Linking Business with Education

End Date:

Since September 2012, schools have been legally responsible for securing access to independent and impartial careers guidance for all of their students in years 9 to 11. In September 2013, OFSTED published the survey ‘Going in the right direction?’ found that only 1 in 5 schools were effective in ensuring that all of its year 9 – 11 students were receiving the level of information, advice and guidance they need to support decision making. The survey went on to describe that links between careers guidance and local employment opportunities were weak, with too few schools using partnerships with local employers, LEP’s and other organisations.

This is a fantastic opportunity for North East based businesses to learn more about exporting to the dynamic markets of South East Asia.


Meet British Chamber representatives and export experts from Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam and the Philippines, who can offer in depth advice and support that will help you to grow your business in this rapidly growing region.


With a diverse range of countries South East Asia offers many opportunities for businesses of all shapes and sizes with suitable markets for novice exporters and experienced exporters alike.


Although there are economic and political disparities between the countries in South East Asia, as a single market, it is predicted to become the 4th largest after the EU, the US and China by 2030. It offers many exciting and lucrative opportunities to companies prepared to take an interest in this region.


If you’re interested in exporting to this region or simply want to learn more about it as a potential future market we’d love to see you.  The event involves presentations and Q&A and we’d particularly welcome companies that would like short 1-1 meetings with the representatives.
Attendance is free of charge but pre-registration is necessary.
