The UK is internationally renowned for its world-class education and training sector, and many countries are keen to access this expertise for their own development. UKTI Education helps education and training providers to harness the growing demand for education and win contracts overseas.
Bringing together a team of experts, PA supported the development of a specialist education team, which will identify and help develop a greater number of overseas opportunities for UK education providers.
The team was mobilised within just six months and has already helped UK education providers to win more than £375 million worth of contracts to operate vocational colleges in Saudi Arabia. In addition, the UKTI Education team is currently supporting a number of UK education and training providers bidding to operate other Saudi colleges in deals with a potential value to the UK of circa £500 million.
Emily Ashwell, Managing Director of UKTI Education, said: “It is no exaggeration to say that the team would not have achieved what it has, or be as well placed to deliver on its ambitious plans, without PA's input.”
