Diplomas and Master Diplomas

Most clients choose TAP Diplomas in order to develop an L&D Career Pathway - a progressive approach to trainer skills development through individual TAP skills-based Certificates, specifically aligned to role need.

TAP Diplomas are made up of two Core Certificates (defined) and any two additional Certificates, Core or Elective (you choose) plus the Theoretical Basis of Learning online self-study certificate. 

There are two ways of achieving a TAP Diploma. Choose a recommended Diploma Pathway from our Skills Qualifications Framework based on your role (or named Diploma discipline i.e. Facilitation, Design etc) OR jump onto our Diploma Builder below to choose your own four certificates. The Diploma Builder will tell which Diploma your selections will earn.

If you are already working towards a Diploma Pathway from a previous TAP Skills Framework please note that we will honour that pathway. If you would like to discuss or revise your options, please contact your TAP Account Manager by clicking here to schedule a call.

Those of you who are interested in our highest level of L&D Professional Qualification may achieve this through the TAP ‘Master’ Diploma. These are made up of an initial TAP Diploma plus any four additional distinct TAP Certificates.

If you are interested in purchasing a TAP Diploma or Master Diploma, reduced fees will apply. Please talk to one of our dedicated Account Managers by clicking here to schedule a call.

Learning Facilitation Diploma

TAP Certificate in The Theoretical Basis of Learning

This self-study, online course (approx. 5-7 hours) is a core requirement of everyone undertaking the role-based TAP Diplomas.

We also recommend that all trainers complete this online course as 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.
