FAB 2019 Guest Speaker Announcement: Jonathan Ledger

We’re really pleased to welcome Jonathan Ledger, Global Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Specialist for the Department for International Trade Education, to the FAB 2019 Conference which is taking place in Leicester on 10 and 11 October. 

Jonathan’s expertise is used to lead the development of international TVET opportunities for UK suppliers, developing the UK TVET export capacity, and promoting the UK’s capabilities in the sector.

The UK Government’s International Education Strategy sets out ambitions to increase the number of organisations exporting and to increase the value of those exports. Globally, the education sector offers huge growth potential for those UK suppliers wishing to extend their business portfolio and to reach further.


This session will help Awarding Organisations ‘de-risk’ their thinking around exports and will provide insights into the UK’s export and trade strategy. Case studies demonstrating export excellence and learning about the current opportunities available in the skills export market will also be covered. Opportunities for discussion and Q&A.

Three key points that delegates will take away are:

  • Updates on export support available
  • Market insights
  • Strategic export approaches.


Jonathan Ledger is offering FAB conference attendees the opportunity to spend a few minutes on a one to one basis to discuss exporting, and to provide advice, guidance and market information.

Slots are strictly a maximum of 15 minutes each. Please book your export surgery slot direct with Jonathan at jonathan.ledger@trade.gov.uk
