"I found the ‘Get Grant Ready’ and Bid Writing courses absolutely brilliant. The training venue was excellent, and the materials just right. The size of the group was small enough for interaction and sufficiently diverse to be able to learn of experiences in various sectors of the economy.
I left the training session with practical tips and learnt enough to enable me put in a winning bid immediately after the training - £10,000 from The Big Lottery Fund towards the £23,000 cost of a new playground for the school. I was chuffed! Thank you to Idox and the excellent trainers."
Liz Bart-Williams, School Business Manager, St Monica’s Catholic Primary School
"It was really good to take an in-depth look at how to complete applications and why they fail!! Generally really informative, definitely worthwhile for me!"
Mark Tunnock, Regeneration Assistant, Gentoo Housing.
"Good and very practical course. Well delivered and very interactive."
Andrew Cooper, Regional Community Investment Officer, William Sutton Homes.
"Good materials and examples to take away. Small group useful for sharing of information/ideas."
Julie Barratt, Emmaus Rugby.
"Good introduction and though a mix of experience and sectors, good to hear about experiences of others in the room. Great event - good variety in presentation, relaxed/fun atmosphere. Very enjoyable."
