Affordability presents a key barrier to individuals undertaking vital training to enhance their employment opportunities.
Through the City & Guilds Foundation’s bursaries, funding for skills development is delivered to those who really need it, supporting the hardest-to-reach groups to develop skills for employment.
The City & Guilds Foundation’s strategic social investments ensure the provision of funding for training to displaced people, former offenders and people from lower socio-economic groups. Our aim is to change lives and meet the needs of society by providing the financial means to enhance opportunities for securing and sustaining meaningful employment.
Our funding activities include our bursary programme which supports individuals in genuine financial need to access training programmes to upskill, our Future Skills Commission for Prisons which aids organisations delivering employment support for offenders, and other socially-centred programmes such as pro bono work.
It is humbling to work on Foundation programmes and see the difference that funding and recognition has on individuals. This year we have worked in a more agile way so that we can quickly support those people in genuine need to develop the skills and access opportunities that they so desperately need to succeed.
