City & Guilds has launched a series of mobile phone apps as part of its commitment to enhancing learners’ experiences both in the UK and abroad. It is hoped the apps will give learners the freedom to develop their skills whenever and wherever they like.

In total, three different apps have been developed - SmartCards, A-Z, and QuizCity.

  1. SmartCards, which are currently available for Business Administration, Customer Service and Retail learners, provide testing opportunities on key learning points through easy to use flashcards. Learners can identify areas for improvement and work on them by tagging topics as “learned” or “for review”.
  2. QuizCity is another revision tool, enabling learners to test themselves through a series of multiple choice questions. They can receive instant feedback and can see their strengths and weaknesses ahead of their assessments. QuizCity is currently available for IT only although City & Guilds plans to expand into the Motor Vehicle and Travel & Tourism sectors soon.
  3. Finally, A-Z Hair provides learners with all the technical vocabulary and images they need to know for their hairdressing qualification. In addition, its search functionality means it’s even easier to use than the traditional reference books. New Apps to support beauty qualifications will be available soon.

All of the apps are available for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch as well as all Android devices. They can be downloaded by searching for City & Guilds in the Apple App store or in Google Play.
