Applications are now being accepted for the Women In Agriculture Practical Training Fund, funded by the Scottish Government. Look for the 'Women in Agriculture' badge on SkillSeeder for courses eligible for up to £500 of funding.
The Scottish Government is again supporting the Women in Agriculture Practical Training Fund, and applications are now being taken for 2022!
The Women in Agriculture Practical Training Fund has been established by Scottish Government to support the personal development of women, providing them with additional skills to progress their careers and employment opportunities in Scottish agriculture beyond their current role.
Courses eligible for funding can include: business skills; environmental and sustainability; health and safety; plants and animals; vehicles, machinery and equipment.
One of the key findings of research into women in farming and the agriculture sector was that there was a clear need for more access to, and uptake of, vocational, practical training for women across the industry.
In conjunction with the fund, SkillSeeder has worked with Lantra Scotland to create the SkillSeeder Women in Agriculture Badge, which makes it quick and easy for find an eligible training course!
