Event Information

Public Service Procurement Workshops

Public service procurement workshops are being provided by Cheshire East Council's arms-length The Skills and Growth Company and are to help business people learn how to win public sector contracts.

The aim is to show small and medium-size enterprises (SMEs) from Cheshire East how to ‘get started’ in the bid process and how to produce a tender for both local and central government work. The workshops are suitable for businesses new to the tendering process or looking to improve how they tender.


The latest procurement workshops, which aim to cover the whole process from start to finish, are:

- Let’s get started – on Tuesday, February 27
The ‘invitation to tender’ process – on Tuesday, March 6


The training is designed to be delivered over two training sessions. Businesses are advised to attend both events in order to get the most benefit and understand the whole process.



The first workshop is an introduction to the tendering process, which will show how the framework for public sector tendering operates, how to navigate it and how to prepare for tendering opportunities. The second workshop will explain the best-practice procedures and structures that you should put in place in your organisation to make sure your bids are as professional as possible and also how working in consortia can provide further opportunities.

If you book a place then you will be booked onto both sessions.


The workshops will take place at: Riverside, Mountbatten Way, Congleton, CW12  1DY. Each event starts with refreshments and bacon rolls at 7.45am for a prompt 8am start. The sessions finish at 11am.


Places are strictly limited to Cheshire East businesses only.
