WiSA Women Returners Programme

COMING SOON: the return of the WiSA Women Returners Programme!

WiSA Women Returners Programme

Helping women into aquaculture

For the second time running, Women in Scottish Aquaculture (WiSA) is offering a comprehensive programme to help women living in rural areas and not currently in employment to get back to work.

The Women Returners Programme is funded by the Scottish Government and administered by Skills Development Scotland.

"The best part of the programme has been getting a sense of belonging in the world of work again."

Women take career breaks for many reasons – including raising children or other caring responsibilities – and can find different barriers to returning, such as a lack of suitable childcare or a need to improve interview skills or confidence.

At some point, it will be the right time to return to work, and whether you previously worked in aquaculture or not, WiSA is here to provide support.

The last WiSA Women Returners Programme was a great success – watch this short video to find out more:

The programme will take place in the first quarter of 2022, and we will publish all the details shortly. In the meantime, if you are potentially interested in taking part, please get in touch with WiSA Secretary Mary Fraser.
