We help UK education and training organisations win business overseas. We identify high value commercial education opportunities and then work with the UK education and training sector to prepare effective, co-ordinated UK responses.
UKTI Education has been jointly set up by the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills (BIS) and UK Trade & Investment (UKTI). Our team acts as a central point of contact within UK government for enquiries from overseas governments, agencies, companies and organisations seeking UK help with their large-scale education and training projects. We help these overseas partners to access the broadest range of UK education and training expertise.
We’re responsible for:
helping the UK education and training sector to identify, access and pursue high value education opportunities overseas
encouraging UK education organisations to collaborate on specific opportunities and helping to promote UK bids
helping overseas customers to find UK education and training organisations that can supply the services and expertise they need for their large-scale education and training projects
raising the profile of UK education and training around the world
We help deliver effective international education solutions in areas including:
education and training provision
educational technology and resources
qualifications, assessment and quality assurance

We are currently focusing on large-scale education and training opportunities in a number of priority markets
