About the course provider:
This course will be led by Sue Scott whose 18-year career at Groundwork UK included an extensive track record of developing new business opportunities and generating income. In this former role, she successfully obtained funds totalling more than £10 million from Government Departments, the corporate sector, lottery bodies and charitable trusts, and now spends her time advising others on how to do the same.
"It really was the best workshop I have attended in a long while and the trainer was fantastic – very informative."
"The structured content was very informative and gives me more confidence to put in more complex bids"
"I found the ‘Get Grant Ready’ and Bid Writing courses absolutely brilliant. The training venue was excellent, and the materials just right. The size of the group was small enough for interaction and sufficiently diverse to be able to learn of experiences in various sectors of the economy.
I left the training session with practical tips and learnt enough to enable me put in a winning bid immediately after the training. I was chuffed! Thank you to Idox and the excellent trainers.."
