The bespoke courses will be delivered mainly online and aim to give staff practical insights on the markets and economies where they’re posted.

Tony Osude, a director at UCLC, said: “This contract is a wonderful opportunity for UCL, the top-ranked Economics research department in the UK, to share its knowledge at the heart of government. It also provides a great platform for UCL’s innovative teaching methods.”
