Personal Development Plan

Planning for the future…achieving your personal goals

The Farming Connect Personal Development Plan (PDP) is a fully funded service for all farmers and foresters registered with Farming Connect.


Completion of the PDP is mandatory for anyone wishing to submit an application for funding.

Once a PDP is created you cannot create another and will need to keep the plan regularly updated.


The Personal Development Plan will help you to:

  • identify your long term objectives and short term goals
  • consider your objectives in terms of a work/lifestyle balance
  • develop key skills or competencies
  • record current qualifications and skills
  • set out your personal development plan for the future
