John Edgar Trust - Management Development Scheme
The John Edgar Trust is a Hampshire based charity dedicated to helping people in southern England achieve their management potential within farming and rural enterprises. The Royal Agricultural University organises and runs a three week residential course in rural business management, on the Trust’s behalf. The course is biennial.
The next course begins in January 2019 and applications will be invited from February 2018 to apply for the 12 places available.
The objective of the course is to develop an individual’s skills and abilities, enabling them to become a positive and powerful asset to their business and the industry as a whole.
The course provides a unique opportunity with only a small number of places available. Participants should therefore be exceptional people who are most likely to benefit greatly from both the programmed events as well as the chance to share the experience with like-minded individuals and learn from each other. The selection panel will seek to identify individuals 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 position where they will be required to make management decisions.
This course covers:
- Managing Human Resources
- Business Practice, Taxation and Law
- Planning and Financial Resource Management
- Practical Case studies and Seminars
- Leadership theory
- Communication skills
- Media training
January - February 2019
