What does the course cover?Trainer profile

Day 1 is a practical, step-by-step introduction to the SROI process. We will begin with some theory, but the process is best learnt by trying it, so candidates will learn how to develop an impact map – the heart of the SROI process – and explore appropriate real life examples.

Day 2 covers in depth, more theoretical issues behind SROI including valuation techniques and counterfactuals, as well as discussing examples of best practice at different levels of rigour.

Other UK SROI Practitioner Training

SROI Training provided by NEF Consultingnef consulting

The SROI methodology was originally developed in the UK by the New Economics Foundation (NEF). NEF Consulting, founded and owned by the New Economics Foundation, offers a wide range of SROI products, including a 2-day SROI training course.

The course covers the methodology and practical guidance needed to carry out an SROI analysis to the highest standard. It includes a large practical element, allowing participants to undertake actual SROI workings and calculations and analyse their implications.

Since NEF Consulting first started delivering SROI training in 2009 we have received excellent feedback. 83% of 2014 participants said that, following our course, they felt confident to undertake an SROI analysis.

All courses are facilitated by SROI Accredited Practitioners and count towards accreditation as a practitioner. The courses are suitable to all levels of experience in evaluation.  We help participants to identify where their existing skills fit into the SROI process and build their confidence in new areas.  Special features include training in NEF’s measurement tools such as the National Accounts of Well-being and valuation techniques.

This is the only accredited course that incorporates building an SROI model on a spread sheet rather than as a paper and pen based exercise.

Participants leave the course knowing how best to apply what they have learned in their own setting so they can prove and improve the value they create.

NEF Consulting also runs bespoke training courses.

Upcoming 2017 Dates
