Why participate in a SMETA Foundation Workshop?

The purpose of this SMETA Foundation Workshop is to familiarise participants with the:

  • SMETA Best Practice Guidance

  • Report and CAPR

and to inform participants on how the Sedex resources can support the SMETA audit.

It will not be teaching participants how to conduct a social audit and for this reason, participants must pre-qualify for the workshop with proof of some social auditing experience.

Course Summary

It is also designed for staff working in Social Compliance, Ethical Trade or Technical roles who wish to improve their knowledge of SMETA methodology.
