Training Workshops




From January 2019, the Chamber is adding to its extensive training portfolio by offering the British Chamber of Commerce Accredited Foundation Award in International Trade.

This training programme has been developed after demand from employers for a national skills experience for their staff, by developing a national solution to the exporting skills gap.
The qualification is offered as a family of short courses and equips businesses with a highly skilled workforce ready to take on international markets.  Developed in response to the Government’s focus on the need to grow the number of UK exporters, these courses provide invaluable skills for small and large companies alike.
Candidates achieving Pass or Merit in any of the course topics will receive a certificate in each area. Those who pass any six of the course topics will achieve a nationally recognised Foundation Award in International Trade.
Please note the following modules cover two topics each and therefore two assessments -Preferential Rules of Origin / Customs Procedures & Documentation and Letters of Credit / Methods of payment.
