AEB Update 9th November 2018

AEB SSQ Tendering Workshops

GMLPF, in anticipation of the 1st stage of AEB tendering going live, is working with The Leadership Team (who work nationally and with some of our members to support tender writing) to deliver 2 AEB tendering workshops on Thursday 22nd November at the offices of GMLPF.

Workshop 1 will run from 9.30 to 12.00 and Workshop 2 will run from 1.00 to 3.30. The workshops will be delivered from the offices of GMLPF. There are limited places (a max of 14 per workshop) and there will be a small charge (£49 per person) to cover the costs of the training. The workshops will be designed to assist learning providers to understand the SSQ, to walk through the first stage bidding process and ask questions relevant to the first stage bidding process.
