Regional outreach programme
Would you like to discuss an outdoor educational event for your school? Please get in touch. We'd love to work with you!
The CLS Pathways to Rural Work Outreach Programme provides a diverse range of Countryside day events that support learning in the rural environment. These events vary from school careers days, hands on learning experiences and classroom speakers to facilitating placements across all aspects of rural life, helping with transition from school to further education and work. Providing information and training for educators to help improve rural knowledge and increase confidence to deliver rural issues is also a key aspect of this programme.
The programme is designed to deliver progressive opportunities throughout a young persons late primary and secondary schooling based around the creation of partnership clusters within a geographical region. Cluster hubs may be a rural estate, residential facility, college or outdoor centre depending on the current structure within the region. Cluster partners around this hub can be any organisation, centre or facility that has an interest in education in the rural environment from Recreation adventure to land management or conservation.
This initiative works hand in hand with the P2RW Residential programme where pupils who wish to follow on from day events and learn more about the countryside, training and career opportunities can engage for a longer period and begin their path into an further education and an outdoor career.
