Given that you know what kind of organisation you are, where you get your funding, what kind of training you will be providing, what other services/products you might be providing and to whom you will be providing them, I suggest you have a look at VAT Notices 701/30 and 741A and see if they help.

She said that VAT is chargeable because training is taking place in the UK

Is there a reason you didn't believe her?

#Edit# Not that I'm convinced you should believe her based on my understanding of your situation... I think you need to answer Les before we can be sure.

It is not that I don’t believe her. It’s right when training is taking place in the uk Vat Is applicable but my understanding is that is applicable to EU .
In this scenario the client is in Africa which is out of Vat scope.
I am really confused about this that is why I want to address it .
