Be Your Best Self

We are delighted to announce that The People Portfolio will be delivering The Be Your Best Self personal development programme for women in agriculture on behalf of The Scottish Government.

This work is an expansion of the pilot programme run in 2020 and 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.

We are thrilled to be working as a part of a consortium with our friends from Mind & Mission, Leeway and Scene & Herd PR to provide an exciting and impactful programme which will run 10 times over the next 2 years.

Our first course is now underway but we are accepting applications for a range of courses throughout 2022. More details and the application form can be found here: Any questions can be emailed to
