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.
