Training Courses


Applying for grant funding is very competitive and professional in its approach; the 'funding bar' is continuing to rise. A number of half-day training courses will be delivered by Stephen Wright at a variety of venues, details below. Places are limited to approximately 10 people per course and must be booked and paid for in advance.

The training will enable public, private, voluntary and community sector organisations to write and develop 'exceptional' grant funding applications, training which will also assist in tendering for contracts. Although individual grant funding sources have their own eligibility and assessment criteria, the principles for producing a compelling application are broadly similar; it is these principles that will be explained. The course will be relaxed, informative, interactive, and use various learning methods to help you understand and remember key points. Stephen's training has a track record of success; he is motivational and aims to inspire success. Testimonials confirm the quality of his training and advice.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND: People who write and develop grant funding applications and tenders; people who advise on securing grant funding; people who assess and award grant funding.
