Social & Ethical Accountability Systems - Introduction & Awareness Training Course (On-site)

My Offerings


This course is an introduction for anyone involved in the development, implementation and management of a social accountability system based on SA 8000, SMETA or the ETI Basecode.

The course will benefit those planning to complete other social systems training, for internal auditing and the Lead Auditor Training Course, as it provides a strong basis of knowledge and understanding of Social Standards upon which to build auditing skills.

These courses comprise lectures and workshop exercises.

Running a standard or customised course at your premises allows you to shape the message and style of the presentation to suit the culture of your organisation. It is the most convenient and cost-effective solution if you wish to train a number of staff in the same location, or when confidentiality is an issue. Once we have agreed the dates and location for your training course, our experts work with you to identify and evaluate your learning objectives and to customise the course content to ensure they are met
