Looking for a way to build your leadership capabilities in preparation for further involvement with the industry, and your community? The Emerging Dairy Leaders Program (EDLP) could be the perfect opportunity for you.
The recently announced EDLP provides an outstanding opportunity for potential and current leaders across the sector to build their leadership skills and
capacity to contribute to development of the Australian dairy community.
Australian Dairy Farmers and Dairy Australia have established the program to invest in the development of the industry’s people by further expanding on
existing leadership programs available.
The program will run over the course of a year, commencing April 26 and concluding April 2017 in Adelaide. The aim of the EDLP is to help emerging leaders
to better understand themselves and others and therefore how to improve their communication skills and teamwork.
The program will feature a variety of learning and networking opportunities—including exposure to leaders and experts as well as challenging assignments.
This provides a rich development experience with long-lasting practical outcomes for participants and the community.
Participants in the program will earn a Diploma of Agribusiness Management from the National Centre for Dairy Education/TAFESA using a variety of learning
tools such as online self-paced study, webinars, peer discussion, workplace and mentor discussions. The EDLP participants will also be eligible to
take part in the Developing Dairy Leaders Program afterward if interested.
All costs associated with education enrollment, travel, accommodation and meals while away from home will be covered by the program.
