AgileDS® Foundation virtual

Our virtual courses give you all the benefits and interactivity of classroom learning, but from the comfort of your own home.

About the course

Agile Digital Services (AgileDS) provides a consistent approach, common language and a skilled workforce for the successful design, delivery and evolution of digital service. The AgileDS guidance is aligned to the Service Manual of Government Digital Service, the UK Government’s department responsible for digital transformation.

By the end of the Foundation-level qualification you should have sufficient knowledge and understanding of the Agile Digital Services guidance
to be able to recognise and distinguish between the key elements of the approach.

What is virtual classroom training?

ILX’s virtual instructor-led training combines the personal teaching experience of a classroom, with the ease and flexibility of a virtual environment. Our virtual courses are interactive and engaging, allowing participants to communicate with both the instructor and each other in a collaborative manner.


This is an intensive three-day course that prepares you for the AgileDS Foundation examination. The training is conducted via a virtual training environment. You need to ensure that you can satisfy the technical requirements that can be found on our website here.
