Professional Training:
Social Value and Impact Management

Why should I join an Accredited Training program?

There is an increasing demand for impact management skills.

Globally, we are seeing there is a growing need from organisations who recognise how important it is to measure and manage the impacts of their activities and investments – and this means you need to be able to demonstrate your capabilities as a recognised and skilled practitioner.

There is also a global demand for a more equitable society and sustainable environment .

To achieve a more sustainable and equitable society that can truly work towards the Sustainable Development Goals, we need to effectively measure and manage the impacts of our activities – and this means making decisions that take account of effects on people and the planet and having the skills, systems, and structures to do so.

Whether you work for a social enterprise, NGO, a for-profit organisation, invest to create impacts, or simply want to learn more about how to manage impacts and create social value, our programs can provide you with the skills and recognition needed!

There are currently two training programs that meet the SVI Accredited Standard – the Social Value and SROI Practitioner Course (developed by Social Value UK) and the Social Impact Management: Applying the Principles of Social Value Training Course (developed in collaboration between Efiko Academy and SVI).

Both of these training programs meet the accreditation standard set out by SVI, demonstrating alignment with the Social Value Principles and international best-practice for social value and impact measurement and management.

Why impact management must be improved?

According to the latest annual survey of the GIIN (Global Impact Investing Network), the greatest challenges ahead cited by impact practitioners are impact washing and the inability to demonstrate and compare impact results.

It goes without saying that without a proper system to measure social and environmental impact, positive or negative, we cannot hold organisations accountable for their actions.

In this reasoning, impact measurement is a means to an end. Organisations of all sizes that take their social or environmental impact seriously should excel in designing a compelling impact strategy, measuring results that matter and generating powerful reports to show accountability and improve decision-making.
