Since July 2016 the Department for International Trade (DIT) has paid £1,723,675 on learning and development.

DIT has a training budget of £2.1m for 2017-18; this budget covers a range of learning and development opportunities for staff.

DIT staff attend training provided by the Trade Policy and Negotiations Faculty. The role of the Faculty is to build trade policy and negotiations capability in Departments across Her Majesty's Government.

In addition, as part of our on-going commitment to building capability across DIT, we have developed a DIT branded Learning Hub to utilise available technology to host and deliver learning through formal, informal and social learning methods, across the global network.
