The session was great but the time constraints caused some slight problems. There were people who had worked on bids previously but their content felt rushed due to the artificial timescales. It's a difficult one to balance as you need to give people the feeling of writing a bid but can't allow much longer than the two days in reality. I really did appreciated the trainers emphasising to the group that this was an exercise, this helped keep the group on track and not beat themselves up too much when their bid wasn't "perfect".
I found the course really interesting and very well delivered by both Akim and the areas where Tina delivered her input - I would have liked in a less condensed format however, understandably this was put into a half day sessions for good reasons that were explained. The only mention I feel worth making is i am still awaiting the information promised on the course to be emailed out to me, as it is nearly two weeks now and if we had a complaint (thankfully we haven't) it would be really good to have this resource available to refer to and act upon, hence the three stars on Quality if training materiels
