The award-winning Be Your Best Self personal development programme for Women in Agriculture 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 abilities.

The course contains a number of elements including:

  • Understanding and enhancing mental fitness
  • Building confidence and resilience
  • Getting to know your strengths and how to play to them
  • When and how best to work with others
  • Building a relevant network with likeminded women in agriculture

As the programme is fully funded by The Scottish Government it is free to attend.

The courses are run virtually over Zoom to allow participants from all over Scotland to take part and are delivered in bite sized modules of between 1.5 – 3.5 hours at a time.
