This 3Mind Writing® course is designed for people within the Charity Sector that provide services to Public Sector organisations.

This is a unique online training course.  Unlike traditional e-learning this programme takes learners through nine deliberate reflective practice learning cycles.  As such, at the end of the course, your competence to write tender responses will have improved dramatically.

Who is the course designed for?

It is aimed at all grades of people, from Administrator to Chief Executive.  Even experienced Bid Managers and Writers will benefit tremendously from the programme.

Your time commitment

The course is not for the faint-hearted.  It will require at least 40 hours of your time to complete the exercises and reflective practice activities. You can try to cram the programme into 1 week, however we would suggest you take it more slowly, doing 1 or 2 lessons each week.


If you fully engage with the programme and the reflective practice activities, you will transform your ability to not just write tender responses, but any form of persuasive proposal.

Course Content


  1. For Cycle 8, I will take away the thoughts regarding ‘writing for the reader’, I will look to ensure my purpose and close align to create a more succinct answer. I will also make sure to think about whether I am writing a people-based, or data-driven story, and whether my writing reflects this.

  2. For Module 7, I will take into account the various cognitive biases that we humans bring to the bid process. I like the idea of drawing upon vivid probability in my answers, moving forward, I will see if I can create a solution or present an idea that a buyer can visualise, thus convincing them that it could happen.

  3. For Module 6, I will take forward the idea of the four flavours of the offer. Looking for the most compelling points that think about and offer solutions is something I will try to do within a bid. Avoiding tangential points is something I will think about too, as sometimes we may shoehorn in something cool, but is not actually relevant.

  4. For Module 5, the learning point I will take away is the importance of addressing the core message within the Open, making sure to find details beyond compliance. Also, making sure that my understanding of a quality service aligns with the benchmark of quality that the buyer is looking for.

  5. For lesson 3, I will take forward the need and importance of presenting a story within a logical framework. It is key that we find the right balance between the emotional story and the logical steps so that the reader can become invested in what you have to offer, but also see justifiable steps that will be taken to achieve a given goal.
