Local voluntary and care sector representatives learn to bid

Bidding workshops

CIDT was commissioned by Telford Enterprise to provide three one-day training events to strengthen capacity and skills of local voluntary sector and care sector organisations to write bids and funding proposals.

Ella Haruna delivered the training to a range of care and support sector organisations; community organisations; and town/parish councils. These organisations are running youth clubs, mental health support, groups to support the integration of BAME; groups for young carers, preservation of community buildings etc.

Participant feedback

“Excellent workshop.  Loved the variety of activities and group participation and sharing.  Met some great people and will certainly continue networking with them”

“Good, easy to understand course.  Given me a good insight to go away and write bids with confidence”

“Today has given me the skills & confidence to address this with the other committee members.  A great day thank you”

“A very useful guide which will become my new best friend at the office.” 

“Trainer was clearly very knowledgeable & easy to listen to.”

Training Approach

The training aimed to build confidence of training participants and to provide a step-by-step approach, which could give a clear starting point.  The agenda was developed around seven steps, with an interactive group work exercise to support each session
