Based in Hampshire, the John Edgar Trust is a charity dedicated to enabling people to achieve their management potential in the farming and rural enterprise sector in southern England. This three-week residential course in rural business management, is organised and delivered by the Royal Agricultural University on the Trust’s behalf. The course is biennial and with only a small number of places available, it provides a unique opportunity for exceptional participants.
The objective of this course is to develop an individual’s skills and abilities, allowing them to become a positive and powerful asset to their business and the industry as a whole. We are looking for interviewees who are most likely to benefit significantly from this course - not only from the programmed events but also from the promise of a mutually constructive, shared learning experience with other like-minded individuals. The selection panel will seek to identify applicants who are already established in a career in agriculture or rural-based business in southern England, and are in or about to take up, a management position in which key decision-making skills are essential.
N.B. The John Edgar Trust provides generous funding towards the total course fee - an enabling and empowering offer for younger people in the rural sector.
