Every year, contracts worth many billions of pounds are put out to tender by private businesses and the public sector. In addition, local authorities and organisations within private sector prepare proposals to win a grant from variety of funding streams, for example, the Department for Transport’s funds, European Regional Development Funding and Big Lottery Fund. Competition for these contracts and funds is tough, especially in the current economic climate. This course will help to get you into great shape for bidding, thereby hugely increasing the chance of your future bids being successful. The workshop will give practical guidance on how to tackle bids from start to finish, giving you the skills and confidence for future competitions, regardless of scope, scale or complexity.

Going green in our society is all about achieving sustainability. Thismeans we are able to complete our day-to-day activities with minimal impact on the environment. Making a sustainable decision about travelling is particularly significant given the impact transport has on the environment in general. The increasing concerns over reducing road congestion and carbon emissions, and the urge to promote a healthier lifestyle for the general public are some of the key factors to encourage cycling as a sustainable mode of transport.
This new 12 week evening lecture series aims to provide delegates witha broad range of best practice examples from the UK, Europe and the rest of the world, and to enhance technical expertise on the subject.

Providing high quality public transport has long been seen as a pro-active means of addressing challenges for European cities such as traffic congestion costs, traffic in cities, pollution-related deaths, rising costs of fuel and our unsustainable dependence on cars. However, Public Transport service planners and operators face a range of practical, financial, operational and social challenges in developing services. This course will focus on existing short range public transport planning practice and methods for improving it.
This two-day course is a practical guide to operations planning, improved scheduling, market forecasting and economic appraisal methods for the development of bus and tram services.

The reduction in personnel within many local authorities has led to staff having to become familiar with wider and varying areas of activity without sufficient training or expertise of the legal requirements placed on highway authorities. In addition the current pressures on management of the network as well as delivery of highway and traffic projects can at times mean that not all practitioners have a complete understanding of the powers, statutory duties and the legal and administrative bases on which the network is managed and projects are promoted.
To enable practitioners to gain a better understanding of these requirements PTRC has developed a new 10 week evening course as a cost and time effective approach to training in this area.
Target Audience:¦New recruits to highway authorities¦Experienced practitioners requiring both an update on recent legislation and refreshment on current powers and responsibilities¦‘Specialists’ requiring a more rounded knowledge and understanding of broad highway and traffic legislation ¦Team Managers

The principles of highway engineering apply not only to the construction of major new road schemes, but also to smaller improvements, reconstruction and ongoing road maintenance, carriageway widening, traffic calming, traffic management, cycle ways and residential road design.
This two day course will consider the roles and responsibilities of highway authorities and consultants, and guide participants through highway design, implementation and maintenance processes of new or remodelled roads. Why you should attend:The course is particularly appropriate for recent recruits to consultancies, developers and highways authorities working in design and maintenance departments, engineering graduates and technicians working closely with highway engineers who need to have a greater understanding of highways issues, and more experienced engineers and technicians requiring an update of current legislation, processes and techniques.
