Full day course, 22nd February, London
Both central and local government have moved away from grant-making to commissioning services from the third sector. This course provides an overview of the expectations of public sector funders and outlines best practice in bidding to the public sector.
The third sector is well-placed to deliver high-quality public services – but small charities need to present themselves as fit-for-purpose to make the most of the opportunities!
This training course is supported by the Cabinet Office Small Charities Fundraising Training Programme.
This course is for bid writers, service managers, CEOs and senior managers – and anyone who would like to learn more about how to effectively engage in public service commissioning.
At the end of the course, participants will be able to:
- Describe the new public sector commissioning environment and models for delivery.
- Identify opportunities to secure statutory contracts for their charity.
- Assess whether a consortium approach is suitable, taking into account potential benefits and risks.
- Research potential supply chain opportunities to subcontract work from larger organisations.
- Develop a bid which covers key requirements; including aims, services, costs and credibility.
