Prepare to export

Main Content

Fast-track your skills

Your company has performed well in the UK market, but to remain competitive and increase sales, you might need to look outside Scotland.  

Preparation is key to trading successfully overseas.

There are many things to consider before your company enters new markets and preparing properly can help you achieve the results you want.

Our Preparing to Export programme includes two courses tailored to different stages of export development – from novice to more experienced exporters.

How Karen Strickland, Technical Manager at Braehead Foods benefited from attending our introductory programme:  

The workshop was really good and I learned a lot from it. I also met a lot of good people who we have made contact with again.The workshop was very informative and answered a lot of questions for us, but also highlighted a lot of things we hadn’t thought about before. We're looking forward to putting everything we learned into practice.
