South Asia

South Asia

South Asia faces significant challenges in upskilling the workforce, to cater to emerging talent requirements globally.

High-quality workforces with expertise in technology and soft skills are necessary to compete internationally. Similarly, lower-skilled jobs increasingly require talent and knowledge upliftment. As such, vocational training and organisations need to prepare employees for a complex, digital work environment.

City & Guilds opens doors to a new way of learning and credentialing skills that focuses on what is needed of today and preparing organisations and workforces alike for the future.

We offer an extensive portfolio of world-class skills development solutions specifically developed with the employer, provider and student in mind.

Working with employers, providers and Government alike, we help bridge the skills gap affecting the continent.

As workplaces evolve, so do we. That’s why City & Guilds sets the standard for skills that transform lives, industries and economies.

Qualifications

Our qualifications are designed to meet the needs of our customers in South Asia while maintaining an international standard. Our international qualifications are widely accepted by employers around the world.
