Education is vital to a productive, progressive society. The Scottish Rural Awards is mindful of the many forms which education may take, and aims to champion these at every possible opportunity. This category’s reach is not limited to formal education; vocational learning is of particular interest to the Scottish Rural Awards judges.
Who can enter?
The Education category welcomes entries relating to all styles and levels of both formal and informal education: schools, colleges and universities; youth clubs or groups; and employers who place a strong emphasis on vocational training through apprenticeships or other similar schemes.
What the judges are looking for:
The judges are looking for evidence that nominees have helped to develop and preserve skills for future generations in rural Scotland. The judges will be asking the following:
How has the nominee worked to provide opportunities and training for young people and adults?
Has the nominee used education to drive forward real, positive social change?
