Social value is a hot topic in the world of public sector procurement. It refers to the wider economic, social and environmental benefits that can be achieved by delivering public services. Social value in tenders is becoming more and more important, as buyers are looking for suppliers who can demonstrate how working with them benefits society and the environment.

If you want to win more public contracts, you need to know how to incorporate social value in your bids. You need to understand what social value means for different buyers, how to measure and evidence it, and how to write convincing responses showcasing your social value proposition.

But don’t worry, you don’t have to figure it out on your own. This training course can help you learn how to write tenders with social value in mind. This bid writing course will teach you everything you need to know, covering the following topics:
