TAP – The Training Accreditation Programme

The Training Accreditation Programme (TAP) has been focused on professionalising Learning & Development, at both function and individual practitioner levels, since 1998.

Much more than a ‘train the trainer’ programme, TAP was recognised by a Queen’s Award for Enterprise Innovation in 2005. It is now an international standard, with some 1,400 organisations employing 27,000+ TAP-certified trainers in more than 30 Countries.

The Training Foundation is a leading provider of Learning and Development Qualifications.

Offering a number of certificated courses leading to a diploma, The Training Foundation has a unique position in the L&D industry of being able to offer everything for all L&D professionals. The BILD is the recognised awarding body for TAP qualifications.
