Online Accredited Social Value and SROI Practitioner Training

We are now delivering our most popular training course online; Social Value and SROI Accredited Practitioner Training. 

This course will cover all of the same content as the 2 day course, delivered through 1 hr sessions of online delivery, group webinar sessions and assignments.  This is more contact time than takes place on the physical 2 day course and will include some 1-2-1 mentoring.

The 1hr sessions will be delivered live, if you are unable to make a session they will be made available for catch up for a week after they have taken place. There are some live webinars and exercises scheduled that must be completed in a set time frame in order to get a certificate of completion.

You will receive content that has been developed over 10 years, delivered by an accredited trainer with 15 years experience of training and SROI (about the trainer).
