Endorsed by industry and professional associations

Digital credentials provide portable and verifiable information about the skills and achievements at the click of a button and is powered by Credly, the world's most connected credentialing network. 

Several of City & Guilds’ digital credentials are endorsed by employers, industry bodies and professional associations. This ensures that our credentials are closely aligned with employability needs, enabling learners to develop professional and technical skills for the workplace or further education. 

Endorsements allow third parties to endorse another organisation's digital credentials on the Credly platform. They also add value by validating the authenticity of the programme or training that an individual has achieved.
