Free training initiative

Have your say

Businesses across South Yorkshire are being offered free language tuition through South Yorkshire International Trade Centre.

The courses, which include tuition in Arabic, Chinese, Spanish and Russian, are designed to help businesses increase their export sales, encourage trade with new markets and achieve better relations and dealings with their overseas business partners.

Courses are free to all local businesses, employees, the self-employed and volunteers.

SYITC, a partnership of all the South Yorkshire Chambers of Commerce, offers a range of tuition, including full and part-time courses, one-to-one tuition, in-house tuition and evening classes, which all lead to nationally accredited qualifications.

SYITC international trade manager Michelle Daniel said: “International trade is an increasingly vital area of business growth and communicating in the right language is crucial when doing business overseas.”
