Export Academy

8 Dec 2020

The Export Academy from the Department for International Trade gives small and micro-businesses the tools and confidence to sell around the world.

Learning directly from experts in international trade, this free course will help businesses to grow their international sales, whether they are selling children’s clothes to Spain online, or providing PR services for a new client in the US.

The programme is for owners and senior managers of English SMEs with a turnover of up to £500,000, in the South West region.

Why has the Export Academy been developed?

New branding for iO Academy has inclusivity at its heart.

iO Academy is on a mission to help to address the gender imbalance in the tech industry, and give people the training they need for a career they’ll love.

We have tackled this head on in 2020, with a rebrand that speaks to our core values of inclusivity and accessibility. Working with Bristol-based creative agency, Fiasco Design, we’ve changed our name from Mayden Academy to iO Academy, and created a brand that reflects our ambitions of creating a more diverse and inclusive industry.
