Introduction to Tendering & E-Tenders

Tendering for public and private sector contracts has become a core business skill. Yet, many businesses do not know how to take forward tendering opportunities or don't have the confidence or knowledge to tender for business that they might well have the skills and experience to provide. This half-day programme, with a follow-up mentoring slot, is aimed at building a foundation for a sustainable and continually improving tender-writing capability within each organisation or with individuals. The aim of the training programme is to "provide participants with the knowledge on how to access etender opportunities and develop persuasive written tenders and proposals and to promote a strong and sustainable bid-writing capability."

The programme demystifies tendering and the etenders process and seeks to build the confidence of participants to explore tendering as one important aspect of their business development.
