Training Provider

City & Guilds provides qualifications across a range of industry sectors to support training providers with curriculum planning and delivery.

We also provide other support services such as:

  • Continuing Professional Development (CPD) events for delivery staff
  • bespoke consultancy support
  • Sector Subject Specialists
  • bespoke accredited programmes

We include on this site a funded qualifications catalogue to assist providers with checking which qualifications we have available that are funded for different learners each year. However, the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) makes regular updates and changes to the qualification offer, so please ensure that you check any qualification you may be considering for delivery on the Learning Aim Reference Service (LARS) on The Hub for final confirmation of funding and eligibility.

Each year, the ESFA publish new Funding and Performance Management Rules. These documents inform training providers of what can and cannot be funded.
