Social Value UK are proud to announce that our member, Yuhei Inoue has achieved Level One Associate Practitioner status.
Ahead of this announcement, we spoke to Yuhei about his experience with the assessment process…
Why have you decided to undertake the Social Value International Practitioner Pathway?
I have decided to undertake the Social Value International Practitioner Pathway to expand my knowledge on social impact assessment and management and apply the Principles of Social Value to my academic research on the social impact of sport organisations, events, and programmes.
What did you learn and find useful from this assessment process?
Through the assessment process, I was able to gain a more in-depth understanding of how the framework of SROI works as well as key principles and procedures that we must follow to undertake an SROI analysis.
Now that you are a Level 1 Associate Practitioner what do you plan to do next to develop your practice? How do you plan to use your practitioner skills?
I am planning to conduct an SROI analysis for my academic research on the social impact of sport. I am also considering applying for Level 2 Accredited Practitioner or Level 3 Advanced Practitioner status in the coming years.
Are there any specific projects or activities you are doing at the moment that are related to SROI/social value?
My colleagues and I have recently completed an SROI analysis for the Rugby Football League in England, in which we found an SROI ratio of £3.39:1 for its Disability Rugby League programmes. The full report can be accessed here.
You have now joined a community of practice around the globe. What does this mean to you and why do you want to participate and contribute to the development of the methodology and overall social value movement?
Being a part of this community of practice means that by working with like-minded practitioners I can engage in a collective effort to make our society healthier, more inclusive and sustainable. I am particularly keen to apply the Principles of Social Values to the sport field and contribute to the development of assessment methodologies and tools that can optimise the social impact of sport organisations, events, and programmes.
“I am very excited to have become a Level 1 Associate Practitioner with Social Value
International. I am keen to apply the Principles of Social Values to the sport field and
help sport organisations, events, and programmes across the world to manage and
optimise their social impact.” – Yuhei Inoue
