Developing Bid and Tender Writing Skills - Intermediate Level
This course is part of a series of three Bid & Tender Writing training events designed to cater for the needs of delegates at all levels. The series offers a clear progression route through the workshops; however they also work well as stand alone topics:
‘Developing Bid and Tender Writing Skills ’ is for staff who have had previous experience and success in writing Bids and Tenders, but need to raise their skills and knowledge of the process.
Prospective delegates should possess a good grounding in the procedures associated with Bid and Tender applications and will have had some success in the past. The workshop also identifies the building blocks of successful applications to funding agencies and PQQ and ITT responses to Tenders to deliver publicly funded goods, services and supplies. It explores key elements that maximize the potential of all application responses and gives expert guidance on the factors that are likely to lead to positive responses from funders. The training event also provides progression activities for those delegates who have attended our workshop - Introduction to Bid and Tender Writing.
This workshop will also be especially appropriate for those responsible for; designing projects, commissioning bid writing consultants for all government programmes including the structural funds including ESF and ERDF, regeneration programmes or local community-based inward investment programmes, or applying to deliver public services procured through tendering. It will also enable participants to practice the skills and gain knowledge required for successful applications to funding agencies including the National Lottery, Trusts, Charities or intermediate finance initiatives.
