Firm Foundations Commissioning and Procurement Masterclasses are a Success

Group Exercise, Attendees Costing a Tender


Pulse Regeneration has successfully delivered a series of four Commissioning and Procurement Masterclasses to voluntary and community sector organisations in Wolverhampton on behalf of Wolverhampton Voluntary Sector Council. The purpose of the Masterclasses was to help attendees to understand how they can successfully enter into public sector contracting with the aim of becoming financially sustainable. The Masterclasses were hugely successful in gaining positive feedback from attendees with 100% rating the Masterclasses as ‘excellent’. Going forward attendees are to develop a network in order to share learning and experience, and to keep up to date with new opportunities and developments. Attendees commented:

“The Masterclasses have given me the confidence and ability to apply for commissions and hopefully win!!” (Gazebo Theatre in Education)

“Have clear understanding of process, how to prepare, and then respond when the opportunity arises with some degree of confidence.” (Age Concern Wolverhampton)

“Putting the jigsaw of commissioning and procurement to get sense of it - theses sessions helped tremendously.” (Ethnic Minority Council)
