We're shaping the future of learning

What we do

We're here to improve performance in your business by creating a better workplace learning experience

Everything we do stems from that simple idea: if we design a better experience, together we'll get better results. Workplace learning and development doesn't need to be boring - let's shake things up for your people and give them what they need to do a great job.

From your L&D strategy through to designing effective content and a powerful platform to deliver it, we'll partner with you every step of the way.

Our partnerships

Good relationships are the foundation of our success

No man – nor global learning technology business – is an island. At Kineo we couldn't do what we do without the help of great relationships – with our customers and delivery partners.

We joined the City & Guilds Group in 2012. Together with The Oxford Group we offer world-class workplace learning and development for leading businesses across the globe.

A group greater than the sum of its parts

As a City & Guilds Group business we're part of a powerful global group, leading the way in skills development, technology and credentialing.

Each part of the group has its own focus but we're united by our purpose - helping people and organisations develop skills for growth. And by working together we can offer end to end skills development solutions to customers around the world.
