Introduction to SROI

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. These costs include 21 hours of remote contact (email, phone, Skype etc.) with a mentor.

Find out more here.

 If you have any further questions please contact info@socialvalueuk.org.

Our Introduction to SROI courses are designed for people who would like to know more about SROI and how it can help them. The Intro course can act as good preparation for the 2 day SROI Practitioner course, or as a standalone piece for people interested to know more about SROI.

The Intro course is delivered in three ways:

1. Live webinars

The online sessions are run as three two-hour webinars. Each session can be taken separately, however all three taken in order are a complete Introduction to SROI.

The interactive elements have been removed for the sake of continuity, but as a set, the webinars will still provide a good overview of the material from the webinars, including the Seven Principles of Social Value, how they can be applied, and why SROI is useful for a range of organisations.

The webinars can be rented for 30 days at £33.51 each, or all three for £89.36
