Bespoke Bid Writing Courses

Our in-house bid writing training is delivered in workshops tailored to your current levels of experience, competence, strengths and weaknesses – this can also be delivered via an online course, to multiple delegates at times to suit you. Regardless of whether your organisation is new to bidding and needs to go through the tender process from start to finish, or if you are more experienced and are looking to improve your ability to create high-quality and persuasive responses to increase your success rate, our training can be tailored to meet your requirements.

Ahead of the training, one of our experienced bid managers would be happy to review one or more past invitations to tender submitted by your organisation, helping to drive the personalisation of the course to specifically respond to identified development areas. We will also discuss which industry sector you work in, to tailor the training accordingly. We are a generalist consultancy, completing construction tenders through to social care and professional services bids, and as such we understand the nuances for each industry sector. Our team are involved in circa 500 bids and tenders each year, and therefore we are well placed to support your organisation.

Throughout the training day itself, content, examples and discussions will align specifically to your experiences, priorities and objectives, helping you and your team to make the most of the course. As well as bid writing skills, we target abilities relevant to the whole bid and tender process, all captured within a CPD-certified tender management course.

The workshops are designed to be interactive and to provide you with the tools and techniques to help your company complete PQQs, SQs, bids and tenders to a high quality and become successful bid writing consultants, using the same proven bid processes that our professional bid managers and writers apply every day.
