The preparatory period aims to

  • explore workshop participants’ thoughts, ideas, understanding
  • assemble themes
  • consider the manner & timing in which, during the project, they are to be explored.

Themes include

  • Initiative
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Management issues
  • Ownership
  • Learning organisation
  • Volunteers
  • Educational Techniques

The Workshop will provide encounters with examples of entrepreneurship:

  • How does a rural community survive?
  • What initiatives are necessary?
  • What skills and experience are required & available?

Colleagues on a previous Pathways’ workshop, working independently on a theme of enterprise, economy & culture,  produced a ‘snapshot report’ based on observations made during an investigative walk round the town.

The report (click here to view report-in-pictures) was, with other material presented to the Mayor and Town Council

 Some specific information regarding the Workshop

There is a wonderful YouTube presentation of one of their most popular songs – which refers to an error made on an EU map in 2004, omitting Wales & resulting in Bishop’s Castle becoming a seaside town.
