Talks on farming programmes

Anyone interested in finding out more about the Nuffield farming scholarship programme or the Kellogg rural leadership programme will be able to do so tomorrow in Gore.

An alumni networking function is to be held at the Heartland Hotel Croyden, Gore, on August 22 from 5.30pm.

The event will be hosted by Rural Leaders, which is an organisation that oversees both programmes.

Programme co-ordinator Lisa Rogers said both the Kellogg and Nuffield alumni would be at the function and available to talk to anyone interested in finding out more.

''We are going to hear from recent Nuffield scholar Kate Scott about her insight and experience, and Nigel Woodhead, of Milton, who is a Kellogg graduate, will also talk.''

''Nuffield takes an intake a year while Kellogg runs two separate programmes, starting in January or June and is for developing people to take on leadership positions,'' Ms Rogers said.

''There are five Nuffield scholars a year and Kellogg takes up to 50 a year.

''It will be a great opportunity for people coming along. [They] can find out more about the programmes.

''There is no age limit with Nuffield and we find that the main age group for applicants are in their 20s to early 50s and it is much the same for Kellogg.''
