City & Guilds is an internationally recognised awarding body, established in 1878 and granted a Royal Charter in 1900. The Royal Charter of Incorporation denoted City & Guilds as a recognised part of the constitution and national life of the United Kingdom. Over the years City & Guilds awards have come to be internationally recognised and synonymous with high standards. Within City & Guilds, the Design and Craft sector has established a reputation for the delivery of skills-based, highly innovative awards. The move towards online qualifications within this sector is a relatively new development.
