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.
