Introducing City & Guilds Annual Review 2021
Since 1878 we have worked with people, organisations and economies to help them identify and develop the skills they need to thrive. We understand the life changing link between skills development, social mobility, prosperity and success. Everything we do is focused on developing and delivering high-quality training, qualifications, assessments and credentials that lead to jobs and meet the changing needs of industry.
To launch our first ever annual review we’re in conversation with City & Guilds CEO Kirstie Donnelly MBE and Chair Dame Ann Limb DBE CBE DL FCGI, discussing our achievements and successes from 2021 and what they’re looking forward to in 2022…
Despite the challenges we all faced in 2021 living through the pandemic, we had many successes and achievements.

City & Guilds' community of brands
As a leader in global skills development, we work with governments, organisations and education centres to provide work-based learning programmes in industries and sectors which offer the strongest prospects for jobs and growth.
Through our industry relationships and independent research we’re able to anticipate future skills needs that help to define occupational standards and best in class qualifications and training programmes. These are delivered in our own training centres, through our education centre partners, and in organisational work-places. They are quality assured and assessed by us and our awarding organisation partners.
