About UKSP:

World Class Skills

The overseas technical and vocational education and training (TVET) market is growing rapidly. This growth is driven by strong demand from Governments, industry and individuals for “world class skills” that are industry focused and which provide a framework for improving performance and competitiveness internationally.

The UK’s approach

The UK is renowned for having a long established, high quality TVET and apprenticeship model and is seen as a front runner in its approach to sectoral skills development. The continued evolution of the UK TVET system provides unparalleled expertise and an opportunity to export this capability overseas.

Our Skills Offer

The UK Skills Partnership (UKSP) partners will collaborate on international business development and project delivery by presenting a comprehensive technical and vocational skills offer that is tailored and contextualised to meet the needs of international clients.

Long Term Opportunities

It is envisaged that the strength of the UK TVET export proposition will lead to greater long-term opportunities for the UK skills sector, supporting the aim shared by the UK Government to position the UK as the TVET partner of choice globally.
