At Tender Victory, our tender consultants specialise in writing winning tender responses for public sector contract opportunities. They use their knowledge and experience of the public sector, gained first hand, to share with clients their tips and expertise for creating winning tender responses.

Tender Victory’s core training packages are delivered in two areas:

1) As public sector tenders are often seen as complex and difficult to break into, our Understanding Public Sector Procurement training package is designed to explain the regulations, acronyms and jargon in a clear and relevant way – enabling businesses to engage with public sector tendering and win important contracts.

2) Our Tender and Bid Writing training package has been designed to help clients draft winning tender responses, when bidding to the public sector.  However the content of this training is also equally applicable to commercial and private sector tendering, as many of the techniques used are transferable and relevant.

The attached summary of services provides an indicative agenda for both of these training packages. All training is bespoke. We tailor our delivery to the audience and organisation we are working with. Our outline agendas are modified to suit your organisation’s training needs, ensuring that your team gain targeted training which is right for your organisation. Please contact us to find out more
