The Courier & Advertiser (Angus and The Mearns Edition) - - NEWS -

A Princes Trust ini­tia­tive took place at Glamis Cas­tle yes­ter­day with Coun­try­side Learn­ing Scot­land (CLS).

As part of its Path­ways to Ru­ral Work pro­gramme, and in part­ner­ship with the Prince’s Trust Scot­land, CLS pro­vided an ed­u­ca­tional op­por­tu­nity for pupils from the Dundee area while pro­vid­ing an in­sight into a di­verse range of ru­ral in­dus­tries in­clud­ing gar­den­ing and hor­ti­cul­ture, agri­cul­ture, forestry and re­new­able en­ergy.

They were also joined by rep­re­sen­ta­tives from Scot­land’s Ru­ral Col­lege which of­fered ad­vice on land-based cour­ses. CLS projects aid the tran­si­tion from school to work in rais­ing the aware­ness of ru­ral train­ing, qual­i­fi­ca­tion and ca­reer op­por­tu­ni­ties.

Pic­tured hold­ing fer­rets are gamekeper Ben Stevens and Glamis head game­keeper Adam Smith with the pupils and teach­ers who took part look on.
