QinetiQ, KBR and PA Consulting to work together on Programme to Deliver Transformative Next-Gen Collective Training to the British Army

QinetiQ, KBR and PA Consulting have formed Team Paladin to compete for the British Army’s upcoming Collective Training Transformation Programme (CTTP). CTTP is designed to deliver an integrated, expeditionary and digitalised Future Collective Training System (FCTS), allowing the Army to train globally where and when it needs. The system will be underpinned by a mutually beneficial relationship with a strategic training partner from industry.

Team Paladin is well positioned to work with the British Army and broader industry to prepare for FCTS. By drawing on the team’s collective expertise and experience in delivering programmes of global scale and complexity, designing and integrating collective training capability, and implementing digital and data-driven transformative solutions for defence customers, Team Paladin is looking to bring together the best of industry to transform the British Army’s collective training enterprise, improve the experience of soldiers and commanders, and adapt training at the speed of relevance to address global demands.

Christina Balis, Global Campaign Director for Training & Mission Rehearsal at QinetiQ said, “Building a long-term trusted relationship with the British Army starts with forming a strong, cohesive industry team that combines the right capabilities, collaborative behaviours and long-term commitment to the programme. We are delighted to be joining forces with KBR and PA as we look to jointly build the future Army-Industry team that will deliver greater flexibility, adaptability and innovation in land collective training.”

Geoff Maple, Strategic Development Director for the Land Environment at KBR said, “Alongside the British Army, KBR is proud to be developing the future of collective training by bringing the best capability to bear together with QinetiQ and PA. In support of the British Army, our joint team will deliver the most collaborative solutions that industry can offer. Building on our joint global scale, experience of the Front Line, dedicated collective training and data-driven approaches, we will offer soldier-focused support to the future of the British Army’s collective training.”

Paul Finley, Public Sector Defence Lead for PA Consulting said, “Supporting the ongoing modernisation of defence is at the heart of PA’s commitment to securing a positive human future. Collective training is a crucial element of ensuring military readiness to counter the threats of the future, and we are delighted to join QinetiQ and KBR to support modernisation and transformation of collective training. We are excited by the opportunity to bring end-to-end innovation, a wealth of sector expertise and our disruptive digital and data capabilities, in support of the British Army’s vision of future collective training needs.”

The Strategic Training Partner for the programme is expected to be in place in 2025. During the next two years, Team Paladin, in collaboration with broader industry, will refine and tailor their offering to meet the ever-evolving requirements of the British Army for a flexible and data-driven collective training capability.
