Mentoring

Get one-to-one support with your social value project

The SROI Practitioner Training provides trainees with a clear understanding of the questions and Principles of Social Value, and how they come together in a useable framework. In two days, the Practitioner Training course does not provide detailed answers for all the questions every individual SROI trainee may have. However, if you have experience and expertise of some of the disciplines SROI uses and draws upon, then you should not have difficulty in starting to apply the some of the Principles of Social Value once you have completed the Practitioner Training.

If you do not feel like you have enough experience and expertise, or you wish to undertake an SROI to a higher level of rigour than you have experience and expertise for, then we can provide mentoring support to work with you through the questions to complete an SROI with you.

When considering mentoring, please get in touch with us first to discuss your objectives and available options.

 

One-to-one Mentoring

The mentoring programme is designed for individual practitioners who have completed the Practitioner Training and are undertaking an SROI. During three days of support, you will be taken through the SROI process, from scoping to report in five mentoring steps.

  1. Scope, objectives and action plan
  2. Stakeholder involvement plan
  3. Theory of change
  4. Draft value map
  5. Draft report

For each of the five mentoring steps, we will agree what is to be done and by when. You will submit something in writing for each step where you will then receive written comments. You will finally have a follow-up call with your mentor to discuss comments and agree the next steps. One-to-one mentoring will be to your timescales, and will be delivered by an Accredited Practitioner.

Mentoring can be for an SROI for any purpose except accreditation, including public reporting verified by the assurance process. Mentoring cannot be used for accreditation for an individual, as the mentor will become involved in the judgements being made.

 

The cost of mentoring is:

  • £2,250 + VAT
  • 15% discount for individual members
  • 25% discount for organisational members

The programme is designed to be delivered remotely by email and phone/Skype. Meeting up physically can be arranged but is not included in the costs.
