How do I know I am creating positive social value?
We’re all in this sector to make a positive impact, but how do you know whether you’re actually achieving that goal?
Social Value and Social Return on Investment (SROI) is an internationally recognised framework for understanding, measuring and valuing social, economic and environmental outcomes.
SVA runs a two-day internationally accredited training course that unpacks Social Value and SROI.
What will you get out of it?
- An understanding of the background and philosophy behind Social Value
- The ability to understand, measure and value outcomes
- Knowledge of how to apply these principles in your organisation so you can prove and improve your impact
- All course materials and suggested readings
- A free 12-month individual mhttp://simna.com.au/embership to the Social Impact Measurement Network of Australia (SIMNA) so you can continue your professional development in impact measurement
Why do the training with us?
Get real-world experience and apply your learning from day one
This is not a dry ‘stand and deliver’ type of training – throughout the two days you will be learning as you apply the principles to real-life examples and sharing insights with your fellow trainees, who are just as passionate about impact measurement as you.
Previous participants have applied their new knowledge and understanding immediately to different aspects of their work, from strategy to operational matters.
Learn from leaders in the field and enjoy yourself at the same time
The training is led by Simon Faivel. Simon is the Founding Chair of the Social Impact Measurement Network of Australia (SIMNA), and co-Chair of Social Value International (SVI). Leading SVA’s work on Social Value and SROI, Simon has started, owned and operated two companies, and sits on the Board of Directors at Flying Fox, a charity providing opportunities for young people with disability.
Simon not only brings a wealth of experience and depth of knowledge to the course, but an infectious enthusiasm for the topic and a passion for the for-purpose sector to better understand, measure and value the impact of our work. We ask past attendees to tell us their favourite thing about the course and the most frequent response is Simon’s engaging and interactive presentation style.
Expand your perspective and grow your network
Our training consistently draws participants from a broad range of backgrounds. We hear from past attendees how beneficial this diversity of experience was for their learning and how they valued applying their learning alongside colleagues from across different sectors.
