Teaching urban pupils about life in the country
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.
