Learning short courses
There are events run by UKTI around the UK and most of these are free or a modest cost. Also, we have been working with banks such as RBS/NatWest and Barclays who are sponsoring our export training courses so individuals are getting some free places on our training courses. Some Chambers of Commerce also have moderately priced training as well
Some useful websites:

Within the South East – UKTI have a team of International Trade Advisers who are on hand to assist clients develop their business internationally and you do not pay for our time!
It may be that one of our programmes of formal assistance – either Passport to Export or Gateway to Global Growth would be applicable.
Passport brings companies 12 months assistance, a no cost residential course and some funding plus half price other training courses and then Gateway provides high level "executive training courses" provided through Cass Business uni. again free to progrtamme companies.
So in answer to your question what we provide goes beyond just providing courses and provides formal strategy for international sales development and indeed even hand holding into new countries .e.g. through our Trade Missions. If you would like to know more just respond or contact me and will set in motion contact with most appropriate Trade Adviser. Regards Stephen
