Employer Insights: City & Guilds
August 8, 2022

Skills Builder Partnership works with cross-sector employers and non-profits to embed essential skills into a variety of contexts.

By joining the Employer Programme, employers are provided with the tools, training, resources and deep expertise to support skills development across their outreach, recruitment, and staff learning and development. This can help address challenges around building a talent pipeline, creating a diverse and inclusive organisation, and improving retention through long-term investment in their staff. 

The Skills Builder Universal Framework provides a complete approach for building essential skills across a business, and dozens of employers have already successfully introduced the Framework to resolve fundamental organisational needs. 

At Partnership Day 2022, we featured spotlight sessions for these employers and non-profits to show first-hand the impact of introducing Skills Builder approaches.

Our work with City & Guilds

City & Guilds Group is a global leader on skills development and apprenticeship schemes, with more than 2 million learners working on a range of their qualifications every year. They’ve also been a longstanding Skills Builder partner and advocate of essential skills training.

Kirstie Donnelly, CEO of City & Guilds, joined us as keynote speaker to share her reflections on the importance of essential skills over a lifetime – particularly for today’s young adult jobseekers, as employers increasingly seek transferable essential skills in the face of the lowest rate of unemployment in fifty years.
