Course outline

This training course is designed to be taken as 2 days together, and provides training to a level suitable for trainees seeking to become accredited practitioners. It is designed as the first step for individuals considering doing an SROI. No prior experience is required.

DAY 1 is a practical, step-by-step introduction to the SROI process. We’ll begin with some theory but the process is best learnt by trying it, so trainees will learn how to develop an impact map – the heart of the SROI process – and explore the processes using an example appropriate to each trainee.

DAY 2 covers, through group exercises and discussion, issues that practitioners will need to demonstrate an understanding of if they wish to become accredited. Although designed with the assurance process in mind, this course is suitable for anyone wanting more than just an introduction to SROI. Contending issues will be discussed, best practice and techniques shared and examples explored.

Training does not guarantee accreditation, but is a necessary step towards becoming an accredited practitioner. To become a SROI practitioner, accredited by Social Value International (formerly The SROI Network International), you need to have:

–     Completed this training
–     Completed a SROI analysis; and
–     Become a member of Social Value International

Please note that there is an additional fee for assurance. You can see the Assurance Application process here:http://www.thesroinetwork.org/sroi-analysis/assurance

What’s SROI?

SROI is an approach to understanding and managing the impacts of a project, organization or policy. It is based on stakeholders and uses financial value of the important impacts identified by stakeholders to identify what is important to them.

It is a framework to structure thinking and understanding. It’s a story not a number. The story should show how you understand the value created, manage it and can prove it. The benefits of SROI include:

–    A consistent and clear approach to understanding and reporting on the changes caused by an organization; resulting in:
–    Better organizations, with better strategies, systems and accountability; and
–    Organizations that are more able to manage risks, identify opportunities and raise finance required to achieve their mission or strategy.
