Women in Agriculture

We’re delighted to announce that our Women in Agriculture Practical Training Fund will open again shortly, thanks to an award of £100,000 from the Scottish Government.

Having supported more than 750 trainees since its launch last year, the fund has enabled women to benefit from courses in a range of areas, including tractor and trailer driving, sheepdog handling, lambing, cattle hoof trimming, and chainsaw use.

Administered by us on behalf of the Scottish Government, it aims to address inequality and provide more opportunities for women in Scottish agriculture, covering costs of up to £500 for practical training to support business or employment options.
