How it works
The Marketplace lists training opportunities posted by teams from all levels of government.

Who can respond?
Sellers approved to offer training, learning and development through the Marketplace can respond to these opportunities. Sellers who are not on the Marketplace can register and request an assessment at any time.
Learning design standards
If an opportunity refers to a learning design standard (LDS), your response needs to show:
- what you intend to cover from it, and
- how you propose to deliver it, while factoring in the buyer’s needs, timeframes and budget.
You don't need to create any final training material as part of your response.

Ask a question
At the bottom of each opportunity, you can ask the buyer a question about the opportunity. Select 'Sign in to ask a question' and submit your question. The buyer will publish their answer on the page for all sellers to see. Sellers will need to keep watch the page to check for answers.
Each opportunity has a deadline for asking questions. This gives the buyer enough time to respond before the opportunity closes.
Preparing your response
Use the percentages to guide where to focus your proposal.
For example, if ‘technical competence' is worth 70%, then focus most of your effort on that criteria.

Your written proposal will need to be uploaded in PDF or ODT format and not exceed 20MB.

Submit your response
To submit a response to the brief before it closes, check you have:

What happens after I submit?
The buyer receives all submissions once the brief has closed. If you're successful, the buyer will contact you. They may ask for references, case studies, an interview and/or a presentation.
We ask buyers to let sellers know if they’ve been unsuccessful. This may happen after the buyer awards the contract.
