Online Services During COVID-19

During this challenging time, with many of us working remotely, Social Value UK would like to highlight three options for you to continue your professional development with us. We have a range of online resources, training and qualifications meeting the Social Value International standards for accounting for value!

For anyone who has lost their job due to the COVID-19 outbreak we can offer the first two offers free of charge. Please get in touch with enquiries about this.

OPTION 1) Social Value International Practitioner Package and Level 1: Associate Practitioner 

The Practitioner Package is a dedicated online learning platform that will guide you, step-by-step, through an SROI or Social Impact Report. This package is designed to offer practical support for anyone developing their social impact practice.  

It contains a library of resources including templates for data collection and reporting and a series of introductory training videos that help practitioners to prepare for the online exam to become an Associate Practitioner with SVI.  

The Associate Practitioner application usually costs £300, but for a limited time, we will be offering the Practitioner Package AND Level 1 application together for £300. Find out more about the Practitioner Package here, and about the Practitioner Pathway here

OPTION 2) Online Accredited Practitioner Training costing £300 + VAT

We will be testing online delivery of our most popular training course; Social Value and SROI Accredited Practitioner training.  This course will cover all of the same content as the 2 day course in person, over 6 online sessions lasting 3 hours each, this is more contact time than takes place in person and will include some 1-2-1 mentoring.

Starting on 26th of March and running for 6 weeks. 

This Course and Accreditation

Anyone wishing to become an SROI Accredited Practitioner will need to have attended all of this course. Training does not include or guarantee accreditation, but is a necessary step towards becoming an accredited practitioner. Find out more about Social Value & SROI Accreditation (additional costs apply).

As this is a beta-testing we are offering a reduced rate of £300 + VAT

Please register your interest here

OPTION 3) Remote Mentoring costing £2250 + VAT, with discounts available for members

The SROI 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 reporting in five mentoring steps.

Practical Training

Social Value and SROI Practitioner Refresher Training

If you’ve already been on the two day Social Value and SROI Practitioner Training but would like a refresh, you can pay a reduced price to attend one of the practitioner refresher training sessions.

Maximising Value Training

Organisations are increasingly recognising the need to do more than measure social value and move to a position where decisions can be taken to maximise their social value. Are you a social impact manager, finance director, senior manager, or commissioner? Do you work in an organisation looking at how social value evidence can help you to make decisions? Social Value UK can provide you with the practical skills to improve how you do this.

Social Value UK can facilitate practical, hands on training for:

People who actively engage with data in their job
People who gather data for their organisation about their impact
Social Impact Managers
Finance Directors, people with a role in their Senior Management Team and those who make strategic decisions based on data.

If the above applies to you and you are keen to focus on managing and maximising social value, this course will enable you to make immediate practical changes to achieve your goal.

We can offer you a one-day interactive workshop that will equip you with practical skills. The workshop is suitable for all levels of decision makers and those that contribute to the management of social impact.
Using practical examples and data, the workshop will identify:

  • the questions that need to be asked
  • how to develop effective engagement strategies
  • how to analyse data to make immediate practical changes to achieve your goal.

Maximising Value Online Training

Join the growing number of organisations that recognise the importance of accounting for social value. Social Value UK have developed a brand-new course that can help you embed the Social Value Principles.

Work with experts to develop the skills and systems you need to measure, manage and maximise the impact of your work.
This is your opportunity to apply your learning to your own organisation and receive support and feedback each week that helps you create your own tailored system for maximising social value.

Delivered online over 5 weeks, the course will take you from the fundamentals of how and why to measure social value, to the ability to use evidence from your stakeholders to make decisions that increases the impact of your work.

Each week an interactive online workshop will examine and work through the key practical issues with you.

Course start date coming soon.
