The Institute of Export is able to deliver any course from the Training Programme on your own premises.  If you have between 6 and 12 staff members who would benefit from any of the courses and seminars in our Short Course Training Programme you will find this a very cost-effective option.

In addition, The Institute regularly designs courses on a bespoke basis to exact company or Trade Association requirements. Whatever your international training needs, the Institute will be pleased to help. The Institute has delivered In House Training to many large organisations both in the UK and abroad.

As well as being a cost effective option, The Institute’s In House Training:

  • Can help with team building through training.
  • Allows more time for specific questions focused on your business aspects.
  • Ensures that all relevant staff are trained to a consistently high level.
  • Is logistically better for participating staff, reducing time, travel and accommodation costs.
