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.
