What we do

At City & Guilds, we create relevant qualifications that help people gain the skills that employers value. Our qualifications and flexible learning options enable people to unlock their potential and progress in their careers.

Relevant vocational qualifications

Over 500 qualifications have been developed in conjunction with key organisations in 28 industries. That's why we are recognised by employers worldwide. Our qualifications are delivered by colleges, training providers and employers. They are available at all levels, from entry level to the equivalent of a postgraduate degree, and so offer clear pathways to career progressions.
