Export Academy

Export Academy

The UK Export Academy is a free training programme for UK businesses looking to grow their international sales. Brought to you by expert speakers, these export workshops are delivered through a hybrid of online and face-to-face learning. 

The UK Export Academy is delivered in three stages depending on your skill level. 


This is a step-by-step guide to becoming an exporter. The foundation modules will build your knowledge and confidence if you’re relatively new to selling internationally or interested in learning about how to start. You will leave the foundation course with an export action plan tailored to your business.  


Once you have a good understanding of the basics, these masterclasses will broaden your knowledge in areas such as sales skills, website internationalisation, eCommerce, managing overseas partners, and more. This is where you’ll learn about sector-specific challenges, and gain insight into the different markets overseas. 


It’s time to put your knowledge into practice. Discover how you can use DIT’s sector teams and overseas networks to access in-market opportunities, including the benefits of new free trade agreements. Find out how you can join like-minded businesses on trade missions and attend international exhibitions all over the world. 

When you sign up you join a cohort of like-minded professionals, eager to discuss the ins and outs of the export world. The free training will help you sell internationally, grow your business overseas and overcome some of the common challenges that businesses face.
