Is there any interest in this kind of workshop from producers elsewhere in the world?

Trout in the Classroom gives students hands-on experience

Trout in the Classroom gives students hands-on experience | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it

Trout in the Classroom projects got their start in this area, quite appropriately, because of fish.  The program is now rippling out, so hundreds of middle and high school students each year learn more about fish, streams, stream ecology and how to protect the water.

Good example of introducing fish culture to school students as part of a wider learning agenda.

The Rising Cost of Not Going to College

The Rising Cost of Not Going to College | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it

For those who question the value of college in this era of soaring student debt and high unemployment, the attitudes and experiences of today’s young adults—members of the so-called Millennial generation—provide a compelling answer. 

 

On virtually every measure of economic well-being and career attainment—from personal earnings to job satisfaction to the share employed full time—young college graduates are outperforming their peers with less education. And when today’s young adults are compared with previous generations, the disparity in economic outcomes between college graduates and those with a high school diploma or less formal schooling has never been greater in the modern era."

John Bostock's insight:

This study is from the USA, but suggests the qualification bar for accessing better paid employment is by and large going up. (Thanks to Sonia for passing this on...)
