Annual Review 2010-11

Shaping Talent in 2010-11 – Annual Review highlights

This year’s theme - Shaping Talent - reflects City & Guilds’ purpose to enable people and organisations to develop their skills for personal and economic growth. It also encapsulates our ongoing commitment to improving lives, business performance and the landscape for education both in the UK and across the world.

2010-11 was full of successes that underline how we are delivering on our purpose and leading the skills agenda. The Annual Review shows that in a period of challenging economic conditions, the traditional routes to learning, employment and career progression need to be challenged. We do this through a continued focus on working in partnership with key stakeholders, ranging from learners and employers to governments. Key highlights include:

Improving lives – read the inspirational and unique journeys of some of our learners from the UK and across the world, including a bursary award winner, Lion Awards winner and WorldSkills Gold medallist.

Improving business performance - through the work of City & Guilds for Business the Annual Review demonstrates how we’re helping to simplify the way that businesses develop their talent. Employer case-studies include our work with TfL, Barchester Healthcare, Asda and British Gas.

Improving the landscape – from our response to Professor Wolf’s review of vocational education to the launch of our Million Extra campaign to support the Government’s apprenticeships ambition, read how City & Guilds has worked hard to keep skills on the political agenda.
