Welcome, educationexport supports companies, training providers and public institutions worldwide to improve their level of education and to reduce skill shortages. We provide advice on how to distribute education in different market settings and how to improve education systems.

For companies

How can you improve the level of quality and know-how of your firm´s workforce?

A debate exists in current literature about whether the world is facing a skill shortage or a mismatch of talent. Many industries are experiencing a shortage of skilled workers. In Europe, youth unemployment has reached record levels – at the same time, companies cannot find enough young candidates with the required qualifications. We offer up-to-date strategic and market know-how for improving the level of internal training and aligning education standards and workforce qualifications at all company sites.

For public and private institutions

How can you improve the level of quality of your national education system?

The importance of education is constantly rising. More and more countries increase their spending in education but often remain behind their ambitions. The majority of countries faces low qualification levels among the workforce and a rising skill shortage. While the level of academic education is increasingly assimilating internationally, the level of vocational and professional on-the-job training still does not comply with the demands of international employers and industry.

We advise you on the very best way of exploiting the potential advantages of dual education with a very high amount of application-oriented, workplace-based and occupationally-focused elements.

For training providers

How can you sell education internationally? What is the right business model?

The changes of Brasil and, Russia and the slowdown of China blur outlooks and complicate the activities for international business. Training providers therefore need to carefully evaluate given information to make the right decision on markets and partners. We provide up-to-date know-how on developing appropriate international business models for selling education to foreign countries and we accompany your implementation process with our global network.
