Overview of course:

Our 2-day practitioner training provides a thorough overview of SROI from two main angles.

Day one is a practical, step-by-step introduction to the SROI process, beginning with some theory and going onto the hands-on development of an impact map – the heart of the SROI process – and exploration of appropriate real life examples. The main topics covered on day one are: background and theory, scope and stakeholders, mapping outcomes, evidencing outcomes, valuing outcomes, establishing value and the value calculation.

Day two covers more in depth theoretical issues behind SROI including valuation techniques and overclaiming, as well as discussing examples of best practice at different levels of rigour and for different audiences. Day two looks at: types and sources of valuation (including financial proxies and various valuation techniques), overclaiming, deadweight, displacement, attribution, future value and transparency. There will also be information about reporting and about the assurance and accreditation service offered by Social Value UK. The training ends with an overview of useful resources available to help anyone who is interested in measuring social value.

Both training days will be dominated by practical exercises, going through all the principles and processes of an SROI analysis.

With this in mind, we ask all participants before they come to training to think about an organisation or project that they would like to try and consider the social return on. Points for consideration are:

  • The activities of the organisation/project
  • The change that occurs as a result of these activities

All training is delivered by Social Value UK Accredited SROI Practitioners and is suitable for any experience level.
