Essex Chambers of Commerce are thrilled to announce the launch of our new Trade Expert Training Academy. This milestone marks a significant leap forward in our commitment to fostering global excellence and empowering our businesses to trade internationally. The Academy offers businesses a passport for a successful international trade journey.

The Trade Expert Training Academy aims to enhance business development by providing a training and education program. Our Academy brings together industry experts Export Unlocked, a leading provider in export & import support, to offer a cutting-edge curriculum that creates a dynamic learning experience.

The Academy offers a wide range of courses ensuring that businesses can upskill their staff and stay compliant. In addition to individual courses, the Academy offers endorsed Level 4 Qualifications – the Award, Certificate or Diploma, ideal for individuals to validate their expertise and enhance their professional credentials.

Commenting on the launch of the Trade Expert Training Academy, Denise Rossiter, CEO of Essex Chambers of Commerce said:

“I am delighted to be working in conjunction with Export Unlocked to bring the Trade Expert Training Academy to Essex. Our International Trade Department has decades of experience in supporting and training businesses, and I am thrilled to be able to offer this next level of education to our members and customers.

In a subject where continuous learning is imperative for success, we understand that investing in the upskilling of staff is not just an investment in the individuals but also a strategic move to secure your businesses international future.”

Richard Bartlett, Founder and Director of Export Unlocked added:

“We are very excited to be launching this new International Education Program with the Essex Chambers.

“We believe since the UK left the EU, International Trade has become a lot more complex. This program has been designed around all areas of International Trade, from beginners to seasoned professionals, to make it a simpler process.

We have listened to the market and realised some people only wish to attend a few courses to enhance their knowledge, so we have made the program totally flexible. Delegates who sign up to the full programme can obtain a fully endorsed Diploma.”

To celebrate the launch of the Trade Expert Training Academy, Essex Chambers of Commerce and Essex County Council are taking practical steps by offering funding to help you invest in your most valuable asset – your staff. The funding is available to Chamber Members who wish to upskill their employees with a Level 4 Certificate or Diploma Qualification.
