Deliver TechBac

Get up and running to deliver City & Guilds TechBac.

To help you to deliver and meet the needs of all your different learners, we’ve created a flexible approach to purchasing.

Technical Qualifications and Workplace Skills can be purchased individually, however, for your learners to achieve the TechBac, they must be combined.

  1. If you are already an approved City & Guilds centre, you’ll need to complete a Qualification Approval (QAP) Form for the specific Technical Qualification.

  2. We’ll visit your centre as part of the approval process, and give you tailored support on how to deliver City & Guilds Technical Qualifications.
