What can we help you with?


On-programme learning to prepare for end-point assessment

The introduction of the UK apprenticeship levy provides organisations with an opportunity to re-examine their existing apprenticeship programme or incorporate one for the first time. Our experts will assist you in identifying which apprenticeships are right for your business as well as provide bespoke packages to support the on-programme element of your chosen apprenticeships. If required, we can also support the creation or update of your apprenticeship strategy to incorporate the changes resulting from the apprenticeship reforms. In short, we provide end-to-end support services and resources to enable your business to best capitalise on the levy and ensure your apprentices are fully prepared for end-point assessment.

Off-the-shelf qualifications

City & Guilds have an wide range of qualifications which meet the National Occupational standards for all sectors which your business may choose to incorporate in your training programme. Our industry expertise means we can also signpost to non City & Guilds qualifications where appropriate. We will assist you with scoping out the right qualification that meets your business objectives.

Bespoke or customised qualifications

An off-the-shelf qualification may not meet the needs of your business and/or industry you operate in. Given all the relevant requirements are met, we can draw on our knowledge and expertise in creating vocational qualifications to develop the content, units structure and assessment for a qualification bespoke to your needs.


City & Guild Assured

We know that the quality of your training directly influences your business performance and is designed by you, to meet your unique business needs.  These in-house programmes become more valuable internally and externally when recognised by global leaders in learning excellence and quality. City & Guilds and ILM have developed a new recognitions service, Assured, which gives our quality stamp to your in-house training.  We assess the training against our quality standard, developed in partnership with industry experts.  

As an employer, achieving Assured status on your in-house training programmes allows you to attract, recruit and retain talent, motivate employees, upskill your teams and gain a competitive advantage in the marketplace. It is a valuable business tool, showing you how to take your training from good to great.

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

To find out more and to speak to us about your existing training programmes please visit the new Assured page.


Our credentialing service allow you to recognise your staff’s achievement within your own training programmes without the need to put them through a formal qualification or assessment. Credentials may utilise digital technology such as digital badges or take the form of traditional methods – whichever works best for your organisation. To find out more about digital badging, please see DigitalMe, a City & Guilds Group organisation.
