IRLA Academy: Enhancing professionalism through the delivery of high quality, accredited technical educational briefings and seminars.

The IRLA Academy has produced accredited, high quality and cost effective technical training for a number of years. We have been lucky enough to have had three past ambassadors who were totally committed to building upon each others legacy to create what we have today.


The purpose of the IRLA Academy is to deliver high quality technical insurance and reinsurance briefings and seminars as part of its members’ individual personal development programmes. They will be relevant to all IRLA members who need to conform to Continuing Professional Developments standards and will be delivered mainly in London, but will also be available to members nationally and internationally. The IRLA Academy programme has accreditation from the CII and is supported by the FCA and PRA.

Delivery Structure


It is proposed that the work of the IRLA Academy will be delivered under the supervision of Leslie-Ann Giovnilli (Secretariat/AMS), who will work closely with a membership focus group to create the annual programme wish list. This will then be distilled and managed through the following distinct approaches to training and be available to members of IRLA.

  1. Quarterly relevant technical and/or topical briefings at both a highly technical and young professional level, open to all members free of charge. The four annual YPG Link and Learn sessions, created and managed by the YPG Committee will also be in addition to the main Academy programme.  As an introduction to the Academy IRLA anticipates running 3 free Introduction courses per year for all new staff members of association companies.
  2. There will also be a relevant technical programme covering market issues that will take the format of either half day workshops or full day training sessions. These will comprise of 6 courses and will be open to members and non-members at a charge for delivery of the programme, (with a considerable discount to members).

Any surplus (£) achieved annually is to be invested into the delivery and development of future programmes for the benefit of the members.

Diversity & Inclusion

We will foster an inclusive working environment where difference is embraced and where people feel valued and respected. We incorporate equality into our core objectives, making every effort to eliminate discrimination, create equal opportunities and develop good working relationships between different people.
