Our qualifications are for people at every stage of their careers. They are designed to help people and organisations acquire the skills they need to succeed - from those looking to enter work for the first time, such as through an apprenticeship, to senior managers who want to progress into their next leadership role.
City & Guilds and ILM qualifications are delivered through over 10,000 approved centres across the world, made up of education and training providers, as well as employers.
We offer full guidance and support to education providers and employers in delivering, assessing and verifying their training programmes.
Our quality consultants review and assess existing learning programmes delivered by employers and training providers, to determine if they meet required quality and industry standards. Programmes that meet our standards receive accreditation.
