The workplace environment is changing rapidly, and employers are finding it more challenging to attract and retain the right talent. Cultivating and building this talent from the foundation up is the key to success. But how do providers ensure quality delivery that leads to career success for learners?

Our Global Hospitality Qualifications (8064) have been developed in response to the changes in the learning and development workplace, ensuring learners have the right skills and knowledge to progress in this industry.

Aligned to the workplace

Our refreshed global hospitality qualifications, co-created with industry experts and Worldchefs, ensure that learners are fully equipped for the modern workplace. They cover both transferable and job role-specific skills, aligned with the requirements set by employers worldwide, offering a holistic approach to training learners to be work-ready. Moreover, the qualifications emphasise sustainability awareness, addressing a critical challenge for the hospitality industry on a global scale.

Digital badge included

As part of our innovative approach, we have also introduced digital badges as a key feature of the new Global Qualifications. Digital badges are a secure and verifiable record of achievement. Every learner who completes their qualification will now receive a digital badge in addition to their City & Guilds certificate. They can share their digital badge via social media showcasing their achievement and the skills they can offer to employers.
