Women in Agriculture Practical Training Fund

We want more women in agriculture to have opportunities to develop their skills and talents. As well as supporting our Fair Work agenda, ensuring the sector is accessible to women will help to ensure the long-term sustainability and resilience of Scotland’s rural economy.’ (extract from Programme for Government (2019-20).

One of the key findings of research into women in farming and the agriculture sector was that there is a clear need for more access to, and uptake of, vocational, practical training for women entering the sector.

The Scottish Government's Women in Agriculture Practical Training Fund offers support to women resident in Scotland who are either already working in agriculture* or studying it full-time or part-time, or who are keen to start work in this area and who are able to demonstrate how a training course will support the development of their business or employment options.
