The Royal Highland Education Trust (RHET) has a national network of volunteers available and willing to visit your classroom to share their many years of knowledge and experience of food, farming and the countryside.
Classroom speaker visits are free to schools. All our volunteers receive speaker training from RHET and come prepared with a kit full of props and samples to supplement their talk.
These talks fit many aspects of the Curriculum for Excellence, and are an exciting and efficient way of introducing a food, farming or countryside topic.
If a teacher has any specific experiences they wish the children to get from the talk, this can be indicated on the form and discussed with the Project Co-ordinator beforehand, in order that the talk can be tailored to suit.
To organise for a Classroom Speaker Talk, simply download the booking form, complete and return it by email.
Once we receive your completed form, it will be forwarded to your local RHET Project Co-ordinator, who will then be in contact to organise your talk.
Dairy Resource Kit
Thanks to DairyCo we have a fantastic new speaker resource on Dairy!
This has been compiled with a mulitude of materials funded by DairyCo and some additional items were kindly donated. Each of our Countryside Initiatives have one so that their classroom speakers can use the props to aid their talk on dairies and their products.

To request this, please note that you would like one (if available) on your booking form.
