About the City & Guilds Foundation
The City & Guilds Foundation is part of the City & Guilds Group charity, and has a specific focus on high impact social investment, recognition and advocacy programmes. Each of the programmes we run act as a catalyst for us to make a difference to people, organisations and society through investing part of our surplus and resources into helping everyone, no matter who they are or where they come from, get opportunities to succeed.
The Foundation aims to innovate, celebrate and evaluate opportunities that will make a real difference to people’s lives through skills development by:
Recognising those who demonstrate excellence and outstanding results from their investment in skills development, such as the organisations who have achieved the Princess Royal Training Award standard.
Bringing together networks of people who are committed to our purpose and great ambassadors for skills development to drive forward our agenda of skills for growth.
Measuring and analysing the full impact of everything we do – both commercially and through the Foundation – on delivering secure and sustained employment, strengthened organisations and a more skilled and productive society. See our latest impact.
Connecting our communities
Part of our purpose as a Foundation is to bring together people from all walks of life who are passionate about breaking down barriers to developing skills and meaningful employment. As the situation around Covid-19 presents a new way of learning, working, and living for us all, we’ll be sharing insights, ideas and innovative ways individuals and organisations are facing up to challenges. Whether you’re an employer, a student or a charity, we’d love to hear from you and for you to check out what’s going on around our communities.
About the City & Guilds Group
The City & Guilds Foundation is part of City & Guilds Group, global pioneers in skills development. We support over 4 million people each year to develop skills that help them into a job, develop on that job and to prepare for their next job. As a charity, we’re proud that everything we do is focused on achieving this purpose.
Through our assessment and credentialing, corporate learning and technical training businesses, we partner with our customers to deliver work-based learning programmes that build competency to support better prospects for people, organisations and wider society. We create flexible learning pathways that support lifelong employability, because we believe that people deserve the opportunity to (re)train and (re)learn again and again – gaining new skills at every stage of life, regardless of where they start.
