The Training Foundation helps clients to achieve stepchange performance in two main ways. First, by professionalising the L&D function and enhancing the organisation's capability to learn. Also, by developing line managers' abilities to create high-trust relationships with their direct reports and build high-performance teams.
Our two development centres are located at the University of Warwick Science Park and we have completed assignments in 17 countries. We are passionate about people but are not tree-huggers: everything we do is designed, developed and delivered with performance improvement in mind. Making a difference is our key driver - you might like to read a personal message from founder and Chief Executive, Nick Mitchell.
From more than a decade working with many leading organisations, we have evolved innovative approaches to improving both organisational learning and team performance. Our services are used by more than 1,200 clients, ranging from Tesco to the NHS, from Oxford University to Leeds City Council, from Barclays to the MOD and from Rolls Royce to Specsavers.
In 2005 we were honoured to receive a Queen's Award for Innovation for our flagship TAP Learning System, the UK's leading L&D qualifications framework.
Our distinctive approach to employee engagement is set out in a white paper, The Rules of Engagement. Our focus is to help develop managers' engagement skills, the ability to bring out the best in people. The MAP Programme (Motivation Alignment Performance) helps them develop those skills.
We take our social responsibility seriously; more than 80,000 people have completed free online learning courses with our Ready for Work (for young people) and infection control (for NHS personnel) services.

“Employers face challenging times, but the biggest challenge may be an internal one. Organisations that are unable to fully engage the hearts and minds of their people will not survive. It may mean a cultural makeover for some."
Director of Engagement Programmes
“An organisation’s very survival depends on its ability to learn, adapt and innovate faster than the competition. In the global economy, harnessing the full potential of people is the critical activity”
Ron Mackrell, Director of the Partners Programme
