This free workshop is being provided to help smaller businesses in Cheshire East learn how to win public sector contracts.

The public sector is a massive market opportunity. By 2020 government hopes to award 33% of their procurement budget to smaller businesses, out of a total UK public sector spend of around £200 billion a year.

Cheshire East Council alone spends around £260 million annually on contracts, supplies and services with third parties. Winning a public sector contract can help your business to grow.

The workshop is taking place on 20th March, 9.30am-5.00pm, Spanset Training Centre, Telford Way, Middlewich, CW10 0HX

The workshop is suitable for businesses new to the tendering process or looking to improve how they tender.

The one-day workshop aims to cover the whole process from start to finish, focusing on three key areas:
