New course from Concordia

New training programme for Managers

Concordia has introduced a new training programme starting in early November aimed at middle managers in the land based sector.

In conjunction with Plumpton College, Concordia is offering Management and Leadership Training (MALT) for busy managers who want the knowledge and skills for a successful career in 21st century farming.

MALT is a level 5 qualification validated by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI).  Managers on the course will study Leadership, Marketing, Finance, Resource Management, Recruitment and Selection, Stakeholder Expectations and Decision Making

The course is delivered over a period of 15 months and attendance at college is divided into five separate residential blocks totalling 18 days, to minimise disruption to the working routine. Between the blocks of study, work based assignments are completed.

Concordia Chief Executive, Rob Orme, says, ‘We are aiming to a the clear need in the sector for management level training targeted fairly and squarely at the land based sector. Our new course is for people already in middle management positions who want to further develop their skills. The assignments are focussed on the individual student’s workplace enhancing the relevance for employers.’

Concordia is expecting interest from managers who are established in their role but may not have undertaken formal training for some time as well as people who have completed Concordia’s other management courses.

Concordia already offers its Management and Supervisory Training Programme (MAST). This is a Level 3 course aimed at supervisors and team leaders in their first management or supervisory positions.

Applicants or employers should telephone or e-mail Amy Wood, Concordia Education and Training Manager on 07808 888525 or for more information about the MALT programme. Information is also available at
