27 of our current grant holders attended the latest workshop with the Cranfield Trust on Tuesday, looking at how to write a successful tender.
The all-day event was run by Trevor Kitching BSc PhD, a fellow of the Chartered Institute of Purchasing, who has 30 years of experience in purchasing and supply chain consultancy and training. It looked specifically at rules around tendering, finding tendering opportunities, understanding the stages of the tendering process and writing winning tenders.
The event was part of The Robertson Trust's Funder Plus approach, which uses both internal and external expertise and resources to improve capacity of third sector organisations, enabling them to increase and improve support for those using their services. The Cranfield Trust uses experienced volunteers to provide management support for our grant holders which may be around governance, financial and business planning.
