Bid Writing


Aiming to raise funds for projects or operations? Whether you’re new to the bid writing process or want to scale up your applications, this course will equip you to win.

You’ll understand every stage of the bid writing process from identifying funds to delivering a winning bid, both in the wider strategic and policy contexts and at the nitty-gritty level of practical Dos and Don’ts. After completing this course, you’ll be fully prepared not just for filling in the form, but for the whole journey.
Who is this course for?
Individuals to small-to-medium enterprises aiming to raise funds for projects or operations. The course is suitable for both those who have not been through the bid writing process and those who have some experience but wish to improve their skills or increase the scale of their applications.
For those with existing bids in mind…
Laura will tailor the course for attendees who are targeting specific bids based on their feedback at the start of the day.
