Regional Representatives

Assisting the Trustees with furthering the aims of the NGO Educational Trust are a number of Regional Representatives. These volunteers provide advice and guidance to schools on what can be learnt from visiting estates and farms and advise estates on how best they can interact with the schools to create an exciting and safe learning environment.
