Attendees at a Building Blocks Masterclass


Pulse Regeneration has completed the initial delivery of four masterclasses on behalf of Dudley CVS for third sector organisations following the success of the ‘Building Blocks Voluntary and Community Sector Good Practice Toolkit’. The masterclasses are supported by the Department of Health, Dudley Council and IVAR to help develop the skills, knowledge and confidence of the organisations when tendering for public sector contracts. Nine senior commissioners and procurement officers attended the masterclasses as expert speakers to ensure that content was fresh and responded to the changing landscape. Evaluation showed that 90% of attendees considered the masterclasses to be excellent.

Attendees comments included:

“This will help us to improve our service and we will go back to the challenge of tendering and producing winning bids”

“The Masterclasses have helped me to focus on some key actions that I need to take to ensure that my organisation can compete in a new world and to enable us to be sustainable”

“Essential for any VCO to prepare for tendered services”
