Enabling Quality Assured Learning and Development


A core objective of the BILD is to enable the quality assurance of Learning & Development.  That is also a key objective of our strategic partner, The Training Foundation, whose (TAP) has been uniquely recognised by a second Queen’s Award in 2016 for ‘Innovation in the Quality Assurance of Learning & Development’. 

The TAP Qualifications Framework is a unique and comprehensive suite of assessable Certificates and Diplomas, from training delivery, facilitation, design, eLearning, blended, L&D consultancy and L&D management through to Learning Transfer.

The Board of the British Institute was so impressed by the widespread adoption of the TAP skills framework by UK employers that in 2015 the decision was taken to align the Institute’s membership rules to TAP Qualifications.
