Winning work in the public sector is a specialist area. To be successful, you need to submit extremely high-quality bids and tenders.

This course will show your team how to plan, structure and write public sector bids and tenders, so that you can be confident of winning your next contract. We tailor the content using real-life examples of your bids and tenders so that all the materials are relevant to your team, and the techniques easy to apply.

A key feature of this course is that all delegates receive our unique pre-course writing analysis. This covers 15 different areas of writing skills and helps us ensure the training meets the delegates’ precise writing needs, while ensuring delegates make rapid, targeted improvements.

We can run this course remotely online or in person at your workplace or choice of venue.

By the end of the training, attendees will be able to:

fully answer the questions in a public sector brief, ITT or RFP
engage all readers – from senior public sector executives to procurement teams
use win themes and highlight benefits that are meaningful to public sector clients
understand how to build and structure key messages that are tailored to public sector organisations
avoid misusing ‘boilerplate’ text
bring together multiple contributions to make a winning argument
learn how to spot embarrassing errors in a bid before it’s sent to the client.
