Virtual accreditation

What is the virtual accreditation?

The virtual accreditation delivers the same rich learning experience as the face-to-face session, from the comfort of your home office and follows the same four-day agenda.

It’s been designed to maximise engagement and learning quality by following best practice virtual delivery methods. Learners will get the full benefit of video conferencing technology, interactive activities and facilitator-led content to give them the confidence and expertise they need to deliver their own sessions.

  • Greater flexibility of delivery options, including dates, locations and timescales

  • More sustainable method for delivery of large scale programmes over time

  • The ability to weave Insights Discovery into existing or new learning programmes

  • Practitioners have access to further development and upskilling, as well as delivery and application support from Insights


Take a look at some of the most common questions about the virtual IDA and let us know if we've forgotten something!

How much is it to attend a virtual IDA?

Attending a virtual Insights Discovery Accrediation (IDA) is usually part of a wider business solution. Please contact us for costings or discuss the IDA with your own Insights representative.

How many spaces are available in a virtual IDA?

The virtual IDA is limited to 12 delegates to ensure that the learning experience maximises engagement and learning for the group. We want to create a virtual experience that is as impactful and rich as the face-to-face IDA which we take beyond the learning to building relationships and community within the IDA group.

The learning schedule takes place over 4 days. Days 1 – 3 are from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Day 4 is from 9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Days 1-3 are 8 hours in duration with 6 hours of in-room learning and Day 4 is 5.5 hours with 4.5 hours of in-room learning. To ensure we provide the most approachable learning experience, we include 30-minute morning and afternoon breaks and 60-minute lunch breaks.

Here’s what some of our customers are saying about the virtual IDA

It was interactive, packed full of brilliant content and an absolute pleasure to be part of. So much information and that’s only just scratching the surface, with so many more resources now available to me as a practitioner. I can’t wait to get going with it and using it with my stakeholders to help them in so many different ways.

Lyndsey Devereux, Learning & Development Business Partner

I just graduated from the session and want you to know it was outstanding. The virtual delivery works!

Receiving the IDA through a virtual delivery option worked really well. Two weeks on, I have already delivered my own first virtual session.
