What is the Excellence Academy?

Importing and exporting today is anything but usual. Clogged supply chains, the high cost of containerised transport, Brexit, Covid-19, sanctions and a raft of new trade regulations have created demand for a programme of professional-level training that provides a well-rounded and detailed level of vocational learning in international trade.

This program has one goal in mind: Your success

Our course leaders and guest experts are renowned industry professionals supported by a team of assessors who are qualified by the Training and Development Lead Body (TDLB). Our unrivalled support package includes structured, constructive feedback and ongoing support to help you achieve your full potential. Numbers are limited to 10 delegates to allow a more personal, individual learning experience. How to apply and other practical details

Joining the Academy is a great way to expand your knowledge, and build your confidence and expertise, without having to stick to an academic schedule. The programme is offered online and is comprised of 6 half-day modules, plus a series of virtual assessments that you can customise to maximise alignment with your own work situation and needs. The Award is accredited and regulated by British Chambers of Commerce, and is achieved by attending all 6 modules and completing assessments.
