Founded in 1878, City & Guilds was established following a meeting of 16 of the City of London’s livery companies and the Corporation of London, the traditional guardians of apprenticeships and work place training. Its aim was to establish a national system of technical education. Since then City & Guilds offers learners over 500 qualifications in 28 industry areas – so that they can learn skills that equip them to fulfil their career ambitions or enrich their leisure time.
City & Guilds is the leading provider of vocational qualifications in the United Kingdom. City & Guilds qualifications assess skills that are of practical value in the workplace. They are recognised for their quality and are valued by employers in every sector of business.
City of London College is a City & Guilds approved centre. In addition to offering tests for its courses, we provide testing facilities for third parties.
