Social Impact Management Training

You want to learn how to use the data you collect to make decisions on your activities? You are not new to impact measurement, but you need more information to be able to use it? 

Or maybe you have an impact measurement system, but you want to improve it in order to manage your portfolio without burdening too much your investees?

Then join us for EVPA’s second edition of the Social Impact Management Training!

The EVPA’s training course is based on the Social Impact Measurement European Standard.*
Social impact measurement is a fundamental part of the work of each social investor as you need to measure the impact you are generating to better use your resources.

The two-day training is designed to give you the basics of social impact measurement and management, a concrete expertise in using the right tools and to help you navigate the impact management space. During the workshop you will:

- a practical understanding of impact measurement frameworks and their implementation, both at the social enterprise and at the venture philanthropy/social investor level; 

- an alignment with the standard impact measurement process agreed upon at the European level;

- an approach to revise your own investments’ impact measurement system, to manage for greater impact;

- a dedicated and exclusive resource pack of guides, templates, and practical examples;

- a new network of peers and like-minded professionals across sectors;

- the EVPA Training Academy participation certificate.

Watch Jeremy Nicholls, CEO of Social Value UK, outlining the importance of impact measurement for the Venture Philantrhopy (VP)/Social Investment sector (SI), the opportunities and practical ways to do impact measurement well.

*  Impact measurement is a key component of the venture philanthropy and social investment model and has been a focal point of EVPA’s research and knowledge-building in the past years. EVPA had a leader role in the work of the European Commission’s GECES – a consultative multi-stakeholder group on social business set up in 2012 and due to exist until 2018 - and its Sub-group on Social Impact Measurement- to agree on a European standard in the area of impact measurement. The impact measurement standard is designed to be applicable across Europe – for social enterprises as well as for public and private funders of social enterprise - is informed by EVPA’s Practical Guide; a resource that distils best practice in impact measurement into five easy-to-understand steps to implement impact measurement.
