I have learnt much more than I thought I would. I value what I have taken away with me. This has been an investment into my organisation as well as a personal gain for my own development
Absolutely brilliant. One of the best workshops I have attended. Professional delivery and superb toolkit. First class!
I am now in a much better place to support my organisation in preparation for this immense culture change, I now feel confident and motivated
From knowing nothing about tendering, to having good process knowledge. Took the 'fright' out of the prospect!
Excellent course - it has made me positive about selling our business and more confident in working with commissioners
Very thought provoking sessions. Action learning approach means I'm much more likely to do something with what I have learned as soon as I get back in the office
Fantastic, best course I have been on. Extremely relevant and so beneficial. Would recommend to all
The Masterclasses help develop the skills, knowledge and confidence of third sector organisations to tender for public sector contracts.
The aim is to assist in ‘levelling the playing field’ between local third sector organisations and private sector companies/national charities in the delivery of local services.
The Masterclasses are business focused, locally tailored and encourage peer-to-peer/shared learning.
Aimed primarily at managers and trustees, each Masterclass includes:
• A mixture of technical learning
• Group based exercises
• Examples of good and bad practice
• Case studies
• Guest speaker input
A unique aspect of the Masterclasses is the involvement of local commissioners who will offer expert advice, top tips and provide an opportunity to ask questions about how local services are tendered.
Each attendee will receive a personalised and professionally produced Learning Manual, which includes an Attendee Information Pack, attendee details, a Workbook for each Masterclass, together with a range of supplementary information and guidance.
