Police Forces Community Academy


Who are we?
The British Training Board (TBTB) is the UK’s only police skills translation service. It works with a range of accredited awarding bodies to create efficient mechanisms for individuals to gain full credit for training they have completed in the military, which can be translated into qualifications recognised in civilian life by potential employers.
Some qualifications can easily be transferred without additional work. An exam or recorded discussion is required in some instances, but the system means individuals avoid having to repeat many weeks or months of training they have already completed.
With TBTB, you can receive credit for the skills and experience you already have, whatever your background, eliminating the need to complete unnecessary training.

Our story
The British Training Board (TBTB) was set up by Antony and Adrian Rabey, brothers and business partners. They both served in the Royal Logistic Corp in the British Army for a combined 44 years. Their time in the army saw them assigned to many theatres of operation and were active as trainers and mentors in many military training environments. They both completed their careers in army recruiting teams.
Upon leaving the forces, the brothers identified a gap in the market for a company able to translate military qualifications into civilian ones. They therefore formed TBTB to help individuals gain full credit for training they have completed in the military for use in civilian life. TBTB was also set up, helping to provide training and qualifications to individuals to enhance or gain new skills in many different sectors.
The company is proud to function as a social enterprise, helping to support individuals as well as businesses to build upon their talent, enhance growth and drive consistent performance to achieve success.
