A programme for Women in Agriculture


Applications now open!


Be Your Best Self

The Be Your Best Self personal development programme for Women in Agriculture is a Scottish Government funded course and is an expansion of a pilot programme run in 2020. It is an integral part of the Scottish Government’s vision to make Scottish agriculture a fairer, more inclusive industry, where farm succession is not determined by gender, training is accessible to everyone, and more women take on senior roles in agricultural organisations.

Be Your Best Self aims to support women living or working in agriculture in Scotland to build their confidence, enhance their skills, and develop their leadership abilities.
