Support and Resources During COVID-19
This page is a place to collate everything going on to assist us all to get through the COVID-19 pandemic. Below you’ll find work going on by Social Value UK and Social Value International, as well as resources from within our network and other resources we think you may find useful.
Social Value UK Support
Social Value UK is hosting weekly Ideas Exchanges, these are online discussions taking place on Zoom on Fridays. These are entirely free for members and non-members. Find out what’s coming up and register here.
Social Value UK is offering a range of distance learning options:
OPTION 1) Online Accredited Practitioner Training costing £500 + VAT
We will be delivering our most popular training course; Social Value and SROI Accredited Practitioner training online. Over a 4 week period, this course will cover all of the same content as the 2 day course, delivered through 1 hr sessions of online delivery and group webinar sessions. This is more contact time than takes place on the physical 2 day course and will include some 1-2-1 mentoring.
The next online course will begin on 6th June and will be running for 3 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).
