#2 edition: Social Impact Measurement and Management Online Course

EVPA and Social Value UK will help you learn how to maximise the impact you are generating. This course is especially designed to support the funders, venture philanthropy organisations and social investors (VPO/SI) in understanding how to measure and manage impact at the portfolio level.

Important message: Due to COVID-19, this course will take place virtually instead of in person. The second online edition of this engaging course is being organised due to high demand. Make sure to secure your seat now!

EVPA and Social Value UK will use their in-depth knowledge of the practice of social impact measurement and management to help you learn how to maximize the impact you are generating. Due to physical and travel restrictions related to COVID-19, we have adapted this training to a virtual course.

The start date of the course will be 23 June beginning with a 3-hour live session from 09:00 - 12:00 (CET). You will gain access to EVPA's Learning Management System (LMS) for this course. The LMS will support participants by providing readings and assignments for an additional 2 hours a week over the course of two weeks in total. Three further live sessions (one of three hours and two sessions of two hours each) will take place on 25 June (09:00-12:00, CET), 30 June (10:00-12:00 CET), and 2 July (10:00-12:00 CET). We will do our best to foster the most interactive and engaging online training, so you can get the most out of this learning experience.

EVPA is happy to offer all participants a 50% discount on the original training fee since the course has been converted into an online training. In addition, all members are entitled to a further discount of 50% and have the opportunity to apply for a scholarship.

This course is especially designed to support investors for impact, both foundations, social impact funds and other types of capital providers, in understanding how to measure and manage impact at the portfolio level.

If you are interested in:

  • understanding and measuring the impact you generate
  • improving your existing impact measurement system without burdening too much your investees/grantees
  • learning how to use the data you collect to take relevant decisions on your day-to-day activity and maximize the use of your resources

and you want to do it by:

  • learning through real-life case studies and group work
  • discussing openly with experienced practitioners
  • sharing challenges and learnings with your peers

then the Social Impact Measurement and Management Training is the course for you!
