Social Auditor Workshop

Wednesday 8th July, 2020     10.00am – 12 noon via ZOOM meetings

For further information and to book on this training, please following this link

 Please note that we have split our usual Social Audit Workshop into two parts:

  • Online theoretical workshop (8th July)
  • Practical session – mock Social Audit Panel – date to be confirmed. This will allow all trainee auditors to experience the SAN Social Audit Panel process, using a set of social accounts submitted by one of our partners. We are hoping to schedule this event once it is safe to provide face to face learning.

The fee charged covers both sessions.


PIA Workshops

We will launch our new online training plan soon


Prove, Improve and Account 

Prove, Improve and Account (PIA) Workshops are aimed at people who wish to understand the Four Step social accounting process either in order to facilitate the process with social economy organisations or to use it within their own organisation. The cost will be £375 including a copy of the social accounting and audit guide & CD. (If you already have a manual & CD the cost is £350). The Workshop will go through the Four Step process in detail from the perspective of a facilitator/trainer.

Social Auditor Workshops

Social Audior Workshops are aimed specifically at those people wishing to become SAN approved Social Auditors. Participants should have sound prior knowledge and/or experience of the social accounting and audit process either by having used it for their own or another organisation or by having attended one of SAN's two-day PIA or similar SAN recognised training. The cost of the Social Auditor Workshop is £150.

SAN is able to deliver training over shorter periods and can also deliver training in measuring social impact.

SAN can tailor training for organizations. Please contact us direct or your Regional Co-ordinator.
