Statement on the death of Her Majesty The Queen Elizabeth II from Kirstie Donnelly MBE, CEO, City & Guilds:

09 September 2022

Everyone at City & Guilds would like to express their deepest condolences to The Royal Family at this difficult time. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II was an inspiration to us all and the finest example of public service, personal dedication and steadfastness that we have known.

As an organisation which holds a Royal Charter, we are infinitely grateful for the support we, and many of our learners, have enjoyed through the commitment shown to the importance of skills and our charitable objectives.

Her loss will be keenly felt across the nation and across the world. As a mark of respect to the Queen and her family, all our operations in the UK (and many of our overseas operations) will be closed on Monday 19 September.
