Supply2Win is a tailored training package developed specifically with you in mind. Whether you’re new to tendering or have had some success in the past, our courses are designed to provide you with a greater understanding of the procurement processes and a clearer vision of what buyers really want from a tender.


How can Supply2Win help me?

We understand that public sector procurement can be difficult to get your head around, especially if you’re new to the sector. That’s where our expertise comes in handy.

Our courses are designed to provide you with a greater understanding of the procurement processes and a clearer vision of what buyers really want from a tender. Our courses also break down some of the myths behind procurement, explain the issues in short bite-size pieces and give you the knowledge to be more successful in the public procurement marketplace.


What courses do you offer?

Course 1: Understanding Public Procurement

Our first course, Understanding Public Procurement, is designed to explain the different elements that make up the procurement process and give you clarity on the different steps and stages in tendering.

Attending this course will allow you to gain:

  • an understanding of the procurement procedures
  • clarity about the different stages of tendering
  • the knowledge to be able to question buyers

Course 2: Reading the Documentation

Course two, Reading the Documentation, is designed to enhance your understanding of the documentation that makes up a tender exercise.

Ultimately, it’s important to remember that the documentation is merely a set of instructions and questions but knowing how to read them is the key to being successful. That’s where we help!

Attending this course will allow you to:

  • learn to read the Selection Questionnaire
  • understand the type of Specification you receive
  • build a structured Bid/No-Bid process


Course 3: A Guide to Successful Tendering

A Guide to Successful Tendering is designed to take a closer look at the key drivers that are of ever greater importance to contracting authorities and highlights the advantages of always keeping these in focus when bidding.

Attending this course will allow you to:

  • gain a better understanding of the buyer and what they want
  • learn to build sustainability into your bids, by developing a clearer vision of the social, environmental and economic drivers behind procurement.
  • know what to expect at the evaluation stage and what can and can’t be asked for


Each course is totally interactive and lasts for 2.5 hours, including a 10-minute break. You will also have the opportunity to ask questions along the way during our Q&A sessions. And we have an exclusive offer just for you! Each course is usually priced at £145, but you can sign up today for only £95! Simply use code, EB21 when you make the purchase.
