"Imparta is committed to helping our clients deliver training fit for the digital age and the learning preferences of millennials, and with the Virtual Sales Academy, we have reimagined sales training in a way that is lower cost than face-to-face training, but much more engaging and effective than traditional e-learning."

LPI Accredited

Imparta was delighted to receive Learning Provider Accreditation in March 2015, following a detailed assessment by the Learning and Performance Institute. 

The Learning and Performance Institute is a leading industry authority and global institute for Learning and Development professionals, focusing on recognising the skills and professional status of individuals and organisations engaged in learning activities, and assessing the quality of learning services. “Being awarded Learning and Performance Institute accreditation is a great achievement for any organisation.  LPI Accreditation epitomises trust, integrity and quality.  Organisations that carry the logo have proven themselves to be leaders in the field of Learning and Development,” says the Learning and Performance Institute. “Accredited organisations carrying the logo have passed a rigorous independent accreditation process which examines every aspect of an organisation's involvement in learning and related services.”

Yr 3 - Key Performance Indicators for
Imparta Ltd

The accreditation process involved an in-depth audit that focused on key elements that underpin Imparta’s service proposition, namely:

  • Business integrity
  • Learning and Development performance
  • Learning and Development staff
  • Pre-learning activities and outputs
  • Learning processes, interventions and tools
  • Learning environment
  • Post intervention and ongoing learning processes

“Our accreditation standards are the main reason why organisations can choose institute accredited companies with confidence – our accreditation process makes it easier for companies to find the best providers.  Accredited Learning Provider status demonstrates that all employed trainers are appropriately qualified and that delivery methods, procedures, materials (including eLearning materials), quality of staff and the facilities of the learning provider are of a high standard,” states an Institute spokesperson.

Imparta is absolutely delighted not only to have been accredited, but also to have received such high scores when benchmarked against our peers.  In the current market conditions corporate buyers feel the risk of new relationships more than ever, and accreditation by the Learning and Performance Institute provides assurance for clients coming to us for the first time.

Following the accreditation audit, a detailed performance report was presented to Imparta by the Learning and Performance Institute, in which it stated, “The Accreditation Consultant was particularly impressed with the company’s focus on ensuring that its client organisations really do see an improvement in business performance and staff capability, and that they realise tangible return on their investment in Imparta’s services.”
