Testimonials

Learning Needs Analysis - Online Self-paced

A great experience and well worth investing the time. The feedback was exceptional - really clear and always delivered this within 24 hours of submission. This really helped keep me motivated throughout the course as I knew I wouldn't have to wait long to receive any feedback before moving onto the next module. Thank you for providing such an enjoyable working/learning environment.

Training Delivery - Online Self-paced

Very enjoyable, very well supported with excellent turnaround of my assignments and valuable feedback. Everyone was most helpful. The feedback was fair and accurate and at no point did I feel the course was just an attendance or tick-box exercise. The feedback was always about something that I needed to improve on. I'll be able to deliver training to a higher standard now that I am more aware of the different ways to use questioning.

Excellent and the fact that I was able to do this online allowed me to do this whilst working overseas and also use my overseas students as part of my assessed training delivery. Many thanks for the dedication and professionalism shown by all staff with whom I have corresponded in the last 3 months.

Really informative, engaging and relevant to my role. Really enjoyed the week. Was very daunted by it at the start but by Wednesday end of the day it was falling into place and I felt far more relaxed. Really effective methodology. Also had a great group to learn with.

The British Institute for Learning & Development aligns membership to TAP Qualifications

 

The British Institute for Learning & Development (the BILD), the Awarding Body for all TAP Certificates and Diplomas, has announced that from 1st Oct 2015 all applicants for professional grades of BILD membership will be required to hold a TAP Qualification.

Explains BILD Chair David Apparicio:

"The BILD has long been driven by the aspiration to see a career in L&D recognised as a genuine ‘Profession'.  Today, the critical capability demanded of every organisation is the capacity to learn and change faster than the competition, to become a genuine ‘learning organisation'. This makes the professionalising of learning a more urgent imperative than ever before.'

‘The BILD believes that, as with all other recognised professions, L&D practitioners should be required to meet a common standard of professional practice, evidenced by appropriate Certification.  Until recent years, this has not been possible to achieve, given the wide range of subjective certification schemes available.  Membership of the BILD, therefore, as with other L&D Institutes, was open to applicants holding a disparate range of qualifications. This of course meant that the BILD post-nominal letters could not guarantee consistent and reliable professional practice'.

‘With the advent of the Training Accreditation Programme in 1998 the seeds were planted for the genuine professionalising of an L&D career.  For the first time, objective assessable models (recognised by a Queen's Award for Innovation) underpinned all L&D roles, enabling consistent standards of professional practice.'

‘The Board of the BILD has observed first-hand the widespread, employer-led adoption of TAP in recent years, with some 1,400 organisations across all strands of the private and public sectors now employing more than 25,000 Certified L&D professionals. 

We have concluded that this groundswell of commitment to best-practice standards now enables the Institute to progress its key objective of professionalising a career in L&D.  By requiring all applicants for BILD membership from 1st Oct 2015 to hold a TAP Certificate or Diploma, the BILD post-nominal letters will become a guarantee of best-practice."

 

 

The Training Foundation's CEO
Nick Mitchell
 welcomed the news;

"This forward-thinking announcement demonstrates the BILD's passionate commitment to truly making Learning & Development a genuine profession.

The whole 30-strong TAP team at The Training Foundation shares that passion. These are indeed exciting times for the whole training community and I encourage all to join the BILD and help us achieve our common objective."
