The Departments for Employment and Learning and Enterprise, Trade and Investment have welcomed the launch of the new Graduate Export Sales and Marketing Academy.
The Academy aims to provide graduates with the skills and experience required to take up exciting new exporting opportunities in both the sales and marketing arenas.Selling products and services into export markets is essential for the development of the economy.
Targeting HND, degree or equivalent graduates from any discipline, the Academy will offer an intensive eight week training programme, followed by a nine month temporary work contract with an employer and a potential offer of employment. Participants will receive accredited qualifications recognised by industry and work experience in preparation for new exciting job opportunities in the workplace.
The skills requirements have been identified by indigenous companies wishing to expand on their export markets. Companies wishing to take part in the Academy have been through an Invest NI application process and have an approved project for the graduate to work on during their nine months contract.
This Academy is designed and delivered by Belfast Metropolitan College (BMC) with support from the Department for Employment and Learning and Invest NI under the Assured Skills programme.
