Local MP, The Rt Hon John Hayes CBE MP, has been granted a fellowship of the City and Guilds London Institute for his ‘outstanding contribution to the field of education.

To be considered for a Fellowship, candidates must exemplify excellence by embodying the City & Guilds Group’s core values of leadership, imagination and integrity. Fellowship is then bestowed upon leaders and innovators who have had an impact on their industry or in education.

The Rt Hon John Hayes CBE MP was recognised for his vital role in the target setting of three million apprenticeships by 2020, and for his championship of raising the pedigree and importance of technical and vocational education.

In his acceptance speech, John Hayes CBE MP said, ‘I am humbled and honoured by the Fellowship that the City and Guilds of London Institute has bestowed upon me. A life exploring the world of craft is one certainly worth living. It brings the kind of fulfilment denied to so many in the sad sage of consumerism. The elevation of practical means building a society where each feel valued, because all feel valued. I am proud to have played a part in the rejuvenation of practical learning.’ 

Commenting on Rt Hon John Hayes CBE MP’s achievement, Sir John Armitt, Chairman of the City & Guilds of London Institute said: ‘To become a Fellow of the City & Guilds Institute is to be part of a small, select group of the most outstanding skilled professionals around today, and I am delighted that John will be joining us. The Award is made under the patronages of our Royal Charter and we have fewer than 500 Fellows, so this is indeed a very special honour. I know the City & Guilds of London Institute will benefit greatly from his skills and expertise.’
