3 tips to help you tender for training contracts

  1. Make sure it’s a suitable tender

When you tender for training contracts, the first thing you need to do is make sure it’s a suitable project. If it’s not and you proceed with the bid anyway, you’re wasting your business’ precious time and resources.

If you’re unsure how to determine whether or not a tender is suitable, you could create a checklist. Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Do you have relevant case studies?
  • Is it financially viable for your business?
  • Do you meet the financial standing?
  • Do you offer something unique in the market?
  • Does this fit with your long-term strategy?
  • Do you need to outsource any work?
  • Does your company have the ability to deliver the work on paper?
  • Do you have time to deliver the work?
  • If you were in the buyer’s shoes, would you choose yourself for the project?
  1. Submit a high-quality, well-written proposal

One of the most important things to consider when you tender for training contracts is the quality of your response. To secure tenders for your business, you need to submit a high-quality, well-written tender proposal.

The quality of your response is important, as this makes it easier to convey information to the buyer. If they have to jump through hoops to understand your answer, you’re unlikely to win the bid.

To increase your chances of success, use simple, clear and concise language in your tender response. Avoid too much technical jargon and express your ideas clearly.

  1. Showcase your experience

When you bid for a project, you need to demonstrate your experience to the buyer. They’ll expect to see previous contract examples that show you’re capable of delivering the work.

You should submit two to three case studies from the past three to five years when you tender for training contracts. Ideally, these case studies will be similar in size, scope and complexity to the project you’re bidding for. This will assure the buyer that you have experience with similar contracts and are the right supplier for the job. So, for example, don’t submit examples of your previous experience with project management if you’re bidding for training contracts.

In summary 

So, now you know how to increase your chances of success for when you tender for training contracts. Firstly, you need to make sure it’s a suitable tender for your business. If you’re unlikely to win, don’t proceed with the bid. You need to make sure that your tender response is well-written, using clear and concise language.
