New UK Government Procurement Programme
The School for Social Entrepreneurs has teamed up with Social Enterprise UK (SEUK) and Voice4Change England to launch a new programme to help charities and social enterprises bid for and win public sector contracts. They are hosting an entirely FREE series of webinars, workshops and longer programmes for voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations in England, named the VCSE Contract Readiness Programme and funded by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS). The courses are pitched for organisations at different stages of contract readiness.
SEUK are also hosting an online Public Services Hub with resources for both VCSEs and public sector commissioners to help them cofunction more effectively during procurement.
This is the perfect programme for social enterprises wanting to break into public sector contracting.
