RWA Launches New International Trade Learning Platform

With Brexit on the horizon and at a time when many UK businesses are getting involved in importing and exporting, there has never been a greater need for better education in trade and export. Businesses need to expand their knowledge, discover the opportunities available and understand how to navigate and mitigate risks in these uncertain times.

Trade & Export Online is a new online learning solution from RWA for those who work in the areas of import and export, provide advice to clients who import and export, or those who may wish to start trading overseas.

The simple to use platform allows learners to purchase individual bite-size courses that are simple to follow and produced to a high standard, having supported a level 5 qualification for 10 years.

International trade is a complex area, yet it can offer huge opportunities for businesses and it’s an area that also contains significant risks to a business when it goes wrong and is not managed properly.

So, how can you access the learning content?

Every learner can self-enrol through the new web platform and browse the course catalogue. There are over 30 course modules available and learners can purchase a module via a simple to use checkout system to start learning immediately. Each individual course retails at £50 per learner and pathways are available with discounts.

Every course includes learning material and a knowledge assessment. When the learner has completed the assessment with a score of 100%, a badge will be awarded.

Content is regularly updated and will continue to change as Brexit unfolds. If you do not wish to purchase a course yet, then you can still register on the website and this will activate a monthly international trade newsletter sent direct to your email inbox.

For professional advisors: Add Trade and Export Online to your service offering.

Trade and Export Online can also be offered as a service to your customers. We can offer solutions to make this valuable tool available to you. Options include white labelling the platform and providing subsidised discount codes for your customers that will help you add value to your own relationships and to help you win and retain business.
