How to Apply

Budding agricultural journalists and communications professionals are being urged to apply for a place on a unique training course designed to help them take an important first step in their careers.

The British Guild of Agricultural Journalists’ John Deere Training Course has been running for more than 30 years and has an extraordinary track record in helping journalists, public relations (PR) professionals and marketeers enter the industry.

Led by David Mascord, a renowned journalist and lecturer, and supported by a range of experienced guest speakers, successful applicants embark on the two-and-a-half-day course before being placed at a publication or PR agency for work experience.

All participants then submit a piece of work to compete for the overall John Deere Training Award which carries with it a £250 first prize and a complimentary ticket to the presentation ceremony at the BGAJ Harvest Lunch in London on 10 October. The runner-up also attends the event and is awarded £100.

There is no upper age limit for applications, but one of the course’s stated aims is to support young people with a genuine desire to pursue careers in agricultural communications. Practical experience of farming is not required.
