Sponsoring an Employee
The Diploma of International Trade is based on the skills and knowledge demanded by organisations involved in International Trade. We know that, because we talk to exporters every day, and the course was designed by exporters for exporters.
Why sponsor an employee?
Exporters enrolled in the Diploma apply their learning in the workplace from day one. By the end of the course, they will have produced a comprehensive International Trade Plan to help take your business into the future; and they will have the confidence, knowlege and expertise to make better informed decisions.
Grow your exports and reduce costly errors through staff development
Investing in your employees through staff development is known to improve staff retention and boost morale in the workplace. Gaining specialist knowledge and skills will also reduce costly errors, strenghthen your export team and increase your company's credibility with customers - ensuring your business reaches its targets and maintains its competitive edge.
How much time do employees need?
The Diploma demands hard work, an average of five hours per week and you are encouraged to negotiate time for professional development. At the very least, employees will require time to complete the assessments associated with each module.
How have other business benefitted?
Red Seal is currently exporting to a number of countries mainly Australia & Pacific, North Asia and the UK. This specialist course came up at the right time, when we struggled to find skilled people here. Our only option was to train one of our existing staff and we are really pleased that Belinda took the challenge, as she has grown very quickly from being just an administrator to a really good international trade professional.
