Click the links below to go to the relevant section:

We are now delivering our most popular training course online.

Online Social Value and SROI Practitioner Training covers all of the same content as our original two-day course, delivered through five sessions over two weeks with group webinars and assignments.

The course gives you the knowledge and tools necessary to measure and maximise the social value of your activities. So whether you’re a public body getting to grips with the Social Value Act, a charity measuring your impact and improving your services, or a private business looking at your triple bottom line, this training can help you. For more details about the benefits of social value, click here.

The online sessions will be live and interactive and, should you be unable to attend a session, will be made available for catch-up for a week after they have taken place. There are some live webinars and exercises scheduled that must be completed in a set time frame in order to receive your certificate of completion.

You will receive content that has been developed over 10 years, delivered by a Social Value International accredited trainer.

We also offer a View Only training option which, for a reduced price, allows you to attend training but excludes you from the interactive aspects of the course. Please click here for further details.

Attending Online Social Value and SROI Practitioner Training does not qualify you to be a Level 1 Associate Practitioner, Level 2 Accredited Practitioner, or Level 3 Advanced Practitioner.

This course is one of the essential requirements towards becoming a Level 2 Accredited Practitioner or Level 3 Advanced Practitioner as detailed on the SVI Practitioner Status Pathway page. Although not an essential requirement, applicants for Level 1 Associate Practitioner would benefit greatly from the knowledge gained through this course.

Please note that the cost of this course does not include any fees towards becoming a Level 1 Associate Practitioner, Level 2 Accredited Practitioner, or Level 3 Advanced Practitioner. More information can be found on the SVI Practitioner Status Pathway page.

If you have any queries about Assurance and Accreditation services provided by SVUK on behalf of SVI, please contact .

View Only Training

For a discounted price, the View Only option allows you to watch all the training sessions but excludes you from all of the interactive learning aspects of the course such as group discussions, access to some worked examples and templates, and coursework assignments with individual feedback on your work from the trainer.

The View Only option requires more solo study than the standard course as attendees are not able to interact with the trainer or the rest of the training cohort in the online classroom. It is ideal for those pressed for time, those using the course as a refresher of knowledge, or those that wish to learn more about Social Value & SROI, but without wanting to complete the interactive and practical elements of the training.

Please refer to the table below to get a full outline of what both training options consist of, and work out which is better for your needs.

The View Only option does still make you eligible to become an accredited or advanced practitioner although we strongly recommend the standard training option to achieve the necessary learning outcomes.
