Cultivating Leaders Programme 2019 – Applications Now Open

There is a need and desire from young people, industry and employers for further leadership and business skills so with this in mind SAYFC is pleased to deliver Cultivating Leaders.

Scottish Agriculture and industry is at a very exciting stage. This programme will allow us to invest in you, our future farmers and leaders by armouring and preparing you with as many skills and tools as possible. This will help to give you and your businesses a fair footing in an ever more competitive, volatile and sometimes aggressive market place.


Leadership – what is it and have you the qualities?

Vision & goals – where do you want to be and where are you now?

Succession – Are you in the position to be able to make the decisions that you need to make, have you a difficult conversation to have?

Business – Cash flows, accounts, budgets, understanding the market place

Practical – Actually filling out a farm business tenancy application – completing a bank loan application – drawing up a business plan to present to partners and the bank manager

Conclusion – Are you a leader?

Farm/Industry Visit – the group will attend a mixture of farm visits where they will see “leadership” in action.
