At City & Guilds we believe in the power of skills to build successful careers, businesses, and economies.
Together with ILM, Kineo, The Oxford Group, Digitalme and Gen2 we are able to provide a broad and imaginative range of products and services that help people achieve their potential through work-based learning.
The Group's purpose is the same today as it was 140 years ago - to help people, organisations and economies develop their skills for growth.
As workplaces evolve, so do we. We anticipate the changing needs of people and organisations, embrace technology and new approaches to learning, and work with like-minded partners to develop the skills that industries demand across the world.
That's why for 140 years, all of our products and services have been designed to recognise vital workplace skills, from work relevant qualifications to apprenticeships through to accreditation and assessments.
Founded in 1878, The City and Guilds of London Institute was founded by the Corporation of the City of London and 16 livery companies (the Guilds), to protect and promote the standard of technical education.
Our President is Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal, who took over this role from His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh, in 2011.
