A new wave of UK export experts
Thursday 16 Feb 2017 Author: Steven Frazer

THIS Is the number of places being made available in a new Skills Section of the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme designed to create a new generation of UK export experts. The scheme will give young people in Britain the opportunity to be educated, trained and mentored on exporting every year.

The idea emerged following a pioneering competition devised by Warrington-based global payment industry specialist, ICC Solutions. It challenged schools to think creatively and choose a product or service to export to a country that is involved in the Duke of Edinburgh programme, which celebrated its 60th anniversary in 2016.
