Recognition of world-class training

Gain Assured status for your in-house training to set yourself apart from the competition.

Your existing training programmes become more valuable when recognised by global leaders in learning excellence and quality.

Assured is a joint service between City & Guilds and ILM which recognises excellence in your in-house training programmes. It is a valuable business improvement tool, ensuring that you have the confidence and reassurance that your training meets best practice standards.

Supported by Digitalme, Assured provides your learners with a co-branded digital credential, enabling you to track engagement and showcase your quality skills development externally via the web.

It adds value to any type of training no matter the content, format or length. We recognise both face-to-face and e-learning, assessed or non-assessed training - and training in local languages.

Set yourself apart from your peers, attract and retain talent and provide a competitive edge for your organisation with our Assured service.
