MorePerformance programme gains Royal Agricultural College endorsement

MorePeople's leadership and development programme has successfully gained accreditation from the Royal Agricultural College (RAC) in Cirencester.

Students who successfully complete the MorePerformance programme will now be eligible to receive a graduate certificate in leadership from the college.

The scheme, which has been running for six years and is endorsed by Tesco, has been accredited with the support of the Rural Employer Engagement Development Network (REEDNet) Scheme.

REEDNet is a Harper Adams University College-led collaborative project with the RAC. It aims to develop and expand the training opportunities available for rural businesses.

Guy Moreton, director of MorePeople, a recruitment & HR practice for the fresh produce, fresh food, horticulture and garden and leisure sector, said: "Accreditation of our leadership programme by the RAC is a ringing endorsement of all the hard work put in by Jan Khan and the MorePerformance team.

"We are delighted to be one of the first external partners that the RAC has accredited in this way and it's fantastic that we have been recognised as delivering university-level teaching."

REEDNet business development manager Marianne Readman said: "The RAC is pleased to recognise the commitment of MorePerformance in supporting the professional development of talented managers and future leaders within the fresh produce and fresh food sectors.

"The support from the big retailers and companies are indicative of the high regard for the content and delivery of this programme and the RAC is happy to endorse it."

The next fully accredited programme starts in January and runs over 12 sessions until July 2011. For further details, email Jan Khan at or call 01780 480530.
