Countryside Skills on World Youth Skills Day from Earth Trust

In celebration of #WorldYouthSkillsDay today, Earth Trust tells us about their education programme. Now, as lockdown measures ease, they’re looking at how to restart activities with children and young people, ensuring young people can learn new skills, gain experience of the outdoors and learn how to care for it. Experiential learning and vocational skills development in the natural world is a key part of equipping young people with skills for entrepreneurship and employment. The Countryside Skills course offers experience and qualifications to pupils who can find the traditional academic environment challenging. It empowers young people to make positive choices for themselves through practical, hands-on outdoor activities.
