Student course records

The City & Guilds Archive Services teams are experts at archiving, sorting, filing and finding certificates and syllabuses. So if you’ve lost your certificate, or you were in college in 1975 and you just want to know what the standard is today against the National Framework - then rest assured, our teams can help.

All the below services can be requested online using our application form

Please note that paper and email applications will no longer be accepted for archive search requests from learners.

Confirming your qualification 

As well as providing you with a new certificate, we can also confirm (on request), any City & Guilds qualification you may have received. This service is often required when you have a new job offer. We do this by searching our archives for the relevant information, and on our company headed paper, we will write to the relevant person, confirming the qualification you received, and the date it was awarded.

Course syllabuses 

A course syllabus covers everything you have studied on a course in order to get your qualification. In many cases this will not only be a list of the units you will have covered, but also a breakdown of the knowledge and abilities the units should have provided you with.

Qualification Comparisons 

Our comparison service is to enable to someone to confirm the qualification they have received in the past and provide mapping, where available, to the modern equivalent. We search our archives to ensure that when we provide a comparison letter to a candidate it matches the certificate they hold. 

If you are currently studying for a City & Guilds qualification, or you have recently completed one, then our qualifications comparison webpage should help you understand what your City & Guilds qualification is comparable to in terms of academic qualifications.
