Can you point to a pivotal moment in your agricultural career? TMAF Farm Manager David Jones can. For him it was taking part in the training in farm management offered by the course supported by the John Edgar Trust. The search is on for the next group of participants and he extends an offer of help to interested applicants.
“In 2006 I completed the John Edgar Trust (JET) management course. It inspired me to get a new job and that’s when I applied for this job at TMAF and, delighted to have been selected, this is when I moved to Morley.
An in-depth residential course
The JET course is three weeks long and based at Cirencester and Stockbridge in Hampshire. Please see the John Edgar Trust Management Development Scheme flyer for more details.
The course is open to youngish agricultural professionals. It is aimed at assistant managers, agronomists, consultants, land agents, or professionals from any other rural business. It is ideally suited to someone who has had a formal education then worked in the industry for 5-10 years and now wants to take the next step. Most of the course cost is funded by JET. All you need is the time and commitment.
Successful candidates from East Anglia can get help with funding from The Morley Agricultural Foundation for the John Edgar Trust Management Development Scheme.”
