QinetiQ (I/ITSEC booth 1370), KBR (booth 2308) 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.

Team Paladin is looking 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 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, “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.”


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.
