About the City & Guilds Group

The City & Guilds Group is a leader in global skills development. We work with education providers, employers and governments in over 100 countries across the world to help people, businesses and economies grow by shaping skills systems and supporting skills development. 

The Group is made up of City & Guilds, ILM, City & Guilds Kineo, and The Oxford Group. Together, we set the standard for professional and technical education and corporate learning and development around the world.

Everything we do contributes to achieving our purpose: helping people and organisations to develop their skills for personal and economic growth. This purpose drives everything we do.


Future Proof

The City & Guilds Group has partnered with Business in the Community, and backed the Future Proof campaign to help make the UK the leading place for young people to work. 

Young people are our future. As we continue to focus on equipping them with the right skills, so that they can contribute to successful businesses and economies, we must also do more to break down the many barriers they face to finding employment. 

The Future Proof campaign is about shining a light on this issue and then supporting businesses to make simple changes that will make a big difference to young people looking for jobs in the UK.

Working with employers

We work with businesses across the globe, from all sectors. Our aim is to meet the needs of businesses, providing products and services to develop their current and future workforce. By doing so, we empower them to succeed in the global marketplace. 

Our range of learning products and services for businesses includes:

  • Researching and developing products and services
  • Providing apprenticeships, accreditation services and elearning platforms
  • Offering bespoke elearning programmes to help businesses develop their employees on the job
  • Offering leadership and management development – either through providing qualifications, or through executive-level coaching.
