse group of clients from paediatrics, dementia care, mental health and physical disabilities. Placements can be tailored to individual students learning needs by collaborating with them and their university. Placements can include working with the dogs and or the farm.

This has proved a very popular venue and early booking is advised. Please send us a placement office form or contact us for more information.
