Course format

The Kellogg Tai Tokerau programme will retain the same format as the Kellogg Programme hosted at Lincoln University.

However, the first  and last residential phases will be hosted in Whangarei. The second phase remains in Wellington where participants will still meet political and industry leaders and understand how the sector comes together at a national level.

The benefits of doing a Kellogg in Tai Tokerau if you’re from the region:

  • Less travel and costs involved, and less time spent away from family and business commitments

  • A chance to connect and network with other participants both from within the Northland region and from outside the region

  • An opportunity to form regional teams to drive projects of strategic importance to your region

  • Exposure to industry and strategic leaders and influencers that will allow you to get a deep insight into how the community of rural practitioners comes together

  • Join a national alumni of nearly 1000 Kelloggers

Programme cost and available grants

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