TAP's Global Director for the Policing sector appointed at The Training Foundation


The Training Foundation is delighted to announce the appointment of David Annets as TAP Global Director for the Policing sector.  David joins with over 30 years in Policing, the last four of which were spent in Learning & Development associated with the College of Policing, Ryton where he delivered senior management & leadership programmes across the globe.

David first became aware of the Training Accreditation Programme after personally attending two TAP L&D professional skills courses. Along with colleagues at the College of Policing, David was impressed by TAP's flexible, modular approach to enabling quality-assured training.  He particularly noted TAP's unique recognition by a Queen’s Award for Innovation, its links with the British Institute for Learning and Development (which recognises TAP for professional Membership) and the wide range of skills courses offered.

Recently retired from Policing after an illustrious career at DCI level, David served in key roles with Hampshire Constabulary, Strathclyde Police and the Association of Chiefs of Police (Terrorism and Allied Matters). In recent years he delivered Senior Leadership training with the College of Policing and was the National Contact Point for the European Police College (CEPOL), the European Agency with responsibility for training senior police leaders throughout Europe.  With CEPOL, David was the Course Director in the UK for training designed to improve the capability and capacity of counter-terrorism response at both a Strategic and Operational level for all 28 Member States and Associated Countries, and for improving systems of European Police cooperation. 

David was also engaged on an international platform as an International Policing Advisor.  He was the lead tutor for the Pacific Islands Senior Leadership Programme at Royal New Zealand Police College, Wellington. In America, David was the Course Director for Senior Leadership Seminars on behalf of the New Jersey State Association of Chiefs of Police. He has recently returned from Qatar where he delivered foundation leadership training for the College of Policing to Police Lieutenants at the Police Training Institute.

David commented "I am delighted to be joining such a professional team at a time when TAP is becoming a de facto standard across many sectors. I wouod be pleased to discuss any development proposals being considered throughout the Policing sector."

The Training Foundation's Nick Mitchell commented; "It speaks volumes for TAP's growing reputation that such such senior L&D Professionals as David are now joining us on the TAP journey.  I personally very much look forward to welcoming him to the team and seeing TAP's presence strengthen across the policing sector, at home and abroad."
