The ability to write a first class, informative tender submission is an art that requires preparation, strategic thinking and creative flair. With that in mind, Thornton & Lowe has designed a range of full-day, practical training courses, designed to help you write a clear, concise and compelling bid.

The training has been developed and is delivered by our highly-experienced senior bid team. It will guide you through the process from start to finish, making sure you get the formula right each time.

Our training courses are proving popular with clients, as they receive hands on, relevant information, as well as plenty of opportunities to have your questions answered. Plus the course is packed full of constructive tips and feedback too.
