The City & Guilds Foundation amplifies the activity we do across City & Guilds, through 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 our surplus into helping everyone, no matter who they are or where they come from, get opportunities to succeed.
Whether we’re looking at how we bring together other charitable organisations to address major societal challenges like reducing reoffending, whether we’re designing awards programmes that recognise exceptional staff training, or whether it’s designing a measurement tool that shows the genuinely transformative impact of City & Guilds on society – what flows through it all is our approach; our activity is about innovating, celebrating and evaluating.
We work collaboratively across all of our programmes and we each bring a unique set of key strengths to the team. Hover over the images below to learn more or visit our team profiles.

There is so much social need in the world and so many deserving of support. Unfortunately, we can’t help everyone directly. But what we can do is work with a selection of like-minded individuals, organisations and communities to explore new ways of doing things when it comes to skills development, in order to combat key societal issues where existing structures aren’t working.
