City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council, Economy & Development service has plans to commission a place-based entrepreneurial support programme across the district for two to three years. The Council is seeking to commission enterprise coaches in specific localities across the district to provide entrepreneurial support in communities. The ambition is to increase self-employment, sustainable jobs and businesses to help accelerate the economic recovery following the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The programme will align with West Yorkshire Combined Authority’s (WYCA) investment and delivery of entrepreneurial support package across the region.

Workshop 1: Enterprise Coaching Services Market Engagement Workshop

We would like to invite all potential bidders to a workshop hosted by the University of Bradford that will provide an overview of the forthcoming commissioning call. There will be information regarding the broad service requirements, provider requirements, programme outputs and geographic focus.

The workshop will be open to those who would like to attend in person or to participate online. There are spaces for 30-40 people to attend in person which permits social distancing, as such places will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
