Propozition helps Wates secure places on £4bn EFA Contractors’ Framework

Propozition helps Wates secure places on £4bn EFA Contractors’ Framework

We’re thrilled to have helped Wates achieve places on the Education Funding Agency Contractors’ Framework (both the North and South lots).  The framework covers the design and build of free schools, academies and other education facilities.  With a value of £4bn over four years, competition for places on each lot was fiercely competitive.  These two lots come on top of two recent Priority Schools batch wins with Wates.

Supporting Wates’ dedicated education team, our role on this bid mirrored our previous successful engagements with this team:

  • Helping Wates refine the articulation of their schools proposition – to provide a clear and consistent narrative through every part of the bid submission
  • Training their subject-matter experts in effective bid writing – so each could produce compelling draft answers
  • Providing coaching and review support to authors – to drive up the marks
  • Delivering a document template solution to lock-in best practice – to create consistency and dramatically shorten the production process.

Wates already had a strong proposition for standardised schools and a very capable education team.

With only one or two-page responses allowed for each question it was vital we made every sentence count.

Propozition added their trademark combination of very effective author-training, coaching and challenge and simplified bid production that allowed our solution to shine – it meant that every answer scored highly in the evaluation.

Once again, I’m delighted with Propozition’s contribution to another major education win at Wates.
