Selection Process

Step One

Participants for each course are carefully selected to ensure a mix of industry sectors, gender, age, geographic location and leadership experience to maximise the ‘melting pot’ of participants.

Step Two

Referees will be contacted in some cases to gain more understanding of motivation and fit for the programme.

Step Three

Successful applicants are advised of the outcome of their application at least two months prior to the start date of the programme applied for. On offer of place, acceptance will have to be received within 5 – 7 days to confirm place.

Unsuccessful
Applicants

Unsuccessful candidates will be notified after the offers have been made to successful applicants and all places are filled i.e. 5-7 days after offers have been made.

Unsuccessful applicants who meet the entry criteria are recommended to reapply for a position on the next scheduled/preferred course and are usually given first consideration. 

Non acceptance of a place on the course applied for does not mean the individual is unsuitable or less suitable but may be due to the mix of applicants and number of applicants from the same sector.

Programme Costs

The six-month full course fee is $4,900 plus GST. 

The programme is kept to a minimum cost through the generous support of our industry partners who are investing in leadership development across the agri-food sector.

Rural Leaders are now registered with the NZTE business Capability Scheme. What does this mean if you’re applying for Kellogg? You may be eligible to receive funding assistance up to 50% of the Kellogg course fee.
