New ownership, new leadership, continued innovation!


Further to the recent press release announcing the acquisition of The Training Foundation (TTF) by QA Ltd, this news bulletin outlines the key benefits to TTF clients.

TTF will continue to operate as a stand-alone business within the QA Group providing skills-based, assessable TAP® development programmes to trainers, their managers and subject matter experts; plus, the NextGen Leadership programme for managers. TTF clients can expect the same world-class delivery and service as you have always enjoyed.

In addition to delivering programmes at the University of Warwick Science Park, Coventry and client’s sites around the globe, TTF now have access to over 20 QA training centres throughout the country to deliver publicly-scheduled or closed events, making TTF’s double Queen’s Award – winning programmes even more accessible to current and future clients. These additional locations include training delivery suites in all major cities across the UK.

TTF clients can also expect continued investment and innovation in products and services through the power and presence of the QA business, in particular its rich capability in digital and distance learning. Watch this space for even more from the TTF team soon!

TTF’s Founder and past Chairman, Nick Mitchell, has taken this milestone event as an opportunity to retire and the current MD will continue to take the business forward.

Adrian Stokes, Managing Director: “Having devoted nearly 20 years of my career to Learning & Development and the past three and a half years to TTF, I remain absolutely committed to, and passionate about, the improvements we continue to make to the lives of thousands of L&D professionals, managers and consequently millions of employees who benefit from much improved learner-centred, effective and quality skills development. I look forward to continuing to drive forward new innovations and developments, particularly in the digital L&D space, making TAP® programmes even more effective and accessible to our clients”.

Jeff Barnes, Executive Director QA Ltd Learning, will provide strategic direction of The Training Foundation within the QA Group.  Jeff says “I am delighted to see The Training Foundation join the QA family.  TTF has a fantastic heritage and history in delivering outstanding Learning and Development solutions.  This capability perfectly complements the education that QA provides to professional communities across both the public and private sector.  I expect customers of both QA and The Training Foundation to massively benefit from the combined businesses”.
