Social Value in Bidding

Course Overview

This CPD accredited online course is perfect for individuals who are comfortable with the tendering process but are looking to improve their scores for social value answers.

Social value questions in tenders are increasingly being allocated higher weightings. As an organisation it’s therefore important to fully understand what they mean, how to prepare for them, and how to best answer them.

Course Objectives

  • Understand what buying authorities mean by ‘social value’
  • Learn why social value is included in tenders
  • Understand how to measure and deliver social value
  • Understand the different ways in which social value can be assessed in tenders
  • Understand how to best answer social value questions

Course Areas

  • Social value requirements in the public sector
  • Social value in your organisation
  • Developing your own social value policy
  • Preparing for social value questions
  • Measuring social value in tenders
  • Maximising social value scores

Your trainer will be expert bid writer Jamie Edwards, and as this is an interactive session, you will benefit from being able to ask questions, participate in conversations and learn from Jamie’s experiences.

The course is delivered via Zoom and will last 3.5 hours. You can attend this course without any installation required to your computer, but it is highly recommended that you join using a desktop or laptop computer rather than a tablet or mobile phone. Ideally you will have both a webcam and microphone.
