When any of our BILD members win an award, especially a major business award, we like to promote it! Winning an award is something that recognises the efforts and impact of a fantastic company, product or service.
This month we’re delighted to announce to our members that The Training Foundation has won the Queen’s Award for Innovation for a second time! The award was made for TAP®’s ‘Innovation in the Quality-Assurance of Learning & Development’.
The Queen’s Award has become recognised as the most prestigious business award in the UK. It is challenging for an organisation to win once but to receive the accolade for a second time is something very special indeed!
Sincere congratulations to our long term partners The Training Foundation and your team for all of your hard work and efforts!
Please find, immediately below, the full press release issued today by The Training Foundation . We are very pleased for them and it is an honour to be associated with an organisation that has such a major impact on the quality and effectiveness of the L&D profession.
For further information about TAP® and The Training Foundation, please feel free to call their Account Managers on 02476 411288
If you have something to contribute to the BILD Blog or BILD newsletter, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our award-winning programme, TAP® (the Training Accreditation Programme) has assisted more than 1,400 clients to improve their productivity and business performance through quality-assured training since 1998.
In 2005, HRH the Princess Royal presented the first Queen's Award for Innovation for TAP's objective best-practice training Standards.
The 2016 Award, conferred upon The Training Foundation, recognises how the TAP® Certified Assessor programmes are enabling employers to quality-assure their training practises to exacting TAP® Standards. This directly and positively impacts business performance.
We have developed a unique 3-step approach to Quality-Assured L&D - www.tap.training/3steps. This incorporates the core TAP® skills-based, objective training design and delivery methodologies; the quality-control TAP® Assessor programmes and a new innovative 'Learning Transfer' methodology (the MACRO model) that maximises the impact of training and therefore business performance improvement.
Today, more than half of the FTSE 100 and many hundreds of other major private and public sector employers are demanding TAP® for the skills development of their L&D teams.
To find out more about TAP®, MACRO and The Training Foundation's double Queen's Award - winning approach to Learning & Development, or arrange a meeting to discuss the development of your L&D team, contact our expert Account Managers on 02476 411288, or visit www.tap.training/qa 'live chat'.

Coaching and Mentoring
Coaching and mentoring have been forgotten cousins of the learning and development profession.There are many theories about why this might be, one of the main arguments for this is due to the proliferation of Life Coaches in the late 90’s and early 2000’s, but at the British Institute for Learning & Development we believe that coaching is an integral part of L&D.Coaching isn’t a new art,...
