The Theoretical Basis of Learning
The majority of trainers initially find their way into a training role because of their subject matter knowledge and expertise. This can mean that their practice is not based on a solid foundation: an understanding of how adults learn.
Every L&D professional needs to develop the ability to employ a varied mix of theoretical approaches that match their learners’ needs. An understanding of the mainstream theories is therefore essential and this extends to subject matter experts and line managers with training responsibilities.
Completing the course is a core requirement of everyone undertaking one of the role-based TAP Diplomas. It is also a component of the Certificate in Education & Training, the starter TAP qualification for new and inexperienced trainers.

What you can expect!
“I have thoroughly enjoyed doing the Theoretical self-study.
When completing this, it was easy to see how much I include in my delivery from all the TAP courses I have undertaken with you. I would like to thank all at
The Training Foundation for their guidance and support.
I would recommend this to any trainer who is thinking about doing a TAP Diploma, it really is worthwhile. Not only for what I am able to give to my learners but also that of my own
