Department for International Trade: Export Academy
Department for International Trade (DIT) has launched Export Academy to give small and micro-sized businesses the know-how to sell to customers around the world with confidence.
Export Academy is aimed at a wide range of businesses – they could be selling children’s clothes to Spain online, or providing PR services to a new client in the US. Whether a business wants to start exporting, or is aiming to enter new markets, the programme aims to help overcome many of the common challenges that small businesses can face.
This pilot programme is designed for owners and senior managers of businesses. To qualify businesses must:
- have a turnover of up to £500,000
- be located in the Midlands, North of England or South West of England
Due to the pandemic, the Export Academy will temporarily be delivered online, and will feature educational events, independent learning, networking and group mentoring. Businesses will leave the course with a completed export action plan that could help take their business to international customers.
