About the Organisation
Royal Highland Education Trust (RHET) aims to provide the opportunity for every young person and teacher in Scotland to learn about food and farming.
Farm Visits: The farm and working countryside can offer experiential learning opportunities, linked to Curriculum for Excellence outcomes, whilst enjoying fresh air and outdoor learning. Visits are free to pupils in primary and secondary education.
Class Talks: We are able to support learning in school through talks and hands on activities. We can provide classroom talks and in school cookery sessions. We also have specifically trained farmer speakers who will happily support projects on food and farming and the countryside within the classroom. This is useful if your class is unable to visit a farm or more usually to give your class some background to a proposed farm visit.
Teaching Resources: The RHET resource portal has a range of resources and links to support your food, farming and STEM delivery at all CfE levels as well as opportunities to link to DYW. There are presentations, handouts, activities and lots more to engage your learners all in one place.
Teacher CLPL Opportunities: We offer a range of professional learning activities for primary and secondary school teachers, including twilight sessions and the Good Food Champions Programme.
Local Food Cookery Sessions: We offer a range of hands-on cookery sessions linked to learning in school.
