Introduction

City & Guilds offers unrivalled expertise in providing qualifications that are recognised worldwide as hallmarks of achievement of skills and competences. The information contained in this handbook is designed to help education and training establishments. It provides an outline of services provided and information regarding the programmes (qualifications) for which certification is available. Please note that it does not replace the detailed regulations contained in the City & Guilds International Directory of Examinations and Assessments, nor does it replace detailed information contained in individual syllabus booklets, each of which should be used alongside this handbook. Roles and services of City & Guilds City and Guilds of London Institute is an independent organisation operating under Royal Charter. It is a non-profit-making body with an income derived mainly from the examination entry fees paid by candidates. It is called the City & Guilds of London Institute because it was founded and financed initially by the City of London and its Livery Companies. It very soon, however, supported local and regional developments and services which are today provided in over 100 countries. City & Guilds International is dedicated to providing the specific products and services required by our international customers. It is organised into a number of departments, covering both City & Guilds and City & Guilds Pitman Qualifications products: product development, market development and support, assessment and operations. In order to support our operations we have a number of branch offices, agents and representatives throughout the world. City & Guilds offers a range of qualifications (known as programmes) in vocational and general subjects. The qualifications developed by City & Guilds are designed to provide a combination of practical experience and theoretical knowledge. They are therefore recognised by employers as evidence that the holder has the right skills to do a particular job, yet equally they provide a route to further and higher education and training. Since 1995 the International Product Development team has been producing IVQs, a range of international vocational qualifications specifically designed for our overseas customers. Certificates, diplomas and advanced diplomas are awarded to candidates who have been successful in all the units of an assessment (examination) at a particular level. Certificates of Unit Credit record success in a component of an assessment. City & Guilds does not itself provide training or education courses, nor does it always specify lengths of study preparation. It awards certificates, diplomas or advanced diplomas for achievement, not attendance on courses. Colleges or other education or training establishments (known as ‘centres’) will enter candidates for assessment when they are deemed to be ready.

Suitable candidates and pre-requisites The selection of students is at the discretion of the centre and according to any pre-requisites, where they exist, as outlined in the programme syllabus. There are no age limits restricting entry for assessments. Practical assessments For certain qualifications, practical tests, coursework or project assessments are included. Such assessments may be offered only at those centres where adequate practical facilities, including machinery, tools and equipment, together with appropriate materials, are readily available. To obtain approval please refer to ‘Centre Guide – Delivering International Qualifications’. This publication provides step by step guidance on applying to become a City & Guilds centre, including examples of how you can show us that you will be able to meet our approval criteria. It includes copies of the appropriate forms with detailed guidance on how to complete them and where to send them. Obtaining approval Centres outside the UK wishing to offer a particular programme must apply for and receive approval before starting any provision. To obtain approval to run a course leading to a City & Guilds qualification, the centre will need to complete an application form and provide assurances (and possibly details) regarding suitability of the proposed teaching staff and their qualifications, existing accommodation, workshop facilities, equipment and tools. Application forms are available from City & Guilds local representatives. Customised services In addition to offering a large portfolio of work-related qualifications, City & Guilds International offers a unique service to clients who have specific assessment and/or certification needs. Customised Services provides one-off or ongoing consultancy advice on such areas as standards setting, assessment design, recognitions, accreditation systems, benchmarking or even producing a completely new qualification to meet the specific needs of a client. Customised awards have been developed for a variety of clients ranging from large multi-national organisations to training companies and college consortia. If you would like to find out more about this service we would be happy to hear from you. Assessment entries Please note that all entries for a City & Guilds assessment must be made through an approved City & Guilds examination centre.

International Handbook 2004-2005 – Subjects, awards and services

Recognition Certificates, diplomas and advanced diplomas awarded by City & Guilds are accepted throughout the world as evidence of skills and knowledge certificated to UK standards. Furthermore, a growing number of educational institutions and professional bodies have formally recognised achievement of certain City & Guilds qualifications as meeting entry requirements and enabling exemption from some examinations. Equal Opportunities As an international examination and awarding body, City & Guilds is responsible for ensuring that all candidates entered for assessment under the provision of its programmes are treated fairly and on an equal basis. City & Guilds fully supports the principles of equal opportunities and is committed to satisfying these principles in all its activities and in its published material. City & Guilds will seek to ensure avoidance of inequality in formulating its programmes and assessment techniques, in operating its procedures and in producing its materials.

The Institute of Leadership & Management (ILM)

The Institute of Leadership & Management (ILM) is a professional body which aims to build leadership and management at the individual, team and organisational levels. ILM provides managers in every sector and at every level with the active support they need to advance in management. As part of the City & Guilds Group, ILM represents a strategic initiative to support excellence in leadership and management. ILM has a network of 2000 accredited Centres in the UK and internationally which are a combination of private trainers, colleges, universities and companies running inhouse training programmes. These Centres are specialists in delivering our range of programmes for existing and aspiring team leaders and managers. Accredited Centres To become accredited to offer ILM qualifications and awards, training providers are required to present evidence on how they will meet the criteria for accredited Centres. The timescale to accreditation depends upon the Centre, and this maybe as little as a couple of weeks, or if the Centre has considerable amount of development work to do, then it may take longer. Professional Development Programmes for Managers ILM offers widely respected career development programmes that provide a flexible pathway for individuals to develop and enhance their careers. The programmes focus on developing the practical knowledge and skills necessary for effective team leading and management. ILM has developed a range of International Management Qualifications (IMQs) specifically designed to meet the needs of the international market, and these link directly to the ILM UK qualifications, although they have a different structure and assessment process. ILM International Management Qualifications* Foundation Award in Management Principles Certificate in Team Leading * Certificate in Management * Diploma in Management * * Introductory versions of each level are also available. Other ILM Qualifications Leadership (From 2005) Coaching and Mentoring at Levels 3, 4 and 5 Exploring Enterprise Starting Your Own Business
