The UK has a world-class education and training offering, a global reputation and a strong presence in international markets. The Department for International Trade launched a new International Education strategy in March 2019, with an ambition to increase the value of UK education exports to £35 billion per year, and to students hosted in the UK to 600,000 per year, both by 2030. In countries such as China and the UAE, the demand for Yorkshire education expertise, whether education technology, training, access to our universities or educational approaches, is very strong, alongside other international opportunities which we can support you to find.
We arrange a huge variety of events aimed at the education and training sector to support you and your business to gain valuable knowledge and experience on international trade. No matter what your experience level, we have the right support for your business.
We work with a number of clients within the education and training market, providing them with a range of support to help them succeed at selling overseas. We have worked with companies to capture their experiences so you can learn from their mistakes and their achievements.
There are thousands of opportunities to browse which are sourced by overseas trade professionals or posted by third-party providers. This DIT service gives you the possibility to connect with buyers from around the globe and match your offering with their demand.
