New free procurement training programme for Scottish SME’s launched

The Supplier Development Programme (SDP) – Scotland’s free tender training service for SME’s - has launched a new programme of tender training events.

This year will see changes in Procurement with the introduction of the Reform Act and the SDP is on hand to help businesses understand the up and coming changes within public sector tendering.

The new Programme has been designed to ensure that SME’s can easily progress through the various different course levels with free events in or near their business location, plus many of the courses can be accessed online via webinar, reducing the time burden on small businesses being out of the office.

The Programme includes a wealth of new courses, including “hot topics” such as Community Benefits and Sustainable Procurement, as well as core issues such as finding contracts and completing PQQs. So whether you are just starting out and wish to find out about how to work with the public sector or need to improve your tender skills, SDP will have a course for you.
