You will be guided through an example tender question to ensure the response answers the question, is compliant, offers value for money and is written persuasively.

  • Identify relevant tender requirements and show how you will meet them
  • Identify relevant evaluation criteria and apply them to the question. 

Module 3: Structure a comprehensive response

  • Design a response using a clear structure
  • Write a strong introduction with a direct answer
  • Provide the detail to answer comprehensively
  • Create order and flow of information.
  • Write for a wide-ranging audience. 

Module 4: Write a compelling response

  • Learn how to demonstrate and substantiate, and communicate benefits
  • Create easy-to-read sentences
  • Use correct spelling, grammar and punctuation.
