Many education and training businesses in Yorkshire and the Humber are already realising the benefits of exporting and winning large-scale contracts and high-value opportunities – the number of education and training companies reporting export orders to EGS between 2016/17 and 2017/18 increased by just over threefold and the value nearly doubled. 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.
