If the thought of heading into school and talking to school pupils about the industry is a daunting prospect, we are here to support and answer any questions you may have.
Should you be a farmer, or someone who knows the agri or rural industries, then you have valuable food, farming and countryside knowledge that assist and complement teaching delivered across Scotland within Curriculum for Excellence.
If you could help children understand where their food comes from, if you are passionate about the Scottish Countryside and keen to raise awareness of Scottish Rural issues then RHET needs you!
We can offer you the following support:
There is no expectation on the number of classes you could talk to; one class per year would make a huge difference.
We are lucky to have speakers from small holdings to large estates, machinery dealers, grain merchants, young farmers and even lecturers and teachers.
There are no set criteria for a speaker, just a passion to share with others the knowledge you have. Classroom talks take place all year round and are available across Scotland for all pupils from nursery to high school, ages 3-18.
RHET's work could not continue without the generous time donated by our hundreds of volunteers who help us with farm visits, classroom talks, estate days, running area committees, growing projects, taking tractors into schools and the Royal Highland Show, to name but a few.
All we ask for is a little of your time...
