Training Course on Writing Winning Proposals

Writing Winning Proposals
Develop convincing and attractive proposals

You have a project idea which needs funding. You want to respond to a request for proposals or mobilise new resources for your organisation. You want to demonstrate your added value but are facing stiff competition. Learn to write a proposal that stands out.

We believe that writing a convincing and attractive proposal is something we all can learn.


This course is designed for managers or staff members working for a consultancy firm, an NGO or a government institute, involved in writing project proposals or in responding to tenders for services.  


At the end of the training, you will:

  • Know how to match your proposal idea to funders needs.
  • Know how to bring needed logic and structure to your proposal.
  • Understand the proposal writing process and criteria that will be used to assess it.
  • Raise your confidence in simple but strong writing.
  • Have received feedback on your writing drafts.
