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. On the Trust’s behalf, the Royal Agricultural University organises and runs a three week residential course in rural business management on alternate years.
The next course begins in November 2016 and applications will be invited in May 2016 to apply for the 12 places available.
The objective of the course is to develop the individual’s skills and abilities to enable them to become a positive and powerful asset to their business and the industry as a whole.
On the basis of the unique opportunity that the course provides and the small number of places available, it is evident that the participants should be exceptional people who will benefit enormously not only from the programmed events, but also 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
- Applications: May 2016
- June 2016: Interviews with prospective Scholars
- November 2016: Course, Cirencester
- January 2016: Case Study, Hampshire
- March 2016: Case Study, Hampshire
