The Virtual Learning Environment

The Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), the IFoA’s online learning platform, relaunches to provide ‘powerful’ learning for the actuarial profession


An improved user experience 

The IFoA’s Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) has been relaunched on a new portal on the basis of your feedback to allow you to search, rank, and return to video learning, and to keep pace with the demands of the profession.

Non-member access

If you are not yet an IFoA member, you can create a guest account which will allow limited access to scan the site. Simply use this guest link to access the VLE, where you will be able to see a ‘Login as Guest’ button. Instructions on how to purchase video content can be found there.

If you are interested in becoming a member, you can find further information on our membership web page.

About the improvements

The VLE has long been the IFoA’s repository for video of events and the primary means by which members complete their continuing professional development (CPD), and it now hosts a bank of more than 1,000 items of original learning for the actuarial profession.

The rebuild offers an improved user experience, with re-categorised content, user ratings, and dashboards for tracking your progress and reviewing your achievements. This makes it easier to find and complete the learning you need to support your career.

Increasingly, the VLE will be powering sophisticated e-learning, such as the Climate and Sustainability Course, and live learning opportunities.
