The power of skills development

Skills matter. Skills change lives and transform businesses. 

At City & Guilds, we are committing to championing the importance of skills. 

With one out of every ten employment opportunities and an estimated 126 million additional jobs expected to be created between now and 2032, skills development has never been more crucial for the future of the hospitality industry. 

Why skills development matters

In hospitality, everything is about the guest experience and skilled staff are the backbone of exceptional service. 
Companies who invest in providing quality training to their staff see their teams surpass customer expectations which creates a competitive edge while ensuring operational efficiency. Additionally, investing in the development of staff fosters employee morale and retention. 

Our commitment to your success

As a leader in workplace training and learning, we collaborate with employers, industry associations, and training providers to create solutions that can build and drive a skilled and motivated workforce.
