Pathways to Rural Work (P2RW)



Pathways to Rural Work (P2RW) is our flagship initiative. It encompasses all areas of our work from introduction and awareness of the countryside progressing through ages and stages to participation opportunities, training and careers.


There are many organisations delivering quality education within their specific areas of the rural sector at the nursery and primary age groups, however the secondary age group is not so well catered for. This  initiative aims to bridge the gap and follow on from the good work delivered by these organisations. P2RW provides regional outreach and residential programmes that will raise awareness of rural careers, help engage young people with the sector and provide a stepping stone into further education and apprenticeships across all areas of rural life.

Regional Partnership Delivery

We are currently working in the Tayside area and have piloted the programme over the last two years with Scone estates, Strathmore and Glamis estates and a cluster of primary and secondary schools in the area, we are also building a new relationship with Snaigow estate.

We have a new Education Co-ordinator working in the NW of Scotland.


We are now building a new partnership with The Cairngorms National Park Authority with a view to delivering P2RW in the Cairngorms area.  

Our P2RW is currently developing its education delivery framework across the entirety of Scotland.
