The Export Academy, from the Department for International Trade (DIT), gives small and micro-businesses the know-how to sell to customers around the world with confidence.
It’s 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, we’ll help them overcome many of the common challenges that small businesses can face.
The programme is designed for owners and senior managers of businesses with a turnover of up to £500,000 but may also be suitable if businesses are new to exporting and have a higher turnover.
Topics which are covered include:
- Preparing to do International Business
- Basic Export Procedures
- International Market Research
- Export Pricing and Distribution
- Customs Procedures
- Introduction to Incoterms® Rules
- Export Controls
- Getting Paid
- Selling Services Overseas
In addition to that there will also be exclusive master classes and industry related topics covered.
Businesses will leave the course with a completed export action plan that could help take their business to international customers.
